tested on Yii 1.1.8


You must create table

  `owner_name` varchar(50) NOT NULL,
  `owner_id` int(12) NOT NULL,
  `comment_id` int(12) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,
  `parent_comment_id` int(12) DEFAULT NULL,
  `creator_id` int(12) DEFAULT NULL,
  `user_name` varchar(128) DEFAULT NULL,
  `user_email` varchar(128) DEFAULT NULL,
  `comment_text` text,
  `create_time` int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
  `update_time` int(11) DEFAULT NULL,
  `status` int(1) NOT NULL DEFAULT '0',
  PRIMARY KEY (`comment_id`),
  KEY `owner_name` (`owner_name`,`owner_id`)

To add a comment to the model, you need to perform two steps. First step - configure the module in app config:

        //you may override default config for all connecting models
        'defaultModelConfig' => array(
            //only registered users can post comments
            'registeredOnly' => false,
            'useCaptcha' => false,
            //allow comment tree
            'allowSubcommenting' => true,
            //display comments after moderation
            'premoderate' => false,
            //action for postig comment
            'postCommentAction' => 'comments/comment/postComment',
            //super user condition(display comment list in admin view and automoderate comments)
            //order direction for comments
        //the models for commenting
            //model with individual settings
                //config for create link to view model page(page with comments)
            //model with default settings
        //config for user models, which is used in application

Second step - display ECommentListWidget in view for displaying commentable models

$this->widget('comments.widgets.ECommentsListWidget', array(
    'model' => $model,
