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.

This is an excellent component. I have installed it on my Joomla 2.5 site and works perfectly.

I don't know if i'm doing something wrong but there's one thing I'm not able to figure out with the latest comment module. I'm displaying only the comments (and no author, read more, date etc.) its displaying properly but I'm not able to link the comments to the articles that has these comments. I don't want to use the "Read More.." link since it takes up space. Is there a way I can the comment title to link (same as "Read More.." would do)??

Excellent work!! thank you so much.

I had a problem with JComments after upgrading my site to Joomla 2.5.5 (it wasn't a Joomla problem). I got top support on the JoomlaTune forum - fast, efficient, brilliant! And free! I don't know how these guys do it. Well done, JComments team :)

Since I started using this when it first came out, all I can say is that at v2.3 this comment system rocks. Not only is it free, but for an admin, it makes life absolutely a breeze. The report to admin feature is a lifesaver, and the blacklist IP is sorely needed with all the spammers out there. They listened to their customers and gave us exactly what we wanted (and didn't!). Keep up the great work and look forward to the next release.

This is a great extention! Works just how it says.

The only problem is, the additional plugins don't work.

For example, the 'top posers' and 'most recent comments' modules don't link to the user's profile.

I had a search of their forum, and there is a hack to make it link to profiles yourself except... you need jcomments avatar plugin, which doesn't work on Joomla 2.5 so if you want to show top posters/recent comments don't use this extention.

If you don't really need that function though, then this is the extention to go with for definite!
Owner's reply

The JComments Avatar plugin for Joomla 2.5 has been released! Sorry for such long delay with release... New version of plugin supports update feature so since this version you will be notified by Joomla Extension Manager when new version will be released.

It must only work with the old version of Mosets. It doesn't with the newest. They shouldn't advertise that it integrates with Mosets.
Owner's reply

At this moment JComments works with Mosets 2.2.3 (I do not have higher). Step by step manual has been updated some time ago.

I want to note that I am ready to update any existing integration but some extensions are commercial and I have no free money to buy an extension for integration. So if an integration with certain commercial extension needs to be updated - contact me and give me this extension - I will update integration.
