Your Guide to Using RokComments for Joomla
RokComments is a complete rewrite of the ever-popular RokIntenseDebate plugin. We have added support for Disqus and JS-Kit, as well as the original IntenseDebate support. RokComments can be enabled via menu item, Joomla category, or even a RokComments editor button for complete control.
RokComments has the following requirements in order to operate:
NOTE: Internet Explorer 11+ and Edge are supported, but versions 8, 9, and 10 are no longer supported by Microsoft and while they may work, are not recommended.
NOTICE: RokComments requires Joomla SEF to be turned on for this plugin to function properly, and interact reliably with these comment systems. This is due to the comments being associated with the URL, and non-SEF URLs with and in them are truncated by these systems.
