Product: Comment System + Reviews Bubble

Comments made by website users are very important in the development of a web project, they allow the website to gather feedback which helps webmasters to improve it and reach more users. The means with which the comments are collected could be diverse: from tweets, entries in social networks or directly from the website content that triggered the comments.

Our Dreamweaver extension focuses on that last option. "Comment System + Reviews Bubble" is a tool to publish the comments among the same content that generates them. This extension is formed by uniting two extensions distributed independently, "Comment System" and "Reviews Bubble". This 2 in 1 package represents a 10% discount compared to separate purchases of these two products. You save money and time.

Among the main features are:

  • The comments are displayed on the same page with the comment submission form and the content that triggered them.
  • The comment submission form has an embedded captcha system to prevent spam.
  • Comment Administration System allows you to delete the comments that do not follow the website basic policies.
  • The current total number of comments is associated with the actual page with comments. This is important as it allows the user to see the content relevance - measured in this case by the amount of user comments - without visiting the actual comment page.


  • Adobe Dreamweaver, MX or later versions (Dreamweaver MX, MX 2004, DW 8, CS3, CS4, CS5, CS6, CC,...).
  • The server where the webpage is hosted must support PHP.

Help & FAQ & Videos

Basic Installation

"Comment System + Reviews Bubble" can be installed by executing the CommentsBubbleReviews.mxp file or using the "Adobe Extension Manager" software.

Once installed the extension can be accessed from "Commands > Comment System". This module includes the comment form and the administration panel. Our extension also offers the possibility to associate the number of comments to a link to the page itself; this is achieved by "Reviews Bubble" that can be inserted from "Insert > Reviews Bubble" menu or through the "Reviews Bubble" option in the Common Tab from the Insertion Bar.

Development Notes

Use of the Comment System

To use the Comment System extension, your Dreamweaver-based website must be configured and the webpage where you wish to insert a Comment System must be saved.

Click on the menu option “Comment System” (as explained under “Installation”). A setup window will open up, which will allow to prepare the Comment System to be inserted in the website.

If your website already has a Comment System on any of its pages, a checkbox will appear that will allow to use the same copy of the Comment System.

Note: If you insert a new copy of the extension in your website, the one you used before will be overwritten and all previous setup data will be lost.

Comment Box Width: a whole number, that defines the width of the comment submission form, as well as the width of the box that will contain the comments on the webpage.

Administration password: select a  password that you will use to enter the comment admin system.

Send me notification emails: this option must be selected if you wish to be notified of each of the comments entered in your webpages. The notification email will contain the submitted comment as well as the webpage address where the comment was entered.

Insert your email: enter here the email address where you want the notifications to be sent.  

I use a SMTP email server:  select this option if the webserver where your website is hosted uses a SMTP server for sending emails.

SMTP email server address:  enter the location of your SMTP server.

Anonymous: mark this option if your SMTP  server does not require authentication.

User: user name for authentication at the SMTP server (this field is only mandatory if your SMTP server requires authentication).

Password: password for authentication at the SMTP server (this field is only mandatory if your SMTP server requires authentication).

Note:  if you are not sure of your email server parameters, please contact your hosting provider before adding a Comment System to your page.

A new folder – TE_CommentSystem -  will be automatically created at the root of your website once you insert a Comment System. This new folder will contain all the necessary code for Comment System's correct functioning. It will also contain a folder named “db” (this folder must have writing permission), meant for the comment storage,   and a folder named “admin”, with the code necessary for the administration of the comment system.

Note: because the “db” folder will have writing permission for creating a file for each webpage where a comment is added, each of these files will contain the comments submitted in the corresponding webpage.

To access the system admin of the comments please enter the following address:

( depends on the name of your website)

The first thing you have to do when you wish to manage comments on your website is enter the password that you have selected in the setup window.

How to manage comments

To manage the comments entered in the pages of your website, you must access the administration page:

( depends on the name of your website)

Introduce the password that you selected in the setup window.

Once inside Admin, you can see on the left the list with all the pages that contain comments.

Once you select the page on the left, the comments of this webpage will be shown in the column on the right.

There is a button for elimination of each comment that belongs to a webpage. To delete a comment, simply click on that button, and after a confirmation dialogue, the comment will be eliminated.

To leave the Comment Admin, press Logout in the upper right corner.
