        i would also love to see Joomla-native commenting support. Like for example captcha became.
        The site administartor can install additional commenting systems which he likes best. And every 3rd party extension developers can integrate it in their extesions.
        So also the look-and-feel stays the same on the whole site.

        Commenting is missing feature of Joomla. That's why we are using wordpress for many cms/blog projects

        I think that the "Commenting" will be other extension's base.
        This is conducive to the unified use and management of the comment on the content.

        currently K2 component is providing this functionality. You can comment on any article. Its content structure is better than joomla.

        Shouldn't be limited to Content (Articles) all components should be able to use comments the same counts for voting and linkback.

        Making it a lot easier to manage, instead of having to go into each component to review/edit/delete.

        The only info needed to support several components is the extension id and "content id" (article, image, video, post.. id).

        i think comment system is the important section of a CMS, i don't know why joomla has not this feature built in !
        See Drupal, Wordpress etc.. all CMS has this facility.
        hope to be add this option for the next version.

        A clean native comment component with multilanguage capabilities.... Elementary, my dear Watson

        Third party solutions don't seem to have the quality and don't meet the release timelines. Its essential that it be part of Joomla. It will save a lot of hassles and pain. I strongly recommend having it as part of the core.

        Geshi is not only used as a content editor but also powers the template editing features of com_templates. And voting is an incredibly small feature.

        You are right about banners and there have been discussions before whether to keep it or not. Thus far it was always kept but no guarantees that it won't meet the fate of pools sometime in the future.

      • Jan KrohnJan Krohn commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        But then most websites don't need Geshi, or banners, or content voting, which all is also part of the core (which I'm very pleased of by the way, so I don't have to crawl for updates on these myself).

        So the argument that some websites don't need comments is not very strong, especially since comments are nowadays definitely more popular than the above mentioned features.

        it is note good to have it in core. There is good 3rd party solutions about comment. Because every website doesn't need to use it.

        For me thw web 2.0 is past gone, all hail the social 3.0... comments are not enough, people prefer to comment into their own social circles, instead on an unknown blog/site, we need to be able for our site visitors to comment our site with their friends, and yet, be able to loyalize them, comments are needed, indeed, but not enough, we need them to be cross-shared with social sites, facebook and twitter at least, disqus or intensedebate is the way to go for me, but our communities can't be forgot... kudos for CB, jomsocial, and the rest ;)

        With avatar, nothing big. Just adding the possibilliy to add an avatar to your profile that will appear in the new comment system :)

        @ABTOP yes there are some "okay" once out there. But they all rely on their own database tables making it hard to migrate extension. Plus if devs know where to find the comment data it will open up for new types of intererting uses.

        And as Александр Субботин says, it can be build to facilitate 3rd-party extensions hooking into it.

        @ CraZy675 just because "many" don't need it, doen't mean it shouldn't be a core feature.

      • ABTOPABTOP commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        No need to include this into the core. Current 3rd party solutions do a fine job
