Joomla Comment is appearing on every page (except the home page). It seems like a pretty good program, but enough is enough! My plan is to have a menu choice that opens up a page with only joomla comment on it - and none the rest of the pages would have joomla comment. I am assuming I didn't set it up right (this is the first component I've set up). Any suggestions? What if I wanted it to appear on the home page and no where else?

:huh:

You have to choose what sections and categories you wish for joomlacomment to appear.

Thanks for the hot tip. And fast response - 7 minutes!

Just in case anybody else has the same problem here's how I fixed it.

1. Created a section called "comments" and a category called "comments".

2. Created an article called "comments page" - selected "comments" for category and section.

3. Created a menu item called "leave a comment". Under "menu item type" I selected "article layout". Under "parameters basic" I selected the article that I just created, called "comments page".

4. Under "components" I selected "!joomlacomment" then "other component settings". Under "exclude/include" I selected "include". Under "exclude/include categories" and "exclude/include sections" I selected "comments".

Not exactly intuitive, but it worked!
