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".
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 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.
The installation and setup are very simple and fast.
Thank you very much for this nice component!
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.
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.
The component is easy to install and to administrate. It has a great access rights system and some very useful customization possibilities.
