JComments Popular ComponentModulePluginExtension Specific Addon

Editor's Note
  • This extension inserts a backlink to the developer.
The JComments is a powerful and easy to use AJAX based comment system for Joomla with flexible ACL, smiles, BBCodes and avatars support. Working on this release took extra eight months, all this effort was spent to make the component more stable and usable. Considerable time was allotted for code optimization and improved compatibility to third-party extensions.

* Advanced ACL system
* Antispam (CAPTCHA) and flood protection
* 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
* RSS feeds
* Automatic updates (require Joomla 1.7+)

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.

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...

Really awesome!
I would recommend this comments component.

but why it shows Joomla! 1.5 only in the JED ??
While it supports up to version 2.5 as per the developer website...

This comment component is simply the best component for this purpose. I recently finally migrated to the new Joomla! 2.5 and was looking for Jcomments and was dissapointed to see that Jcomments was not available for 2.5. I tried several other components that were not as good as this one. I nearly gave up but decided to check the Jcomments site itself and saw that a 2.5 version was available! I'm happy again, but you should place a 2.5 icon on this site :)

I've been so desperate for JComments to be available for 2.5 -- and now it is! I notice it isn't shown in the JED that way yet -- but go to the developer's site. Get it. Install it. Say goodbye to the nightmare lack of comments on newer versions of Joomla. I can now update a number of older sites that I'd delayed updating! YES!
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!

I m facing a problem in JComments Module.
I downloaded Module from JComments website for joomla 2.5 and installed it. I set all configuration. But Module is not showing in website.
Why ?

One of the main reasons I haven't upgraded my website to Joomla 1.6/1.7/2.5 is jcomment for joomla 1.6-2.5. Thanks for this new release. I am now also translating 2.3.0 into Khmer (km-KH) language.
