Comments plugin is not available right now because of remote code execution vulnerability To be fixed.

Comments is a simple comment system/Guestbook based on jQuery and Ajax. It requires jQuery and tinymce plugins, both distributed with core CMSimple XH. It includes an authorization system based on a list of registrated emails with 3 levels of user authorisation: 

  1. admin - Site administrator maintains registrated user list
  2. user - registration under creation of the first comment .
  3. user & admin - registration under creation of the first comment with administrator accept.

Comments can be also used without any user registration.

It includes possibility of email notification of all registrated users and/or site admininstrator when a new comment is created, and administrator functionality to delete junk comments and blacklist undesirable users.


1. License




2. Installation 

Comments plugin requires jQuery plugin and tinymce editor (included in  core distribution package version 1.4.1 and higher).

Download and uncompress comments_XH.zip 
Upload the entire comments directory to  your "plugins" directory. 

3. Configuration

To activate the Comments plugin insert {{{comments("Group name"[,"Id"]);}} }  eg {{{comments("comments");}} }. Remember there should be no space between brackets. Group_name can be anything, but must be different if you use different comments on diferent pages. Id is optional.

There may only be one call to Comments plugin per page.


Comments can be used without any kind of security, but it will probably take a short time until the spam comments will be a problem. To prevent this, Comments plugin has a different levels of security

  1. admin = an administtrator maintained list of users emails, ie. only users with registered emails can post comments.
  2. user = Users can register the first time they write a comment by activating a link supplied in registration e-mail sent from the plugin.
  3. user+admin=In the same way as in as in paragraph 2, but registration requires that administrator accepts user. After the user accepts registration the administrator will receive an email with all user information, ie. name, email and comments content. Administrator can accept user directly from the email (no need to login).

In cases 2 and 3 the comment is first visible after finished registration.


Optional Comments plugin can send an email notification to all registrated users each time a new comment is posted.

Optionnal Comments plugin can send an email notification to site administrator each time a new comment is posted.

Maintenance of authorized users and deleting junk comments.

In plugin administration you can maintain user list (add, edit and remove),  delete junk comments and blacklist unwanted users.
