JComments Popular ComponentModulePluginExtension Specific Addon

Editor's Note
  • This extension inserts a backlink to the developer.
The JComments is a powerful and easy to use AJAX based comment system for Joomla with flexible ACL, smiles, BBCodes and avatars support. Working on this release took extra eight months, all this effort was spent to make the component more stable and usable. Considerable time was allotted for code optimization and improved compatibility to third-party extensions.

* Advanced ACL system
* Antispam (CAPTCHA) and flood protection
* 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
* RSS feeds
* Automatic updates (require Joomla 1.7+)

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!

I really like this one and the fact that they are aware of security issues also is just a big plus. Alot of different integrations are supported including JomSocial avatars.

Just got installed, the best part is the comment does not come up in print, the only thing I would like to see is a cancel comment, it may already be there I still have not gone threw it all. Very clean, wish it was the first one I tried, less is more:)

This was the best Comment System I have ever tried... Thank you and keep it on...

JComments is without a doubt the market leader in its field. Unfortunately, I cannot use it, beacause it writes into the footer areas of my website, a circumstance which can be corrected with the 'refresh' button in the browser. My users will not know that trick, however. The program would, therefore, seem to need an auto-refresh function somwhere in the routines. Also folded commentaries and pagination would make the program perfect.

Thank you for your review and I'm sorry that you can not use JComments on your site at this moment. If you need the auto refresh feature - visit our forum and leave post about this in suggestions section. Development of the JComments never stops and in my mind I could add such feature in one of future version.

I was using JoomlaComment in Joomla 1.5 with legacy mode. In few minutes I installed JComments and imported all existing comments!

A lot of interesting options, and have a very nice default template.

very quick to install.
Integrates with Virtuemart - which is very important for me.

has the whole lot of settings to make just perfect for every admin.

and it's AJAX based which make it so sleek and elegant.
Didn't find anything better than that. Used ChronoComments for a year and switched to this now. Very happy. Great work. Thank you
