I tried to help a friend of my to install joomlacomment on his site, but i cant get it to work. I think the installation when well, but det comments doesent appear at all.
Is there some secret tips on how to make them appear?
I'm afraid I have the same problem. Does the component use a particular 'user postion' to display, or is it hooked to the article?
Also, I did get some warnings on my install, perhaps this has something to do with it? The component is there, and configurable, but I got the following warnings on install
There was a problem with your installation

The warning are telling you that you don't have the necessary write permission on your system to move the files.
Find the files in the zip package and move them with your ftp programm to the directories in the error message.
theseal can I get super admin access to your web site?
Thanks Daniel, that seems to have done the trick. Just for your information though...the directories in question had all the necessary rights...so am not sure if there's an installation issue or not, but it's up and running...and I appreciate it.
Well, I'm close but no cigar yet. After copying the files you suggested, I got the link to post a comment. When I do though, the comment appears as I would expect, but the 'editor box' never goes away? It's almost like the 'post comment' is being invoked again, or not dismissed when the comment is posted. I'll attach a screen grab.
ps: I was using the RSD module for remote posting via moveabletype api, and that throws an error when trying to post a comment. I just disabled that plugin so that I can get comments working, but thought you should know,
Poorly worded perhaps, but if you look at the screen grab (couple of posts ago), what I mean is that the comment editing box remains open at the bottom of the article, and the only way I can get it gone is to delete the article? Do you mean that the large editing window stays open after the comment has been submitted?
Let me try what Jen suggested, maybe if I logout the edit box will disappear. In general however, once I make a comment on a post...I'm done, and would prefer to edit box to disappear until I invoked it again...but perhaps that is just me.
