Hi,
how is the right way to insert the newest version?
I installed the version of 19. July, work finely, then i got the versionwarning.
I deinstalled 1.5.1, got warning:" JFTP::delete: Bad response " at component and plugin.
I installed 1.5.2 and there is another versionwarning.
Now it does not work anymore!

$Id: CHANGELOG.php 7357

Thank you!

Hi, Damaris!
I tested v.1.5.2 on latest build - it works ok... but it doesn't work for "Old Beta"  :)
I fixed yvComment to work in Beta 2 also, so please test v.1.5.3 of yvComment or/and move to the new nightly build.

We thought, that Captcha tool will be a separate plugin, and yvComment will use it. CoolAcid started this work (see his message above), but I didn't hear any news from him lately.
I think, it will be better, if you translate today's version now and don't wait for some major upgrade, so German-speaking people will have it now  :)

yvComment doesn't require any registration. I didn't get, what registration are you talking about?  :-\

yvComment - v.1.6 supports Captha

Postby yvolk » Mon Aug 06, 2007 6:48 pm

Captcha support was added in version 1.6. To have Captcha support in yvComment, please install OSTWigits - Captcha extension - many thanks to CoolAcid for it!
That Captcha plugin, though, needs some improvements. E.g. I can confirm, that it is too difficult to recognize "secret word" without error  :(

Hi there,

I can´t even install this to Joomla 1.5RC1  :(

Do you have any idea?

        *

          Database errors:
          Error message: "You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'LIKE jos_content)' at line 1 SQL=CREATE TABLE jos_yvcomment (LIKE jos_content)"
          SQL="CREATE TABLE jos_yvcomment (LIKE jos_content)"

As I may suggest, reading these words from MySQL manual:
In MySQL 4.1, you can also use LIKE to create an empty table based on the definition of another table, including any column attributes and indexes the original table has:
CREATE TABLE new_tbl LIKE orig_tbl;

- you have MySQL version < 4.1
If I am right, please upgrade your MySQL Server  :) (v.4.1.0 is dated 03 April 2003)

By the way, "PHP 4 end of life" was announced recently...

What's about yvComment, you may easily modify the package to install without errors - just find and delete these lines:

Code: Select all

$query = 'CREATE TABLE #__yvcomment (LIKE #__content)';
$db->setQuery($query);
$Ok = $db->query();

- from the file yvCommentComponent1.06.004.zip\www\administrator\components\com_yvcomment\install.yvcomment.php

In this case you will have to "use content table" in config (because jos_yvcomment would not be created), - and that is preferred option, IMHO.

PS: GoDaddy may give you MySql 5 and PHP5 for $4 per month...

Postby swiftly » Wed Aug 15, 2007 11:24 pm

I dont like the approuch of putting comments into the content table. As has been said before other checks and tools are needed for commenting. Also I dont like the dirty content table. What happens if by accident an author of my site uses the comment category/section for an article that i wrote? It will be published without check of the administrator or editor?

But still interesting to see your view on this. i will follow the developement.
And i am glad you are making something for J!1.5!!!
Thanks

Re: yvComment - Comments extension for Joomla! 1.5

Postby Stian » Thu Aug 16, 2007 9:35 am

yvolk,

I just installed your component and it works like a charm. Great work so far!!

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.

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.

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.

3. Client side check when form submitted
In addition to the server side check of name, subject etc. I would like to see a JavaScript checking the same things first.

What do you think?

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?

Best, Stian

Re: yvComment - Comments extension for Joomla! 1.5

Postby Stian » Thu Aug 16, 2007 10:33 pm

Another thing:

when the plugin is not published the code below returns either "section", "category" or "article":

Code: Select all

$type = JRequest::get('get');
echo $type['view'];


When the plugin is published it always returns "comment". I need this variable in my template, and after publishing the yvComment plugin it's useless.

Anyone know a workaround? I need to know if an article is displayed...

When someone comments, in the article manager the writer of the article is put as a not linked (to user) name (name not username).

Also, is this yvcomment also possible to integrate with Community builder (see all comments in member profile and link from commenter to his profile.)?

Just installed yvComment plus captcha on latest svn build but after publishing the plugin i get this error above any articles regardless of which sections have been 'comment enabled'.

Warning: Missing argument 2 for JPlugin::__construct(), called in /home2/******/public_html/***/plugins/content/yvcomment.php on line 60 and defined in /home2/******/public_html/***/libraries/joomla/event/plugin.php on line 59

Hi,

I just installed yvComment and Captcha and everything works well, thanks a lot for that good plugin. But I have a small question:

- How can I hide the comment form? I do not want to keep the form opened after a comment is inserted.

Thanks a lot

Take me into account in case you make your component multi-lang. I'll translate the lang file

Good luck and keep the good work

My view on extending content table is in this message. I'm still sure creating separate table for different "type of content" is a dead-end track.

What's about permissions: I think, that this problem should be resolved by improved Joomla! access rights system (that is planned for the next release of Joomla!, as far as I know, see 'access and Right-Management').

We're thinking about this now, custom (or optional) fileds may be added to the metadata field of content table.

I agree and will implement this.

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"?

Agree. May you help me to create such script?

I will have to add this feature to yvComment, so, by default, "Add your comment" form will be hidden ('collapsed node' with 'Add your comment' link).

I have one request.

would you please make an option to put the username instead of the name of the erson that comments?!!

I feel, it is a bit a privacy matter in some sites to post a name (especially in CB build in suites, which say the name will not be published on the website!)

Thanks

Using 1.5RC2 new installation. When installing component get:-

CREATE TABLE jos_yvcomment (LIKE jos_content)
Error: 1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax near 'LIKE jos_content)' at line 1

Have tried manually adding table with above command and get same error.

Might be related to SQL installation error received reported on other board.

Hi, this error was described earlier in this thread, see http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,165205.msg941364.html#msg941364.
BTW, current version of yvComment (1.6.5) was not tested with RC2, I'll have to make some changes...

Postby rufuz » Wed Sep 12, 2007 1:35 pm

I love the extension mainly because it has a "no frills" look and it works.

I'm not interested to play with comments, actually and in the future, I only want comments to stay there and I don't need any "exotic management" of them like posting recent posts in frontpage, reply to comments... etc. In my site commenting must be simple and immediate, I will have a forum for more complex comunication tasks.

For that reason I'm using a separate table for comments, and I really appreaciate you made this option available. But I can read from your posts this approach is "a dead end track". 

I'm just trying to guess what do you mean, and my question is if you are going to remove this option from future releases, I hope not  :-\

thx, and let me say you are doing a great work!  ;)

Hi, Ricc!

1. When I wrote about using separate table as "a dead end track", I meant, that this way is wrong as a strategic path for future development. So, the "features" of yvComment will be restricted, when site Admin decide not to "Use Content Table".
For you this is just what you want, so you may continue to use this option.

2. I know, that users really need an option to have separate table for comments (just because they want  :)), so I will continue to support it.

And thank you very much for your comment.

yvComment v.1.7 - Author Name Linkable

Postby yvolk » Fri Sep 28, 2007 7:09 am

Hello, everybody!  :D v.1.7 of yvComment is released. As always, I'm waiting for your feedback!

In this version:
1. Fixed code to work with Joomla! 1.5 RC2. Now yvComment doesn't work with older builds of Joomla!

2. Added option "Username of Guest". This user, (specified by his Username), will become Author of all comments, created by guests. Joomla! doesn't have built-in Guest user account, so you have to create such user yourself. Guest account has to be in Author group and may be disabled (to prevent logging on with this account). Setting this option is required for consistency with "general Articles" of Joomla!

3. Added option "Check guest name" ('Yes' by default) to turn on or off check: if guest's alias ("Your name" field) is part of any registered user's name.

4. Added option "Author Name Linkable". If enabled, name of the comment's author becomes a link to his (or her) Web page.
  4.1 For registered users, the URL of the link is taken from the "Web URL" field of the Contact, "Linked to User" (associated with this user). Standard Joomla! way to do this is to use "Contact Manager" in the backend: menu->Components->Contacts->Contacts.
  4.2 If you enabled guests to add comments, and you want to allow guest to add link to his (or her) Web page to the comment, you have to set "Allow guests to link to a site" option also. This link is stored in the "metadata" field of the comment.
Please note, that due to the known bug in Joomla! core (see Topic: Extending metadata of Articles (Poor implementation of content metadata saving)) if you edit existing Comment from the backend using Joomla! "Article Manager", this link would be erased. So don't use "Article Manager" in the backend to edit comments, made by guests, in conjunction with this option. We're lucky, that this bug doesn't exist for editing Comment with Joomla! Editor from frontend!

5. Changed. Captcha (if enabled) is shown for guests only.

6. Added translations:
  Danish translation (Thanks to Peter Schlüter).
  Dutch translation (Thanks to Wim Strik).
  Spanish translation (Thanks to Enrique F. Becerra).

Re: yvComment - Comments extension for Joomla! 1.5

Code: Select all

$type = JRequest::get('get');
echo $type['view'];

When the plugin is published it always returns "comment". I need this variable in my template, and after publishing the yvComment plugin it's useless.

Hi, Stian!
This problem was fixed in yvComment v.1.7
Now yvComment Plugin restores "view" and "layout" variables of JRequest (see file /www/plugins/content/yvcomment.php).

Thank you for your report!
