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.
I encountered a non-critical problem with JComments Avatars but the problem was fixed quickly by the developers. Excelent support!
I can recommend this extension to everyone.
And, of course, I want to thank a lot to developers. Great job, keep it up!
1. Simplicity in everything. (installation, integration, upgrade)
2. Integration with all popular extensions.
3. Very high quality support that is being done by professionals.
It took me roughly 10 minutes from the time I found JComments to fully and functionally integrate JComments into my component. I hate reinventing the wheel and when they make it this easy to do my day is a great. I thank everyone involved in making this component. PROPS!
