Anonymous comment bug has been fixed !

About: tagroom of items tagged with $bug,comments

The bug where an anonymous commenter would loose data if they put in double quotes has been fixed.  It was in the javascript in /permalink/index.php where

myHidden     += '<input type="hidden" name="comment" value="' + comment + '" />';

You can see where that might be a problme according to nesting quotes. Consequently i inserted a repace for quotes with the character encoding $#34;  .

Sorry to all the anonymous commenters who got their comments truncated ... especially Chris Mecham on 3185 .  Now Chris, what were you saying?

Seth says
this is easy to duplicate:
1) sign out so that your are anonymous
2) make a comment and include a quote
Everything past the quote is trunkated

Example:

Seth says
And 'single' and "double" and "unbalanced quotes should work!

Seth says
And "double" and 'singel' and "unbalanced quotes should work if you are not anonymous!
