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

* Smiles & BBCode support

I'll try to say in english, so that everybody could know, that these component/modules/plagins from smart are just great. But the main advantage - technical support, that always helps. Smart, thank's!

It is an amazing component and fully customizable but the thing that makes it the best is the great support from joomlatune and "smart" himself. Thanks a lot for spending so much time for technical support.

I have changed from another comment extension to JComments 3.0.0 [03/10/2013] and there were some problems with importing the old comments. But SMART from JComments helped without delay, made a dump of my database and created a bugfix, so everything is working fine.
A great extension with superb support. Thanks SMART.

I had a problem with jcomments loading to the top of the page each time the Add Comment button was pressed. Failing to resolve the issue, I looked for help on the jcomments forum. I got a very fast response that soon put everything in order. Great extension, great forum.

This is one of the best in Joomla. The problemis that it looks very bad and old fashioned the design.
Owner's reply

I would like to note that the perception of design is always very subjective. Most users are satisfied with the default JComments template (you can verify this by reading the reviews). In cases where the standard template does not fit - you can always make your own template to match the style website template. In addition, in the near future, we plan to release a set of additional templates for JComments. Stay tuned!

This is the best extension to be used with joomla 3.
I got an excellent and quick technical support from the developer to solve one compatibility problem with catcha code, Chrome and AceSEF, that is already solved with an aditional extension you can download in their web site.

Thank you for the great extension!

Perfect comments system! It's truly complete and I recommend it to everyone! 5+ stars.

This is a very good extension and a breeze to install and configure. Thanks to the developer and i am going to keep the back link intact in support.

It is well designed and very stable, however the hidden link to the developer's website ruins it for me. Also the look of the comments is not as professional as it could be. The coding work seems great. I think they should have a payment option to remove the link, or at least mention it in their website.
Owner's reply

I have to note that JComments does not has any hidden links to developer's site - it has only one visible link and this link could be removed in the JComments' template. The JComments is released under GNU/GPL license and you can make modifications of the JComments' code and templates for your needs as you wish.

The link to the JComments site helps me to advertize the JComments and gives me additional motivation to improving the JComments. I have to remind that I am developing and support of the JComments since 2006 absolutely free.

I am very grateful to users who leaves the link, but if this link is unsuitable for your site - you could remove the link. In future version I am going to add an option to hide this link via JComments configuration.

If you have any extra questions regarding this link or if you want to make the donation to the JComments project you can contact me via email.

FIrst of all - great extension you have made there. The thing is though, I really want to upgrade to Joomla 3.0 and this is the only extension that prevents me from doing it. So when can we expect a new version coming our way with J 3.x support?
Owner's reply

Thank you for your message and high rating! At this moment the JComments for Joomla 2.5 and Joomla 3.x is already in internal testing' stage. We have already installed this version on some production sites and it works fine. Also I have updated modules for Joomla 2.5 to work with Joomla 3.x. But some small changes have to be made - I am going to complete all works during a week. Stay tuned!

I got this simply to replace the comment feature on Lyftenbloggie (that does not work). It was really easy to install and worked right away. It is a lot more powerful than I expected and I will definitely use it for more.

I had to test out a lot of Comment Components before I found JComments, but I am very glad I did. It is very clean, functional, flexible and extensible and does what it needs to do perfectly, so I highly recommend it!

I will give you the highest possible rating because I have used your commenting system for over 2 years. However If one is planning to have thousands of comments then think twice. My news website has over 10,000 comments and the site is now so slow. If you are going to have less than 5,000 comments then Jcomments is the best. And as long as you are not interested in engaging a third party commenting system then Jcomments is still the best option. Thank you guys, but its sad my huge website now requires a 3rd party option.
Owner's reply

Thank you for your review and high rating! But seems you have some issues on your site which are not related with JComments. May be this is problems with server's configuration or with caching.

I know sites with JComments where about 500 000 comments. And I have copies of databases of some these sites for tests. Before releasing of new JComments version I make performance tests with these databases. Also I have two old users who uses (and tests all new versions) JComments since 2006. At this moment on the first website we have 35 000 comments (not too much for 7 years) and the second one has 85 000 comments. And they have not any problems with performance.

In my mind 10 000 comments is not such big number of comments to get performance problems. Besides the last JComments version has alot improvements and optimizations and it more lightweight and fast than previous versions.

So if you have got issues with performance - contact me via email (you can find it easily in JComments manifest or code) and I will try to help you.

this days is all facebook comments, but not everybody want his FB profile everywhere, this tool makes easy, clean and beautiful for users to comment in the articles I want them to comment, also the module makes me easy to show the comments and reviews in the places I need to to make my site more catchy.
Many thanks developers!

I've used JComments in one of my recent projects, it was quite easy to set up but required a nice deal of customization to match my client's needs. Good, overall, suggested!

I have worked with this extension in all versions and all very well, however
I need this application that is compatible with joomla 3.0
Owner's reply

The JComments for Joomla 3.x will be released soon. I'm working hard on this version - this version will be not just compatible with 3.x, it will be fully reworked for Joomla 3.x without any legacy code for J1.5 or less. It will increase speed and performance of the JComments. Stay tuned.
