Cackle

This system is very convenient, if you need a huge number of supported social networking and quick access to administer comments. But the main drawback is the paid subscription plans. The cheapest option for 1-year project will cost 500 R. This despite the fact that your website will give weight to another in the form of outbound links to this component.

In addition, a rather long over the script of this extension, which certainly doesn’t give him odds over other counterparts.

Overall rating: do NOT RECOMMEND!

RokComments

The tool is quite nice due to its versatility. It can be used to introduce comments the most popular systems such as IntenseDebate, Facebook, Disqus, Livefyre. As for downloading the script, you can’t say something definite, as it did not notice any problems with Joomla. To highlight this extension is also nothing, because comments don’t work at all, and this third-party app, so the administration review will not occur so smoothly. Overall – a great solution for those who want to extract the maximum from the minimum settings.

Overall rating: recommended, BUT NOT ALL!

Komento

This component was originally developed for the needs of the user, and can tell that the developers have managed. However, there are some complaints about this decision. First, it is not working correctly in all versions of Joomla. Secondly, you have to understand the intricacies of the settings of this component, before you put it to your website. Well, and thirdly, I have he simply stopped working at some point for unknown reasons. But in pluses it is possible to bring virtually all required third-party components such as K2, EasySocial, JomSocial, FlexiContent, ZOO, EasyBlog 3.5, VirtueMart, redSHOP. Only this feature makes Komento one of the best in its kind.

Overall rating: recommended, BUT NOT ALL!

DISQUS Comments

In my opinion this is the most successful component of the review due to its versatility and flexibility. This extension offers all the basic functions such as moderation of comments, social networking support and ease of use. In addition, it is necessary to note separately the download script – fast loading pages increases the conversion rate of your product. The advantage is the fact that this component is free, which means you don’t have to pay for those functions that are in the system.

Overall rating: RECOMMEND to EVERYONE!

JComments

Very useful component, and functional. With it you can make a comment with the highlighted text special codes BBCode, smilies, etc., which cannot be arranged in many other plugins. In addition, support is provided for a very long time, and it’s free. There are additional tools for the implementation with it separate systems, such as a directory ZOO. The only drawback for me was the lack of full replacement styles through the admin panel, as well as more convenient location of some elements, but it is rather a matter of habit.

Overall rating: RECOMMEND to EVERYONE!
