Need free comment form

Post by Kerrith » Fri Jul 12, 2019 9:09 pm

I'm changing one of our webs from ExpressionsWeb4 to Joomla. I need a free comment form at the bottom of each page of a free tutorial for veterans. The comment form should not require registration or an email address and I should receive email notification of a comment—when I receive a notification email it has a link that takes me to the htmlcommentbox website that has the text of the comment and the option to accept or decline the comment.
Thanks, Kerry

See https://extensions.joomla.org/category/ ... -comments/

Select one(s) that are "free". Good luck.

There are dozens of free extensions but I haven't had luck getting the "Demo" buttons to work on most of them. I was hoping someone could recommend a comment form they use, perhaps the URL to a Joomla web page that has a comment form?

I forgot to add another main feature I need. The comment form needs to work in HTML pages and with Joomla. The reason is: Our Expression Web pages all use the htmlcommentbox script that apparently won't work with our new Joomla web site.

Does HTMLCommentsBox work with Joomla?

Does HTMLCommentsBox work with Joomla?

If not, is there a free comment form that does not require registration or an email address to submit a comment, an extension that works with both HTML websites and with Joomla. It also must be responsive.
Thanks, Kerry

I suppose HTMLCOmmentsBox you mention would have a way to embed into any website (CMS type or static HTML site). It would be done usually with a snippet of code - such as javascript, iframe or maybe even a snippet of PHP.

You could easily insert that into a Custom module, and place the module whereever you need it in your page(s). I would be surprised if this one didn't require as a condition of posting a comment, an email address at the very minimum.

Can you post a couple of examples where the demos are not working? Since they are free, why not just download, install and evaluate on your own site (or a test copy of the site).

Thank you, with most of the free ones the commenter must enter their email address to send.

I'm hoping someone can confirm your supposition and offer a few tips to a newbie on how to install it.

One of the features I like about it that commenters don't have to register or even enter an email address and, I get an email whenever someone make a comment.

Earlier I used JComments, but now I use a fork of JComments and it mails me when a new comment is posted or changed. The fork is adapted to PHP 7:
