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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
