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.
Have posted on the forum with that question about a week ago but haven't heard anything back.. Looked up other messages on that forum - about a month between from question to a response....
Definitely has potential, but need work. Also a feature suggestion - display full comment list by default option.
I am really sorry that you had problems with JComments. Unfortunatelly last month I had some problems and I had not internet access. Now I have solved this problems and on next week I will answer all questions on forum. And I hope that I could help with your problem. You can also contact me directly by email (could be found in JComments' sources).
Very good componment. But please update the Plugins?
Would help alot if the avatars where updated to 1.7.
Can't believe this is free and has no links back to the makers site...
So nice to have something that works straight away, without having to fiddle around with it.
Note to the developper: Pls use another donating system. I've read u only got 45 dollars from donations. Considder using paypal or another payment system. I would have dontated if i did not had to enter my cellphone number.
In short: this installs like a dream. The default layout works on most sites. You can easily put an over-ride or even customize your own theme for it. It works with KCaptcha, so a simple, clean captcha system that doesn't scare off commenters.
Gravatars work on older versions and I see they are coming for newer versions. Voting? Sure. Specialized permissions? Absolutely. RSS? Works great. Want to customize your smilies? Tree or flat display? It is all here. I've used this on some big production sites and had nothing but joy.
THANK YOU to the developer for updating this component!
