Can't comment for 10 seconds? (10 posts)

    I am trying to post a comment to my own post, but I keep getting this message that states "Sorry, you can only post a new comment once every 10 seconds. Slow down cowboy."

    I started getting the message last night. So I waited a while. Still got the message. So I just logged off.

    I tried again today and am getting the same message. How do I stop the insanity?

    Look in wp-comments-post.php, which is where the message is originating from (in 1.5, this will be wp-includes/functions-post.php).

    Let us know what the code looks like for that portion.

    Comments took for me. Weird.

    Perhaps this is an issue with your browser? Try clearing your cookies (or at least any related to your site), and see if that takes care of it.

    I have the exact problem. I have cleaned the cookies, but still get the same message "you cannot post, you have to wait 10 seconds etc."
    Any ideas?

    Clear your browser cache as well as cookies.

    Where do you actually set the time limit for the comments?

  9. It's a hardcoded value. For WP 1.2, look in wp-comments-post.php.

    I've cleared my cache and Cookies in both Firefox and IE 6. Still get the "Slow down, cowboy" error. I even tried commenting out the section of wp-comments-post.php. Grrr.
