Re: yvComment - Comments extension for Joomla! 1.5

Postby tilt32 » Tue Aug 02, 2011 9:35 am

hi joomla community!

first i want to say that your yvComment extension is awesome and thank you for making it free for everyone.

So after a few time of probing different configurations i have a special problem and thought you could help me.

My Problem is everytime i try to post a comment without filling the required fields for the Emailadress / name, the extension will link to the standard preview which is loading the articles wrong (showing intro text, hidden readmore-links..., most of my articles are displayed in blog layout). thats why i want to ask if i can do something like an overwrite do strip the preview and simply show the error messages on the same site under the associated textfield(name, email).

I hope you can help me.

Also i hope you understand the problem i tried to describe above^^ because my english isnt good at all

with best regards

Re: yvComment - Comments extension for Joomla! 1.5

Postby penske1 » Thu Aug 04, 2011 6:20 pm

I'm not sure if yvComment can do this, but maybe someone can help.

My site has 3 access levels: unregistered, registered, and unlimited. I would like to have unregistered and registered be able to view article comments (works fine now), but I would like to specify that only unlimited users can POST comments. Currently I am only able to specify that registered users can post (which includes unlimited).

Changing the access level of the plugin to unlimited would prevent unregistered and registered from viewing comments.

Thanks!

I am using this component with Joomla 1.6.3 and I am really satisfied (even I'm pretty much beginner)
I have just one question. Is there any chance to include the count of comments in my latestnews modul (not yvComment module)?
Thanks in advance.

P.S. Great extension, Yuri.

spanish langpack installation fails

Postby esljf » Mon Aug 08, 2011 12:22 am

Great extension --thanks Yuri!-- but I am facing a weird issue.

After successfully installing other yvComment langpacks, spanish language pack installation fails with message:
Error! Could not find a Joomla! XML setup file in the package.
But spanish language for Admin IS installed.

Joomla! Version: Joomla! 1.5.18 Stable [ wojmamni ama wojnaiki ] 27-May-2010 18:00 GMT
Installed: Spanish (es-ES) Admin 1.5.23 5-4-2011 Spanish translation team: Comunidad Joomla
Installed: yvComment 1.25.003
Failing language pack: yvCommentLanguagePack_es-ES-2.00.001.zip (downloaded from http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/yvcomm ... tion=index 2011-08-07)

What could be the problem?

Managed to install yvcomment into joomla 1.7.0

Postby fade2gray » Tue Aug 09, 2011 8:39 pm

After much hair pulling and gnashing of teeth, I managed to install yvcomment into joomla 1.7.0.

I found I had to extract and edit install.yvcomment.php then re-insert it into yvCommentComponent-2.00.003.zip.

FIND

Code: Select all

$db = & JFactory :: getDBO();
$TableName = $db->replacePrefix('#__yvcomment');
CHANGE TO

Code: Select all

$db = & JFactory :: getDBO();
$TableName = '#__yvcomment';

Probably need to do the same with uninstall.yvcomment.php, but I haven't tried uninstalling yet.

The only problem I have found since, is this: I created several threaded comments and replies to one article and then tried deleting them. They all deleted OK except for the initial comment that give me the error
Could not delete: comments on this Comment are present
, but there aren't any - so I can't delete the last comment by conventional means.

Any advice please?

Edit: Sorted - had to deleted the trashed comments from the bin.
I don't code - I just butcher that of others'.

Thank you fade2gray,
I've debugged this and found that Joomla! 1.7.0 has a bug:

Code: Select all

$db = & JFactory :: getDBO();
$TableName = $db->replacePrefix('#__yvcomment');

sets $TableName to the empty string :(

I filed a bug report to Joomla! Tracker:
http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla/tracker/?action=TrackerItemEdit&tracker_item_id=26617

BTW, I found this version of Joomla! doesn't work with MSIE 9 also...

Hi!
Language packs v.2.xx are for yvComment v.2.xx only!
So you should install language pack v.1.xx for yvComment 1.25.003
(e.g. yvCommentLanguagePack_es-ES_1.21.001.zip for Spanish)

After building the packages from the svn, immediately after installing I see what's shown in the images below - I don't understand the difference in module status and id number, also the module version number is shown as 2.00.0 and not 2.00.3 like the other components.

Different statuses and IDs may mean bugs/inconsistencies of Joomla! ...
Module didn't change since v.2.00.0. So it's version number wasn't changed.

Hi Tilt, you need to override the "layout": /components/com_yvcomment/views/comment/tmpl/default.php
You may simply delete something|everything from the block:

Code: Select all

<div class='Article'> ...

Thank you very much. Obviously this works.

Please notice that yvComment for Joomla! v.1.5 homepage:
http://yurivolkov.com/Joomla/yvComment/ ... -5_en.html
refers to this donwnload links page for additional languages:
http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/yvcomm ... tion=index
and looking there for spanish langpacks, I could only find the v.2.0.0. This seems to be the case with other languages too.

Thanks again!

yvComment - Number of comments in LatestNews module

Hi ivaana,
yvComment has "View name" = "Most commented" +
"Layout name" = "003 (Like 'Latest News')".
This is close to what you want:
it lists articles + number of comments, not "Latest" but "Most commented".

In the MVC (Model-View-Controller) pattern this means that yvComment needs another model to retrieve articles by other criteria... You may see and try to hack '\components\com_yvcomment\models\mostcommented.php' file to work as you wish...

Hi mate,

I wanted to ask you if there is any chance this component/plugin can be implemented in other component.
For instance I'm using joomsport component and would like to use your comments on matches from Joomsport etc. They have some sort of commenting system but it doesn't work.

Any advise is appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

Hi, I have succesful installed yvComment,

I can see the yvComment component in the front end, Not registed users are allowed to make comments. I'm the administrator and I see also the list of comment from the users in the back-end. I set up " allow comments on comment - Administrator's reply only" because I want to be the only person who replies comments, but I dont see any "REPLY" button in the list of comment (back-end). Honestly I don't find an answer to my question. I would like to receive any help. If you need more information about my configuration, just ask me.

SOS.
Thanks in advance.

vComment - aceSEF

Postby zadof » Sat Sep 17, 2011 8:18 pm

I use aceSEF and the only way I could get these two plugins to work together is if I disable aceSEF for yvComments. Is there a better way?

Hi,

I've installed yvComment component and plugin in a joomla 1.7 site, but the extension is not working.
I explain:
only the "Please register or login to add your comments to this article" message is displayed and nothing else.
How can I fix it?
the URL is
http://www.alliotiko.gr/testa/index.php ... 7-37%CE%B2 (Sorry for the long address, its in Greek)

Pls advise

Hi,

I uninstalled yvcomment, installed greek language pack for administrator, re-installed yvcomment component & plugin, but the problem isn't changed. I haven't installed any language package for yvcomment, because the Greek one is still in version 1.8.xx

Any suggestions?

No, seems you have not read everything. Otherwise you would have seen this
(3. Preparing for configuration):

2. If you plan to enable guests (visitors, unregistered users...) to post comments:

  • Create special 'Guest user', who will become (from Joomla's point of view) Author of all comments, created by different guests (guests are not themselves registered users of Joomla!). Joomla! doesn't have built-in 'Guest user account' (Guest user) to impersonate guests, so you have to create such user yourself:
    e.g. (in the backend menu->'Site'->'User Manager'->Click 'New' button) create user with 'Name'='Guest user' and 'Username'='guest'.
  • Guest user has to be in the Author group.
  • If you plan to edit comments with Joomla! built-in editor, this 'Guest user' should be enabled.
