[resolved] Error when try to leave comment (only when not logged in) (3 posts)

    When I try to leave a comment on my blog I get an error that says:

    error:please fill required fields (name, email)

    I did fill in Name and E-mail and I also haven't checked the box "Only logged in users" under Discussion. Does anyone has an idea what the problem is?

    I attached the comments.php ... maybe the problem is somewhere within this file

    <?php
    global $wpdb;
    
    $sql = "SELECT DISTINCT ID, post_title, post_password, comment_ID,
    comment_post_ID, comment_author, comment_date_gmt, comment_approved,
    comment_type,comment_author_url,
    SUBSTRING(comment_content,1,50) AS com_excerpt
    FROM $wpdb->comments
    LEFT OUTER JOIN $wpdb->posts ON ($wpdb->comments.comment_post_ID =
    $wpdb->posts.ID)
    WHERE comment_approved = '1' AND comment_type = '' AND
    post_password = ''
    ORDER BY comment_date_gmt DESC LIMIT 5";
    
    $comments = $wpdb->get_results($sql);
    $output = $pre_HTML;
    
    foreach ($comments as $comment) {
    $output .= "\n
    <li>"."<a href=\"" . get_permalink($comment->ID) .
    "#comment-" . $comment->comment_ID . "\" title=\"on " .
    $comment->post_title . "\">" .strip_tags($comment->comment_author)
    .": " . strip_tags($comment->com_excerpt)
    ."...</a></li>
    
    ";
    }
    
    $output .= $post_HTML;
    
    echo $output; ?>

    Thanks!!

    What's the address to your blog?

    Fixed it! I swooped the comment.php with the default wordpress comment.php and it works. Now I just have to style it a little bit.

    Thanks though Richard!
