I finally installed JComments after running through a host of other non-functioning discussion extensions. JComments was easy to install, a snap to configure, and integrates nicely with Community Builder. What a relief. Oh, and unlike others I have tried, there is good documentation. I highly recommend it!

This is a great extension! It's super easy to use and configure. The only thing missing is I wish I could have an option to show the comments and the form without having to click on "comments". Other than that it is nearly perfect! I'll try to find a way to work around this issue. If you want to preview it check it out on my website Kenouz! (google it cause links are not allowed...)

I had a older version and it worked wonder. I had to delete older version yesterday because of some host memory issue with a script. I thought I lost all the comments. I installed the new JComments and it imported all of my comments from the previous install. Great job!

I tested all commenting extension and this one is the best and the coder even gives an excellent forum support.
I hope we see more version of this extension.

As being the top one on the list I gave this a try. It works well on articles but I needed to show comments the default joomla category list. No solution as provided in the support forum after almost a month.
Templating and layout is also a problem for me. The default template is simply awful, bulky icons that don't display well in dark background, boxy and poorly aligned elements and customization is a pain with messy CSS files and missing element class/ID tags.

Tried out a different component and was pleased to have comments display in my category view in less than 5 minutes with easy styling options.

For being new at Joomla, I found this mod easy to use. It give the users many options to choose from. It also was a simple download with no problem. Jcomments is great mod to use when dealing with users posts

I installed JComments at a Joomla 1.5.21 website.

I was pleased that the configuration page showed up right after install.

I like having each configuration option briefly explained right on the form.

This is the first commenting tool I've installed. At my client's website, there is a page for each of four books, and we want visitors to be able to comment on each book. JComments seems to have everything I need. The main feature I wanted was for the website owner to be able to moderate the comments, and that seems to be really easy, especially with the moderation links right in the notification emails.

I also like the ability to set permissions by user role.

I'm an intermediate Joomla web developer.

We decided to let unregistered users comment. If we had wanted to restrict comments to only registered users, JComments would have let me set up that too.

This extension works great. It is easy to use right after download. For a site that needs to have users comment on articles then this is what you need.
The only thing I would add is a star rating system.

It's a nice component and easy to modify.
Only downside is the way how the form is contstructed. It won't pass the xhtml strict validation because it doesn't work if you turn off javascript in your browser.
Owner's reply

The JComments uses AJAX so it could not work with disabled JavaScript. Regarding XTML strict validation - it could be passed after 3-4 modifications in form's code. Contact me on our support forum if you needed some help to this modification and I will try to help you. Upcoming JComments version would pass XMTL Strict validation.

Hands down, the best comment system for Joomla. I started out using jomcomment but got frustrated and found Jcomments. Not only is it easy to install and configure, it integrates with every component on my site (jomsocial, hwdmediashare, easyblog, and listbingo).

Download and install Jcomments, you wont' be sorry!

This is a perfect extension for comments. Easy to install and use and compatible with many other extensions. I'm using with Kunena forum and just had to change the code a little bit (using instructions from the great support forum) to make it use kunena's avatars. Excellent work, thanks a lot! Worth a generous donation!
