Howdy :)
I've been using rscomments so far - and I'm not amused. Now I would like to change to your component, so here are my questions:

- can I import my comments from rscomments into your component?
- do I need to buy one license for each domain?

Thanks for your help!

Yes you can import! You'll need to match the table fields to the one in compojoom comment -> but we have a interface for this -> you just select the fields and click import.

No, you don#t have to buy a license for each domain. You can install it on as many domains you wish, but we generally provide support only for 1 domain. (however I don't track this, so it is on a good faith. Haven't turned any question down so far :))

Cheers,
Daniel

Thanks for your reply - here's more:

"You'll need to match the table fields":

- how do I know what to match to what in the first place?
- how do I do that (screenshot?)

You'll need to go to the import view.
and there you will see things such as -> component table -> a list with all tables from your db and you will need to find the rs table there.

Once you do, we will read all the fields from the rs table and for id you will have to select the field that holds the id, the title, the actual comment, votes etc.

Most of the time the fields are named like: id, component, contentid, name, ip ... so it is really easy to figure out which field holds what information.

Regards,
Daniel

Thanks a lot, Daniel :)

I'll give it a shot. As I'm migrating from 1.5.25 to 2.5.??? I presume it is best to install your component first, right?

Cheers,

Here is a screenshot of the import:

Yes, I would advise to install ccomment on 1.5 -> migrate the comments. And then on joomla 2.5 -> just copy the tables to the 2.5 installation and install ccomment there. It should pick the comments from the tables.

Daniel

Hello Daniel :)

I've now installed the component, but the import is way above my pay grade. Some fields seem obvious, others I can only guess and - the preview doesn't show a thing.

Disturbingly, the import screen doesn't offer rscomments as a component in "Commented component value (required)"

What now?

.s

some more:

the problem has evolved :)

- I re-logged in
- did my guesswork again
- started the import
- and got some good results

Now there are flaws:

- the date is consequently set to "1999-11-30 01:00:00" thought the field "date" seemed simple enough to identify ;)

- all the comments of the former component are still display though I deactivated the component

.s

and further development:

- simply uninstalled rscomments - now all seems to be fine apart from the date

Hm, I have the strange feeling that rscomments is not saving the date in the MySql format. Can you send me a copy of rscomments to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. I'll have a look and let you know what modification you need to do.
