Installed and up and running in minutes. Configuration was a breeze, no issues whatsoever with seamless Avatar integration with Community Builder. It really worked right out of the box.

Awesome software!

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".

Installed with on click.
Imported comments and subscriptions from CompoJoom with one click.
Minimal and very functional layout. Could optimize it with a few easy options settings.
Even works on my phone with mobile joomla! (I had a heck of a time trying to get CompoJoom work with mobile joomla - did not succeed)
Good job guys!

I couldn't believe all the settings that were thought of! This component worked great, right out of the box!

The CSS was a bit of a chore, because we had to change some colors around. But, other than that, it did exactly what I wanted it to do and so much more.

Very good extension, much earlier in Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 2.5 now works very well.

Thank you very much for being able to have it.

I can't fault this component. It installed no problem, the instructions are clear and concise and it works and integrates easily with my template. I just need to create my own template for the comments section now and I'll be away!

I was just about to mention one tiny niggle that I had (more a "like to have" really) which was an admin setting to disable the "comments" link on the category blog layout. I've just found it in the plugin settings. Marvelous!

I'd recommend this to anyone.

Best extension for comments ever! I've been using it in my website for 2 years now and works without problems or errors. Works fast, administration is easy and there are lots of adjustment options.

This was probably the easiest component to install and it works! Now I have a comment feature to all my articles without a lot of hassle. Thank you to the developers.

This component is simply excellent and its FREE! There are many modules and plugins available and it can connect to many other component too. There are a fast way to import the comment datas from another component to the JComments.
The installation and setup are very simple and fast.

Thank you very much for this nice component!

Almoust perfect, but: if you have article with page break, comments will be displayed on both pages of article. This is why i am geaving just four stars

I waste so so much time downloading extensions, installing them and trying them out only to find they are either: bug-laden amateur and useless, or otherwise tricky and don't do quite what I want them to do and never will.
Then once in a hundred downloads I come across one like JComments.
And my only question to myself then is "why the hell didn't I try this one first?"
This was on Joomla 2.5.6 by the way.

Not too experienced with Joomla!, I was impressed by the ease by which I could get results with JComments.
Well integrated to Joomla!, it allows to use the same logical structure for commenting and permissions plus the possibility to embed tags activating or inhibiting the comment function for particular articles.
I see two (potential) flaws in JComments
1- If your visitor has access to an article but is not allowed to comment it, he will get an invitation to comment and then be told he is not allowed to do it. I would prefer not to offer a non available option.
2- When a particular comment is about many articles from the same screen, you might think of inviting comments with the end of the last articles. Accepting that invitation, the visitor will be redirected to a "fresh" screen bearing only that last article inviting for comments. So he will comment on something he does not see anymore.

I suppose there is ways to work around those, but I was not able to contact JoomlaTune's forum or any other knowledgeable instance about it. I do not think this lack of responsiveness characterizes JoomlaTune, might just be a temporary glitch in their systems.

This component has a lot of configuration options. It supports a lot of languages and - more important - a lot of native and third-party components like joomla content, K2, AcePolls, Phoca Download, VirtueMart and even Community Builder: On the developer's site, you can download a special plug-in for writing using JComments in Community Builder profiles (for free!). That plug-in allows your users to comment each others profiles.

The component is easy to install and to administrate. It has a great access rights system and some very useful customization possibilities.
