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.

* Multilanguage support (more then 20 languages)
* Smiles & BBCode support
* Avatars
* Easy migration from 3rd party components to JComments (50+ extensions!)

* Joom!Fish support (separate comments for each language)
* E-mail subscriptions
* Quick moderation (from e-mails)

the best extension that I have seen. It has almost everything you can imagine for comments component, and a little more)

This is the best commenting-system I know!
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).

I thought I would need 3 components to have (1) comments, (2) comments subscription and (3) multilanguage support. However, with jcomments you get them all in one pacakge and a lot more! Thanks! One thing I cannot handle though, is how to set the email notifications so that when I receive an email about a new comment, the from field is empty. Not sure why this is happening. Otherwise, a perfect solution! Thanks again!

This component is pretty near as simple as it could be with all the features it includes. I really like this. I look forward to continued development where more features will be added!

I have just used Jcomments instead of Jom Comments on a J1.5 site and I am impressed. The site was brought to a standstill by the previous JoM Comments installation and I desperately needed a fast site with a comments system integrating with Virtuemart. I removed Jom comments and installed Jcomments instead. It worked perfectly straight from the box... This is a good modification. I still use Jom Comments on my J1.0 sites but on 1.5 it is from now on I'll be using Jcomments. On the subject of running slow, perhaps that's just Joomla 1.5!

I have installed this product on my server. Installation was smooth. It has a professional look. However, no comments were able to add to the site. After clicking "send" a wheel start rotating and nothing happens further. Can anybody tell if I am missing anything please? Thanks.

I use JComments Component and JComments Avatars on our site and found it a great Joomla extension. It is easy to configure but the feature set is really rich. What I appreciate is that it integrates well with other third-party extensions (JoomlaFish and ccBoard in my case).

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!

Very simple to use but yet powerful!
Maybe in the next version the admin user could change IPs (otherwise you always have to change the infos with PhpMyAdmin, and that's not very fast ;). I've not seen an option where you can block IPs yet ...

One of the best comment extensions around. (I did tried many). Easy to integrate it in other extensions (Soby2, K2 for instance).

Rich of features, easy to customize via css.

This program is so clean and professional looking that they should be charging money for it. It's really easy and straight forward. Excellent pick!

The most attractive thing I noticed - this is an elegant form for adding comments and most frames commentary.
1. Simplicity in everything. (installation, integration, upgrade)
2. Integration with all popular extensions.
3. Very high quality support that is being done by professionals.

I have been developing my own component for a client and decided to try JComments so the users could comment on videos. I.E. similar to youtube.
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!

Almost perfect, not to use mootools and prototype lib adiconar to greatly increasing the amount of JavaScript + pages I think 2 times in use because it will have a direct impact on usbilidade seo and seo your site.
Another important point would be to replace methods addCustomTag for the use of addStyleSheet and addScriptDeclaration.
If you need some developer to collaborate in the implementation of these features will be grateful to work for the extension of these requirements need only mention that to overcome any of this category.
Owner's reply

The addCustomHeadTag method used only in case running in J1.0 (for compatibility reasons), but for Joomla 1.5 always used addStyleSheet and addScript methods.
