I love that you can customize which categories it appears on, which fields will show, which social networks it can be shared on, permissions, display name and others.
I couldn't get the Recaptcha field to save my keys, and the create/publishing dates disappeared from my articles, after installation, but I will tinker with it, and see if it's a settings issue. Even so, there's a default captcha to use, and I will investigate what happened with the article dates. Regardless, it's a great extension and I'm grateful that it was free.
But show me comment system thats works with all components?
I can say, that Komento is really the best comment system. It's looks beatiful and professional.
There are tons of options and settings.
Seamless integration to other components.
It's only needs to integrate it with most popular components, for example adsmanager, community polls, dj classifieds.
Thanks guys for your next masterpiece!
It would be great to be able to use it with AdsManager extension. Lets just hope we get it in there next update.
Thank you for the kind compliments :) We will be adding support for AdsManager in the future version of Komento.
Again, Komento is AWESOME!
Thanks for letting us know of such errors! We have fixed our release yesterday (We were having some packaging issues with the component) but the latest release, which is released on 10/08/2012 will work with SobiPro :)
You can upgrade by accessing our downloads area.
Thanks once again!
Brilliant and amazing for a free extension - all Stack Ideas extensions are really well worth using!!
And service - I posted a question and then came here to write this review and whilst writing this, back came the answer to my question - that's service.
This, to my knowledge, is the only commenting component that allows registered jomSocial users to post as guests on K2 items. It is such a pain for registered users to have to login before they want to comment on our content. Komento has solved this for us!
Way to go, StackIdeas - thrilled with your products, your design, your interface and your support!
works great the front end and back end is perfectly thought and coded!
why i gave 4 stars! you guys should make a question and answer module!! please!!
Hi, thanks for your kind words and support!
The questions-and-answer component was long been available at our site. It's called EasyDiscuss and it is also listed in the JED. Feel free to explore more about EasyDiscuss.
Even more remarkable is the support provided by StackIdeas, which is superior to anything I've encountered in decades of programming and systems administration… cheerful, competent, generous, and _fast_.
I use both Komento and EasyDiscuss and tend to fuss over my implementations. I don't rave casually, but the support really is remarkable. In some cases, StackIdeas solved my problems while I was cranking out another espresso before sitting down to solve them myself.
1) Their software is great.
2) The support is great.
3) Their attitude is great.
In the last two weeks, I have bought EasyBlog, EasyDiscuss and I have downloaded the free Komento. I'm using all three because they really are that good. But the thing that really sets these components apart isn't the software, it's the people behind them.
I'm no coder so I've had a few questions I needed answering. Each time, I got an email back really fast (one within a minute, several within 6 minutes). In other words, their support is unbelievably fast.
But the thing that is best about them is that they don't just identify and fix your problems for you, they will even fix conflicts with other software that has nothing to do with them.
When I encountered a problem with another provider's template not being perfectly suited to using with Komento, Jewell at StackIdeas fixed the problem for me within two hours. I have *never* come across this level of service before.
Bottom line, their software is great. But great software really is only as good as the people behind it and these are the best people in the world. I kid you not!
Then, by the clean and well designed layout.
The free version is fully functional so I could test it completely.
There were some integration problems, but the team at Stackideas is there all the time (really. around the clock)to assist, personally. They dives into the site, deals with other extensions and provide unique solutions.
I never met such a professional and dedicated developers and all of that, before I even paid a cent! This is one of the cases I'm really happy to pay for an extension, though everything works right now, with the free version.
Practically: this is a very versatile, clean commenting systems, which is already integrated with the core joomla articles and with K2 items (way better than the core K2 commenting system). It seams that it is easy to develop the integration with other content extensions.
It works seamlessly in other languages, including RTL!
Don't hesitate. Go for it if commenting is an important feature of your site.
