Hi, you mentioned three of about 30 steps  :)
...Maybe you didn't allow guests to add comments?

Hello,

have you the option that every user can choose some commented articles where he will be notified if there are a new comment?
i mean the user will be notified only if a favoured article had new comment.

Thank you

No, there is no such option.

I think, that some more general 'Joomla! content subscription extension' should be created (or existing adapted...), that would allow user to subscribe to new articles (and updates...) by: Section, Category, relation to specific Article (e.g. Comments of the article) etc.
I don't know about such extension yet  :(

Just installed yvComment on a fresh 1.5 stable install.

Installed and configured as supposed (also got it running on a RC3 site in a previous version).

Now i get this error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /home/www/components/com_yvcomment/views/comment/tmpl/default.php on line 93

Also when i installed i got a lot of errors on languages not beeing installed - it only installed the files to the languages that was allready installed on the site.

i got the same error - here's how i fixed it

on line 93 replace

Code: Select all

JDispatcher::getInstance->trigger('onPrepareContent', array (&$item, null, 0));
with

Code: Select all

JDispatcher::getInstance();
$dispatcher->trigger('onPrepareContent', array (&$item, null, 0));
then on line 199(ish) replace

Code: Select all

JDispatcher::getInstance->trigger('onAfterDisplayContent', array (&$item, null, 0));
with

Code: Select all

$dispatcher->trigger('onAfterDisplayContent', array (&$item, null, 0));
I guess this is a php version issue
The site Im working on is running off PHP: 4.4.7

I've not got further into looking at the plugin - but

Thank you, pals!

As I wrote in the Troubleshooting section of yvComment:
Please note, that I didn't test latest versions of yvComment under PHP4...
I've uploaded fixed version, 1.12.3. Is everything Ok now?

Small bug on admin side: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /home/www/components/com_yvcomment/views/list/tmpl/default.php on line 57

      $ascending = (boolean)($this->params->get('orderby_pri') == 'date');

As far as i can see is the problem.

May you describe, why do you need this, how do you plan to use such feature?

No, see this message. Do you want to implement it?

So, if we go further, you want to have:
- on one page: several articles AND comments for each article (including links/forms to add new comments for each article)
- this behaviour of yvComment should be configured to occur on this one page only (and not on the whole site).

As I understand, you'll have to create some section/category blog view for these articles.

...I think, I'll change yvComment so, that it will work correctly with multiple forms on one page.
And this 'specific' behaviour for one menu item may be hardcoded (patched) into yvComment (by yourself).
...or maybe you may propose some "universal approach", that would be used by many users?

yes thats exactly what i mean, i think it would be good overall for the extension itself to have the option to be produced more than once on a page..  since it cannot be duplicated like a module

Ability to have multiple forms on one page is implemented already (in v.1.12.4).
So, if you would find out, how to show three articles in 'article' view on one page, yvComment will show three forms...

Currently, I don't know, how to make such 'specific' behaviour (show comments and form in 'blog' view) for one menu item (this parameter should appear in the menu, not in yvComment...), this is why I wrote about a patch.

I tried to install this plugin and I'm using the 9961 build of joomla 1.5 but have MySQL v 4.122-standard.  I asked my hosting company if they could upgrade but they said they don't know when they'll do that yet but I could install my own copy... might try that but first I want to know if that's the reason I'm getting the following error message when I try to install: It said "failed to find XML setup file".  Any thoughts?

yeah I read all that already.  I wouldn't have posted if it answered my question.  :-\

should I take it that you think then that the database version is indeed the reason for this problem?

Hi, this may sound dumb, but I am brand new to Joomla and CMS systems in general. My hosting provider gave me Joomla Version 1.0.13 Stable [ Sunglow ] 21 July 2007 16:00 UTC. I assume that this doesnt work for anything less then 1.5?

Thanks

Right, raptureboi.  You could ask your hosting provider to install the newest version of joomla for you though and they probably will.  Only thing is it's so new there aren't very many extensions for it yet.  This is one of the few that are out there.  But I bet in 6 months there'll be tons.

So if i wanted to install 1.5, is it possible to do so without losing my website contents? Is there documentation on upgrading the version?

Thanks!

Here is the answer from the above cited page:
Install yvComment itself.
It is required to install both "yvComment Component" and "yvComment Plugin". Distribution package (yvComment.zip) contains both Component and Plugin zipped files inside it, so you have to extract yvCommentComponentX.XX.XXX.zip and yvCommentPluginX.XX.XXX.zip from that package and install them one by one.
Is it clear, or maybe I should explain this in other words?

Hi again! :)
I have a little problem again, this time CSS-related. Depending on where to place yvcomment (inside/below article frame) I get good and bad results. When using inside article frame the Comments (x) on the frontpage shows just perfect but the comments and form is often really wrong when browsing an article. If I use below article frame the result is on the contrary.
Can I do so I can use both the options? Or where can I change it in the CSS (and which file?)?

Thanks,
/Mika3l

No, currently it is not possible.

The best way to customize yvComment's styles is:
1. Set (Advanced) 'Use default CSS file' parameter to 'No'
2. Copy contents of 'components/com_yvcomment/assets/default.css' file to your template's CSS and play with it...

yvComment v.1.12 released - support for content plugins

Posted: Mon Jan 28, 2008 3:49 pm
by yvolk
What's new in yvComment v.1.12.5:

1. Added option "Execute content plugins". Enabling this option allows you to use (in theory, all) content plugins with yvComment, just like for Articles. This option is disabled ('No') by default to prevent possible incompatibility with content plugins. This option was successfully tested with these plugins:
  • 'Avatar/Gravatar 1.05' (adding author's avatars to comments).
  • Joomla! core content plugins: Content - Email Cloaking, GeSHi.
  • yvBBCode and yvSmiley. Please note, that these two extensions work faster, when they are not used as Content plugins, but are configured to replace text of the whole page. So, I recommend to configure yvBBCode and yvSmiley not to "Enable Smileys for the text of Articles" (this means 'don't act as content plugin').
2. Added translations:
  • Italian (Thanks to Sergio De Falco aka SGr33n).
  • Hungarian (Thanks to Andor Szathmári).
  • Chinese (Thanks to baijianpeng).
