I have a few feature requests, though, that I would love to see in future versions. Maybe they have been mentioned before, but anyway...
1. The ability to add custom fields (or turn on/off predefined ones)
Sometimes name, subject and comment is not enough. What about email, website url, AIM and so forth? I guess you would have to use an additional table for these, as there is no "room" in the content table for them.
We're thinking about this now, custom (or optional) fileds may be added to the metadata field of content table.
2. The ability to turn of the check for reserved names (admin, editor etc.)
I have quite a lot of admins and editors at my site, registered with their full name. Now they can't use either full, first- or lastname when entering a quick comment while surfing the site. An alternative could be to turn this check of if they are logged in, either backend or frontend. I don't use the frontend login, so they need to be a check for backend login as well.
I agree and will implement this.
3. Email notifications
Fire of an email to the author of the article (or some other predefined adress(es)) when someone comments on it. That way they can also quickly catch those intances when a users uses a reserved name, such as admin or editor.
This work is in progress (notification of site admin only as a first step...).
What's about "notifications of authors of articles", I think this function should use some Joomla! core "notification" capability (if there is any...). I didn't dig into this yet. May you find information, how to implement this in "Joomla! native way"?
3. Client side check when form submitted
Agree. May you help me to create such script?
This component is just what I need for my site, so I'll be glad to help out if you need it. What about a Norwegian language file?
Of cause, translate them (3 files!) and send them to my email!
