The code doesn't really follow the MVC pattern but this is not the point.
What about accessibility?
Last thing, i find the publish/unpublish mecchanism from frontend really tricky when i tried to change its look.
I think instead of planning to add new functionalities (useful for who?) you should concentrate in improving the code, performance and making accessible what you already have done.
PS: regarding accessibility have a think about an audio captcha.
1. This component was developed and at this supports both Joomla 1.0 and Joomla 1.5. Because Joomla 1.0 didn't support MVC I have use my own implementation of templates... However in current implementation the templates they are fully separated from code. And you also can overload JComments template in your Joomla's template. In nearest time I'm going to stop supporting Joomla 1.0 and begin using Joomla 1.5 MVC implementation. I think it would be more correct and more productively.
3. I don't understand what problems have you got with changing look of these buttons.
4. If you've any suggestions about improvement code and performance - please go to our forum and post them in appropriate forum section.
Thank you for your criticism, but do not forget that is always easier to criticize than to do something ;) Visit us on the forum and let's discuss how to make this component better.
Installation process is Smooth and Display a list of stuff completed successfully.
Installation automatically install 3 Plug-ins and again amazingly they are automatically published and ready to use.
Just imagine how much time the developer tried to save. Think if you have to install all the plugins and then you have to enable them Searching from 100's other plug in list.
Please keep up the good work.
This is one component where the old adage no longer hold: you actually get more than you pay for!
While I paid $30 or $40 for Jomcomment, I have supplanted the commercial comment system for this open source soluton that works flawlessly.
I would argue that 1.) It's more powerful 2.) Easier to customize and style the template 3.) Cleaner close 4.) Integrates with K2 5.) Free :)
I feel like an idiot not having used it earlier, but with my "subscription" running out on that other component, I took a look at a bunch of alternatives and JComment leads the pack...hands down.
My website is listed in the Joomla showcase, so if you want to see it in action styled quite differently than the demo, take a look. I won't spam the JED with a link. ;)
Well, there is one thing that I don't like (5 stars anyway): the captcha pictures are most times VERY VERY hard to read. Sometimes you have to reload up to 5 times to get a picture that is human readable. And the explanation how to do this is missing: If you can't read the picture, click reload (several times).
Go to our support forum and post your problem description, please. I'll try to help you.
