CommentPlugin does not work with default text set

Since 1.1.4 CommentPlugin does not render the comment box and button if a default text is set, like this: (% removed to prevent mis-targeted comments.)
 COMMENT{default="enter text here"}%


enter text here

This is fixed in the trunk version of CommentPlugin.

-- GeorgeClark - 15 Jan 2012

Do I have to replace the whole plugin or can I just patch one file to get a quick fix?

-- MichaelLorenzen - 15 Jan 2012

The trunk version has been completely rewritten It's a great improvement - internally uses a registered tag handler instead of topic scraping, and comments using a rest handler instead of save, which permits anonymous commenting if desired.. There are a couple of things still left to be done - mainly, the strikeone javascript validation is not implemented.

I'll release this to Extensions/Testing.CommentPlugin a bit later today if you want to try the new version.

-- GeorgeClark - 15 Jan 2012

I think this is the right place to look at: ?

-- MichaelLorenzen - 16 Jan 2012

Yes, Sorry for the delay - I tripped over a couple of other issues in the new version. One I'm still working on are the last two examples on CommentPluginExamples. These use a custom form and submit the comment by posting to the save script. This technique no longer works, the new plugin needs a fix and the examples (and any home grown version) need to be reworked.

Finally, since the new plugin uses a rest handler, it's important to verify that you have protected the rest script as requiring login, or it can be possible to post comments anonymously.

-- GeorgeClark - 16 Jan 2012

Version 2.0.0 has been posted to Extensions/Testing.CommentPlugin Test carefully as this is a redesigned version of the plugin. Note other warnings in the extension topic.

-- GeorgeClark - 17 Jan 2012

I installed the testing CommentPlugin, until now everything seems ok. I'll add a new task, if I find anything unusal.

-- MichaelLorenzen - 17 Jan 2012

Why was this marked as waiting for me? Removed my name, and changed status to Confirmed.

-- CrawfordCurrie - 19 Jan 2012

Because you are listed as author of CommentPlugin

-- MichaelLorenzen - 19 Jan 2012

This task can go to Waiting for Release - the issue with default text is resolved in the new version. See Item11459 for continued discussion of the interoperation issue with WorkflowPlugin
