RSEvents! RSComments! integration

The users interaction in the web 2.0 era represents a key factor for your website success.
The social element becomes even more important when you own an event website and you need to allow users to interact with each other through comments.

Therefore, having a comment system for your Joomla! event based website is not something that should be overlooked.

An easy way to achieve this is to use RSEvents!, as a Joomla! event extension together with RSComments!, as a Joomla! comment extension.

How to use RSEvents! with RSComments! ?

We will show you below how to configure RSEvents! in order to use RSComments! as a comment system for events.

Step 1:

In the Joomla! administrator panel, head to Components >> RSEvents! >> Settings >> Events and select RSComments! as the default Joomla! comment extension.

RSEvents! settings tab - enable comments

Step 2:

Now, you’ll only need to set to “Yes” the option that allows users to comment, each time you’ll create a new event with RSEvents!

Unfortunately there is no configuration option for this.
You will have to edit the components/com_rsevents/helpers/theme.php

RSEvents won\\'t work with RSComments

I have followed exactly the mentioned steps and still no comment fields in my event's detail page. It only works fine with normal Joomla sections and categories.
