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!

Highly recommended!

I haven't tried any other comments' component, but this one does the job, and does it well.

great component! I only don't like one behaviour: If you view a document via "readon" you'll see all entered comments rather than showing only the link to the comments. I wonder where to change this behavior (e.g. would be nice to have a parameter like showing/hiding the comment form)

I had no problems installing or modifying the component. There is a linkback to the developer's site, which I had a scavenger hunt finding to remove (the developer was actually helpful in the process, even though he didn't want to be) the link, but all is well.

I cannot recommend this extension enough.

First, this is an awesome comment component. It's was easy to setup and has a quick way to get up in the article. Within a fee minutes of installing I had 6 comments waiting for approval (goes to show how long overdue this was for our site).

After approving I found that the time it displayed for each comment was 5 hours ahead of the actual submitted time and doing a bit of research I found out that this has been an unresolved issue since 2009!

So rather than having to change my users experience, or hacking any files, or dancing a chant around a fire, I fired up phpMyAdmin, went into the table and changed the times manually.

So this is going to be a daily chore for me maintaining this component.

If your server time and Joomla time differ, be ready for this. I read somewhere that this was fixed in an earlier version bit obviously it hasn't.

To the developer:
If the webmaster sets a time in Joomla, they explicitly want to use the time they set. It's part of the Joomla installation process. Please use just that time.

The JComments uses Joomla API's functions to work with date and time. So if you've set correct time in Joomla you'll have correct time in comments.

In older versions (prior JComments 2.1) JComments really had problems with time zone. But this issue has been fixed about year ago and all users who reported about this issue said to me that all fine now. If you've any problems with displaying of time in comments you need to create new topic on our support forum.

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.
