I have used jcomments on various sites since Joomla! 1.0. I liked it except that it lacked essential social features such as commenting as google/facebook/openID. I therefore moved to Disqus for a while, until I figured out for myself the many issues that make people hate Disqus.
So back to jcomments then.

Now all these years later, I am disappointed to see that jcomments has not made much improvements to build on its initial good design. It is a solid commenting system but it has failed to update to a more social era.

One example of this: importing from Disqus is a feature that has been requested since 2009, but has been left unadressed and posts about it are just ignored on the developer's forum. For me this is a game breaker obviously, in terms of my own system, but also because it illustrate a lack of development.

So yes, jcomment is good but it only does the bare minimum, which was great for Joomla!1.0 but is no longer enough.

I find JComments better than other comment components for 3 simple reasons:

a/ Its "tree" display (very clean).
b/ its immediate compatibility with many "content article" components.
c/ the possibility to import previous comments already existing on my website.

In conclusion, I switched very quickly an existing site with comments to a new comments display, clean and beautiful.

On top the comments are in my website ... no need to use an external platform like Disqus, Intensedebate, or else. The users do not need to subscribe another service to place comments.

Excellent component!

I was looking for extension for adding site content comments but I couldn't find solution with expanded options for administrator. My friend said: Try JComments - it is the best extension. I have installed this extension and is perfect. Works very good and gives full options of administrators and users in comments. I am under big impressed. Excellent solution.
sincere thanks to the creators of Comments Component

As a relative newcomer to Joomla! (but learning fast!) and a complete novice with php, etc., it was a pleasure to be able to install and configure JComments on my 2.5.8 website in a very short space of time and with virtually no hassle. The only problem I had was my own fault: I forgot to save my SETTINGS preferences before browsing to another tab, and so had to configure them all over again (not a difficult job, actually). JComments is amazingly fully-featured for a free component, and so far has worked exceedingly well. It's unusually customisable as well.

Pros: Very easy to install via Extension Manager, loads of features, email notification to users of follow-up comments, quick editing by admins of comments via email, built in kCaptcha, flat or tree view, good documentation, nice price (free!).

Cons: None really. I do concur though with 'donnan' below that it would be nice to be able to change the heading 'Add new comment' to 'Add comment'.

Congrats and thanks to the developers!

I've used this component on both joomla version 1.5 and 2.5 and can thoroughly recommend it. Easy to load and easy to use for even the novice.

I am trully impressed.

Ready to use out of the box, huge set of parameters to tune for demanding configurations.

Beautiful styling, no tweaking CSS needed (probably for the first time I have downloaded an extension).

Only thing I miss is paid version without author information in the footer.

Thank you for solid work.

Excellent in my 1.5 site, so I downloaded for my 2.5 site. The problem I'm having is in the 1.5 version, there was a PLUGIN that allowed a icon to display in the article window for COMMENTS ON or COMMENTS OFF. I don't see a plugin for this in 2.5

But the tag is [jcomments on] so I just typed that in the article. Yet the tag shows in the front end, and not a place for comments.

Am I doing something wrong? As I say, LOVED this in 1.5, but having some issues in 2.5 and cannot find documentation to help.

First of all, I appreciate your work and the extension is absolutely impressive. I have tried a lot of them out there and none compare. It's the most complete, feature rich, functional Non-Commercial comments package period. It works seamlessly on my community website. A 5 star rating for this extension.
The best to you

This works exactly as described and matches the demo.

Setting up was a breeze and I had the base comments hooked into my K2 installation in a couple of minutes.

Excellent component!

The Comment system could be good, and I see the big amount of settings unfortunately I cannot save the settings. After clicking on the save button, a message is displayed about the Succesful Save, but after clicking away and back, it is clear that nothing was saved :S

This does exactly what it says and more!

Super easy to use. I had it up and running in less than 3 minutes.

The admin area is fantastic, easy to follow and configure.

It's the complete comments package. Have a simple comments on your site or have a comments section that is featured packed.

I would like to see the ability to change text of headings in the admin area, for example, instead of having the default heading "Add new comment" allow users to create their own heading. I would change it to "Add Comment".
