2. Add this line to your theme.html between <head> and </head>:

<script type="text/javascript" src="<{$xoops_url}>/modules/news/js/jquery-1.2.6.min.js"></script>

3. edit modules/news/templates/news_article.hml and replace:

<div style="text-align: center; padding: 3px; margin:3px;"


document).ready(function() { 
get("comment_new.php?com_itemid=<{$story.id}>", function(data){ 
'#quickcomment').append(data.substring(data.indexOf("<form name='commentform'"),data.indexOf("<!-- End Form Vaidation JavaScript //-->"))); 

div id="quickcomment" style="text-align: center; padding: 3px; margin:3px;"><{$lang_notice}></div>
