Of course, it didn't work for me. Looking at all the feedback I noticed that someone said that they were using Yoothemes and that it didn't work because of that. That got me thinking that it may be a template problem.
So I went ahead and installed it on another website that I have that uses the Joomla stock template and sure enough it work.
I'm really bummed because there's no way that I'm going to change the whole look of my site with a new template just to get this thing to work.
I'm using a BlackBear Pro template if anyone has any ideas for me. I really want to use this but at this point I think I need to cut my losses at 3 hours.
My advice is to ask developers of the "BlackBear Pro template" to support yvComment. This means, that they will probably need to create custom CSS for yvComment, compatible with their product.
