Editor's Note

The JComments is a powerful and easy to use AJAX based comment system for Joomla with flexible ACL, smiles, BBCodes and avatars support.

Considerable time was allotted for code optimization and improved compatibility to third-party extensions.

* Advanced ACL system

* Multilanguage support (more then 20 languages)
* Smiles & BBCode support
* Avatars
* Easy migration from 3rd party components to JComments (50+ extensions!)
* Simple integration with 3rd party extensions (more than 40 extensions!)
* Joom!Fish support (separate comments for each language)
* E-mail subscriptions
* Quick moderation (from e-mails)
* Report to administrator
* Ban IP

* Automatic updates (require Joomla 1.7+)

Is a very good application for comments, the only feature i think is missing is the integration with Akismet. With akismet active, the captcha tool can be disabled and the spam will be very small.

Even when it is a free extension it sure looks professional. Very easy for everybody to install even for those who just begin to work with Joomla 1.5 like me. It is user friendly and i will recommend it to everybody who is looking for that kind of extension. Thanks a lot!

I have to admit, this is one of the best extensions for comments. One thing it lacks is the ability for 5* AJAX ratings as well.

And most importantly, it doesnt look good on dark websites. Is there a way to change comments background to black and text comments to white??

Apart from that, great functionality, easy setup and install and works out of the box!

It's an easy straight forward component that works. It was easier having Jcomments perform than it was to login and right this review. JComments rocks!

very, very good tool. Thank you all which worked for it. It's just what I needed and it's easy to handle. I only got stuck a bit with the switch comment on/off in an article because I didn't see that these buttons wrote into my text.
Thanks a lot

It works great and best of all, it's super easy to set up. The easiest install I've ever seen with and pre-configured right out of the box the way you likely want it. Even better, it has very clear explanations for each item. A dream plugin to use.

Very useful and professional looking. Clean and efficient. Tons of options and features. Only recommendation I would have is to include a "Flag as inappropriate" function for comments, so that users can flag a comment, and it will be removed until an administrator marks it as ok. Once marked ok, it cannot be flagged again.
Just in case someone was struggling to get the JComments "Read More" link working on articles other than the first article in blog layout, apparently JComments and AutoReadMore are not compatible in that regard. Not sure why it still works on the first article in blog layout, and not the remaining articles. Anyway, brilliant component, thanks for it.

Thank you for your recommendation but JComments 2.2 already has Report to administrator feature. It allows to site visitors send reports to administrator about comment's content. In next version I'll add ability to unpublish comments after N reports.

I really like this component! It's easy to install and easy to use!

One thing I do miss; star ratings... It would be great if you could write a review and give a rating as well!

But again, this is really a great extension!!

This is a very simple to setup, nice to look at and very effective comment plugin. This doesn't clutter up space on your site. I haven't tried any other but I don't think I would want to after this one. I got exactly what I was looking for. Before going for others, try once at least.

Being easy to install and having flexible options are not uncommon amongst JED entries, but the level of committment and support from the developer are what make this extension head and shoulders above the rest.

Many applications are well done but can become abandoned by busy devs whoa re volunteering their time and energies; this is definitey not the case here! I was in a bind and Serge immediately came to my rescue and figured out quickly what my issue was (and it was my own fault, of course). I can't thank him enough for his kindness.

The comments system is one of (if not *the*) best out there with flexible options and integrations with a large number of 3rd party applications out there. Well documented CSS classes allows for tight control of the look and feel, though out of the box it looks great.

I can't imagine using another comments system since installing on a production site, and look forward to whatever features come next!

I found this component today and I installed it on my live site. I have replaced old !JoomlaComment component with just one click. All my comments are available in new comment system. I found also support for Joomfish, CB and Agora, I use all these Joomla components on my site. Thanks! Configuration is easy and powerfull, CSS is easy, however JComments is short of skins for dark background sites. In fact there is no skin for dark background. But after two hours (css is really easy) I customised existing skin to make it compatible with my #222222 background website.

No way - there is only option for rating. 7 stars of 5.

Excelent job! Thanks!
