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.


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.

I was looking for an extension to comment my articles and I tried this one.
I liked very much, it's very easy to install and to use!

I would recomend it for everyone, especially for the support that I received(I wrote in their forum to fix a problem and they replied me immediatly, explained to me how to fix the problem!)

One of the better developed modules you will find! It even imported comments from the yvcomment module I used before. This one is so much more complete. I am really impressed.

This is just awesome! You guys did an EXCELLENT job. I made a custom component and the integration took me about half a minute literally!!! The speed is superfast running on 850mhz PIII with SD ram. All in all both thumbs up! I'm really thanking you for this great app.

I have tried MANY,MANY and I HAVE USED A LOT OF TIME, but they all were either very difficult to manage, or they did not do what they where supposset to. This one does though. This is fantastic. There is no problems like: "Joomla takes the comments as an artickle" or the settings are not what I thought. I WILL DONATE. Thanks man.

I like this component very much.

I only miss one feature extreemly:

>>> Syntax highlighting for Code

Maybe you can put a BBCODE into it, that uses the Joomla Geshi plugin.

Now if anyone post any html or other code, the site eats it, and nothing is displayed.
The newest Version of Easy Book Reloaded also uses Geshi BBCODE, maybe you can look there how to impliment it.

Owner's reply

Current version of JComments already supports syntax highlighting by GeSHi but this feature is disabled by default. Visit our forum and post question about this feature - I'll explain how to enable it.

Just excellent, I have tried a few comment programs now and installed jcomments just to try it.
Well, I am keeping it, it worked straight away, it is not 'over the top' with what it does, it is easy for the sites visitors to understand.
Like I said, excellent, thank you for JoomlaTune for a terrific product... it is free as well, how can it be free?

Works very well. It's a nice tool, complete. The installation was somewhat difficult because I had trouble making it work in browsers other than IE8. I rewrote the link to the scripts directly in the header of my template. I did this because every time he used Chrome, FF or Safari to write the commentary, the system reported to me that the name field was blank. Doing what I did all the work wonderfully. Congratulations to the developers.

I don't leave many reviews but I had to for JComments.

I've tried quite a few commenting systems for Joomla but this one is simply, by far, the best one around.
Easy to use, lots of features and most importantly, the support is GREAT.

I had an urgent issue with site going live and 'smart' the main man there, helped me out really quickly to solve the problem (which was with another extension).

Thanks again Smart / JComments.
