Very good extension, but the Dutch translation isn't very accurate. But the language files are easy to edit with notepad.

Having testet a many joomla comment plugz, i am quite pleased with it. Installing is easy, it has a powerful config and it runs smooth - plus it is not ugly looking. Wish there was some CSS editing option there but "after all, you're my wonderwall."

Hats off, Gentlemen!

In the last month or so the JED has seen some really nice additions. Like the joomla praise adminlite template, Lyften Bloggie, alpharegistration to name a few - while others old favorites have become much more slick as they mature.

Jcomments is a worthy member of my standard stuff directory. Once you have checked it out I'm sure you will feel the same.

The install was smooth and the configuration extremely well set out and commented. You will have comments running on your site within 5 minutes.

Theres no need to type in a list of category, section or article numbers. Just select from the list. To remove commenting from an article just add the {jcomments off} tag in the article.

When posting a comment you can enter text that will only be visible to registered/logged in members.

There are lots of nice touches and supporting modules. A comprehensive list of comment systems can be imported, as well as external avatar sources.

All in all this is a killer comment system looks and feels modern in both the back and front end.

All we need now is Joomla 1.6

Thanks for bringing this great component to the community under the GNU/GPL.

I think this is the best comment add-on at the moment. It has the best general look (not overbearing or understated - just right). There is a bit of set-up involved with permissions - but it is easy to do (just have to set for each individual user type). The captcha feature doesn't require other programs or codes etc. to work (which is a huge plus in my mind).

The only thing I will mention is the filter option which lets you "replace" certain words. If you want to filter the words "dung" and "dunghole", the order they are listed changes what happens. If "dung" is listed first then "dunghole" would display [censored]hole. The "dung" part gets censored before it reaches the "dunghole" listing and then doesn't show the whole word as being censored. Not really a problem because the bad word is gone, but with some words you could still figure out what was being said. It’s good that the system censors parts of the word (why dunghole became [censored]hole). It just means that if you want the whole word censored, then you need to put the small words at the bottom of the list and the big / compound words at the top. Very minor!

After playing with six or eight other comment add-ons to find “just the right one” - this one is awesome! Great job!

You can use regular expressions in filter because these lines passed through eregi_replace function.

Was time to see Jcomments on JED!

First of all i want to talk about the excellent support! The developer is open to new suggestions and he is a hard worker when dealing up with bugs etc.

Now about the component it is really hard to believe that is free! It is stable as rock, it is very cool looking and it offers so many features that are taking commenting to an other level.

A big plus is that can use the avatars from all the well known forum/community systems with no hacks and without to waste your time.

..members can use the "new comment" notifier to subscribe to followup messages

..and you can make it work almost to anywhere thanks to the excellent integration with many major components!

Generally there are many more to mention like AJAX, re-sizable comment area, characters counter etc etc

Installed normally!
set it up in 5 minutes
Imported the comments from yvcomment in some seconds and from that time everything is running flawless !

So this is the end of my very honest review!
5/5 and a big thank to the developer/translators and anyone who is involved with this project!

I've been waiting a lot for an extension like this. Highly customizable, very easy for install and manage, free... Fast and secure migration from other comment components. I'm very impressed with the included permissions system, and JComments is well translated to spanish.

I have only a suggestion: Add support for SMF avatars through JFusion.

Thank you, developers!

I've tried several Joomla commenting systems and I find this to be one of the best.
It's very feature rich and also good looking.

You can have individual settings for every usertype, which is very useful.
And also a report function for comments.

The support for custom BBCode is very good too.
It enables you to create your own buttons for any video site etc to embed videos in the comments.
A Youtube button comes as default with the installation of JComments.

The only thing I miss is an "IP ban" feature. But I saw it's coming in a future version.

This is Amazing component.
Far the best from the non-commerce and maybe only jomcomment can compare to this one.

Check this yourself! You'll be surprised!
