Editor's Note

The JComments is a powerful and easy to use AJAX based comment system for Joomla with flexible ACL, smiles, BBCodes and avatars support.

Considerable time was allotted for code optimization and improved compatibility to third-party extensions.

* Multilanguage support (more then 20 languages)
* Smiles & BBCode support
* Avatars
* Easy migration from 3rd party components to JComments (50+ extensions!)
* Simple integration with 3rd party extensions (more than 40 extensions!)
* Joom!Fish support (separate comments for each language)
* E-mail subscriptions
* Quick moderation (from e-mails)
* Report to administrator
* Ban IP

* Automatic updates (require Joomla 1.7+)

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!

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.

great extension, and what is better is the user support.

Works ok, if you don't mind that some functions, i.e. enabling notifications does not work. At the moment if you enable it, you cannot save the configuration. It simply crashes and takes you back to the control panel..

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....

Quite disappointing...

Definitely has potential, but need work. Also a feature suggestion - display full comment list by default option.
Owner's reply

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).

Had this on my test site for around 5 minitues before putting it on the the main site. Quick and simple to install, and does just what it needs to.
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...

I like it very much... Added to my Joomla 2.5 site...
And waiting for the avatars of community builder option...:)

Wow, something that works out of the box. Have just installed and had it up and running in minutes. Have Community Builder installed (not finding that anywhere near so easy to say the least!), but Jcomments works fine with it, no problem. Just need to work out if it is possible to prevent active urls and symbols within comments, if that is possible. And the Captcha is maybe a little unreadable at times. But other than that...
So nice to have something that works straight away, without having to fiddle around with it.

I just installed the component and really think its what I am looking for! I only had 1 issue and it's a linked text over the users name that says "Refresh Comments List" and I can't get rid of it? Otherwise I think its fantastic!

Just what I needed to get my comments section up and running, works like a charm. Tons of options and config, all very nicely implemented...
