Item736: Comment plugin doesn't know about Compare Revisions

Priority: Normal
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.0.1
Target Release: patch
Applies To: Extension
Component: CommentPlugin
Reported By: TimotheLitt
Waiting For: Main.KennethLavrsen
Last Change By: KennethLavrsen
CommentPlugin incorrectly allows comment submission in a CompareRevisionsPlugin display.

Needs a better mechanism, but it's easy to extend the current kludge:

(Patch against TWiki, but foswiki code is identical)

Good catch

even if the code warns about nasty hacks etc it works for the other modes and why not make Comment aware of another important plugin

I will take this one when I am back in Denmark in 24 hours
