  • You must download and install the plugin Avatar from Jcomments website.

Is it possible to customize the colors of the template ?

Yes it's possible. You must edit the file "components/com_jcomments/tpl/JoomSpirit_theme/style.css"

You can change the green background color of Header and titles and the color of links, line 16 to 34.

Of course, you can change others code if you have enough CSS knowledge but I can"t help you for any customization. Thank you for your comprehension.
