Item11447: CommentPlugin "noform" style examples don't work with new plugin

Priority: Normal
Current State: Closed

The last two noform examples in CommentPluginExamples don't work on the new version of the plugin. The examples still use the POST to the save script for their implementation.

I have one fix working - I think that there are probably a couple.

Just changing as a post to rest ran into issues with the topic= parameter prompted in the form. It's validated early in the rest script before the handler gets control. If it's not right, fully qualified with a web, the rest scripts throws a 400 error.

In order to move user input away from the topic= parameter so it's not user entered:
  • Added a comment_target field consistent with the other comment_ variables.
  • Rest handler validates comment_target and overrides the web and topic using it.
  • change form to post to rest/CommentPlugin/comment, send topic="%BASEWEB%.%BASETOPIC%", and use comment_target for user input.

Another solution would be to use javascript to validate the user input so that topic= is always valid to prevent rest failures.

I like that. JS is the right approach IMHO.

The comment_target option has been added to the examples and they are all working on 1.1 using the plugin I release to Extensions/Testing.

Cool. You have control.
