Using newest release 1.0.7 and SVN 9064.

Installed both component and plugin and manually created table jos_yvcomment as still getting SQL 'LIKE' error on standard install.

When accessing yvcomment in component dropdown get:

Joomla! was unable to locate the stated resource
component not found

Hi, this doesn't work because 'LIKE' is used inside function, that checks if Table exists  :(
It seems yvComment won't work on MySQL v. < 4.1 without changing its code.

the version of MySql is 4.4.1

once component and plugin were installed, without jos_yvcomment table being created, it was added manually as a copy of jos_comment and renamed.

So it looks like my usage of 'LIKE' operator is somewhat incompatible with your version of MySQL. I think, problem is in the 'TableExists_db' function in 'components/com_yvcomment/helpers.php'. May you investigate the cause of this problem: is this MySql bug or what?
Edited: I've just checked MySQL Lifecycle Policy, and it tells, that active support of 4.X versions ended last year. So does it worth to spend our time on it?

Hi!
First of all, thanks for a good plugin!
I've just have one problem. On the frontpage the "Comment (x)" makes the position of the following article title wrong. How can I change this (like make
after or something)?
Also, I've made an translation file for Swedish users that I will upload further on! :)

Hi,
I love your comment plugins, but I think there is some weird thing, I'd would to ask...
I am using Joomla 1.5 RC2 without any other plugins or extension (for test purpose only) on my XAMPP.
Installation for ur plugins and component were success.
Afer setting the plugins and published, all seem working well.
Try to give a comment, the result was ok too.

But when I check, via PHPmyAdmin, I found that the comment is save in the jos_content not in the jos_yvcomment
and after I create a menu, for Section Blog Layout for the related commented section, all of the comments also appear here. (Because of the comments were saved in the jos_content).
Is it how ur plugins work? or There is something I miss?
Should the comments save in the jos_yvcomment rite?

As I see, there is some conflict between CSS of your template and CSS of yvComment (or absence of CSS for yvComment HTML...)
So you have to play with CSS definitions.
My advice is:
1. Turn off "Use Default CSS file" option of yvComment (it is in "Advanced parameters" now) and see, what you get without special formatting of yvComment.
2. Use style definitions from "components/com_yvcomment/assets/default.css" as starting point for customization of your template.

Whats about adding "some
" - it is not needed, because yvComment HTML text is already wrapped in DIVs, so you have to define their positions...

Hi and thank you for your response!
Your question is known to me  :), and I tried to write detailed information about this on the yvComment's Homepage. Please, read it!
In short: Yes, you can have comments in separate table, if you configure yvComment accordingly.
Good luck!

Hi,

I have a short wishlist:

1. pagination (I think you are working on it, after looking at your website...). I'd want to suggest you to see how maxcomment pagination  works: It is a good example  NOT to  follow. I mean I'd like a separate pagination article/comments.

2. I'd like the option to open comment reading/writing in a separate popup, again, differently from maxcomment. Comments and form only in the popup, not the repetition of the whole article... 

I don't have any idea if what I'm asking is a programming challenge...  :-[ so if it is just ignore this list  ;)

bye

ricc.

Hi, I am testing the plugin and it seems ok on 1.5 RC3. There's a few things on my wishlist, but sofar so good!

I read that yvcomment is available in Dutch as well.

How/where can I activate or download the Dutch version/translation?

Thanks,

Hi, Ronald!
Dutch language files are already in the package, see:
yvCommentComponentX.XX.XXX.zip/www/administrator/language/nl-NL/nl-NL.plg_content_yvcomment.ini
yvCommentComponentX.XX.XXX.zip/www/administrator/language/nl-NL/nl-NL.com_yvcomment.ini
yvCommentPluginX.XX.XXX.zip/www/language/nl-NL/nl-NL.com_yvcomment.ini

- these files (like other language files) are installed automatically only if you have Joomla! Dutch language pack installed on your site before installing yvComment (You should see this language in the backend in the "Extensions->Language Manager".
"Joomla! accredited translations may be found here: http://dev.joomla.org/content/view/42/66/

Postby simplr » Sun Oct 14, 2007 11:39 am

awww bummer ... my mistake. I installed the Dutch language pack AFTER installing yvcomment.

To fix this, is it safe to use Winmerge to merge the component and plugin files to my joomla install or should I uninstall and install again?

Thanks a lot for your kind help,
Ronald

I think, it is safe to copy that language files to their places (to the same dirs as in ZIPs...).

yvComment - version 1.8.0 released

Postby yvolk » Sun Oct 14, 2007 4:17 pm

What's new in this version:
1. Added pagination of Comments in plugin mode. You have to turn pagination on in yvComment plugin parameters. Due to Joomla! restriction of JPagination class, only one pagination control may be on a page. So yvComment turns on "pagination of comments" for particular page (Menu item) only if pagination for this Menu item is turned off.
2. Fixed bug of previous release: no Comments were visible in the "List of Comments" view (in the backend also).
3. Quite a lot of refactoring, so new bugs may appear at first...
4. Added translation: Swedish translation (Thanks to Mikael Karlsson (aka Mika3l)).

This version works both for Joomla! 1.5 RC2 and RC3... Welcome!

yvComment - version 1.9 released

Postby yvolk » Mon Oct 22, 2007 8:31 pm

What's new in this version:
1. Added BBCode support. To have BBCodes support:
  • Install (and enable!) yvBBCode extension.
  • Set "Use BBCode form buttons" to "yes" in yvComment
  • Enable BBCodes replacement for the whole page in yvBBCode
    or set "Replace BBCodes in text" to "yes" in yvComment
2. Added options for Smileys: "Use Smiley form buttons" and "Replace Smileys in text" just like for BBCodes.

I just tried to post comment on your web site and got information message: "Guest user account is not set. Please set 'Username of Guest' option." - that is absolutely legal. See more details in the 7. of the "Quick Start" section of the yvComment Homepage.
So everything looks good  :)
I'm attaching screenshot to this message.

Great plugin - Thanks for your time and effort - i'm sure that has been lots of hard work.

One quick question.  does yvcomment support making an email address along with name required to post a comment?  It would be nice if it does.  Thanks!

yvComment allows link to "Your website" (both for guests and for registered users) along with name. And this link is not required. See more details in p.4 and p.7.3 of Quick Start section.
I think link to a site is enough... Who will write email to some unregistered "guest"?
On the other hand, if user is registered, you may attach "Contact" information to him (this is standard Joomla! feature...) and, maybe, yvComment should link (optionally) not to the "Web page" of this Contact, but to the page with this contact information (Like "Profile" in this forum), which contains both web page link and email...

Hello yfolk,

The system-captcha plugin is enabled and i treid i think all settings. Using joomla 1.5 release from 5th october.
Treid with 2 diffrent themes ...

Everything else seems to work ...

Suggestion:
Email Notification on new comments.

And would it be possible to add the comment function to eg. DOCman?

Cheers, 1L/gm

Hi,

installed on actually SVN from last Night... works fine. thx for your Extensions.


Now some "wishes"  :-[ : and Bug-Reports

- Check Username and Usernick to prevend use Names/Nicks from other User. Check of Username is already in the Extension but not a check of the UserNick.

- Minimal Wordcount to apply Comment

- Templates for Comments (?)

Some Validating "Errors" on Frontpage....

Code: Select all

<div class='yvComment' id='yvComment'>

Warning:
anchor "yvComment" already defined
An anchor with the same name is already defined. Each anchor should be unique.


Edith says:
A spezial Plugin-Tag would be nice to exclude some Articles from Commenting
Example: {nocommet} in an Content make the Comments disabled

Edith says again:
If Admin is logged in (FE) and shows the comments an unpublish Button for an comment would be nice

Edith the 3rd
