Easy to install even for the newbie I am in the world of Joomla. Backend, the config panel is estonishing. This is very serious work. Documentation is excellent. Frontend is sober and nice. Would be difficult to do better. Keep the good work and many thanks for your impeccable work.

I am using Jcomments on my newly developed site for the first time. I've made some modification to the CSS and found some problems.

I posted my problem on their support site, the response was very good.
I'm happy that I am using this extension.
I would like to suggest them to use PayPal for donation since I don't like to use my cell phone for money transfer.
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review! Unfortunatelly PayPal does not allow to recieve payments in Ukraine. So I can not accept donations via PayPal.

It has been a while ago since I've started to use JComments. I was a very satisfied customer, but suddenly the application stopped working.
I tried an upgrade, but that didn't work.
So I've posted a 'bug report' on their forum, and I have been helped very, very well. The problem was not JComments but another app.
I am a very satisfied user again, not only for the functionality but also because of the support via their homepage/forum!

Great job!

I investigated every comment component I could find, tested quite a few, and even bought one before settling on JComments. It's fully featured and easy to install and configure. I can't think of a single feature it's lacking!

By far, one of the best free extensions going on out there. Works perfectly and everything imported without a hitch.

We've purchased a number of commercial comment systems in the past but this one made us feel like we should have asked for our money back. No joke.

The only tweaking necessary was to match a dark themed site and thanks to the fine code work, had no trouble finding anything.

We'll tinker with this for awhile and if we can find something that needs improving, we won't hesitate but all looks good so far.

Superb job Serge and thanks!

I love it in 3D HD! Really good and works perfect. used it as a replacement for blog components and thus my registered site users are able to comment on my articles that I have marked for use as blog posts. Kudos

An amazing solution! But it needs a "Big Red Button." The administrator must be able to completely disable the ability to comment on one or two clicks. Because JComments used for many extensions Joomla! In the case of a large and "irregular" user activity, the variant that the "Big Red Button" will need: disable, disassemble, and then connect JComments again.
Owner's reply

Thank you for this suggestion! I am agree that this would be useful feature. Could you make request for it in our forum? And describe please how it must work (fully disable displaying of comments or only disable adding new comments).

Great add on - just as it says - 1 irritating aspect that reduced the points - it messes up my readmore button and makes it a boring link - on several different templates
Owner's reply

By default JComments replaces Joomla's readmore link with it's own but you could disable this via Content-JComments parameters and use Joomla's readmore style. Also you could set CSS class for the readmore link and it will display as Joomla's one (for that you need to use 'readon' class instead of 'readmore-link').

I am using it in non standard way. I have made questions/answers variant. Something as yahoo answers. Instead of standard translation i made translation with needed words in needed place.

The best part is the support. Their support forum is very active and efficient. I was having issues with number translation in comments and found almost instant support.

The features are more than sufficient and works perfectly.

The design is elegant and customizable.

FIVE STAR.

I request the team to make options for translating dates also.

All the very best to the Jcomments team. :)

I work with Joomla for more than 7 years now and I've seen a lot. On the basis of my experience I can say that this extension is perfect example of what an ideal Joomla extension should be. It's FREE, it's fresh, light, has out of the box functionality, possibility of easily adding different features/integrations, constantly developing, with great and user-friendly developers' website, fast support. The single fact that this extension comes pre-installed on many leading Joomla templates speaks for itself. Highly recommended as a default Joomla comments extension to everyone. Definitely 5 stars! Awesome job, guys! Thank you!

And another outstanding fact is that the team is Russian. I'am Russian myself and I'm proud to see the excellence of Joomlatune team. Truly talented, energetic, workaholic, self-sacrificing, with a solid sense of style and intuition. This is what REAL component development is all about. Hats off! Keep up good work!

What can I add to the existing comments? After a period of time struggling with other components, here is one that works well, does what it says, no need for a manual, etc. etc. etc.

The developer even took the time to add the extra polish on the administration side.

Bravo!
