When social is pulling in tweets to create comments, they appear to create "invisible" comments as of the upgrade to 3.6 or 3.6.1 (not sure which).
Eg, I have two comments (each from a separate tweet on a different article) which should show up as pending comments for approval.
In the comments section, it says Pending (2), but when I click on the Pending, it just shows the top and bottom header bars (Author, Comment, In Response To) with no comments between them.
It also doesn't display the "No comments found" between them, like it would usually if there were no comments.
So it knows there are 2 comments, but isn't displaying them for approval / deletion.
When I view the source, there's data there which looks like the comments, eg (sanitised):
<tr id='comment-1210' class='social-twitter even thread-even depth-1 unapproved'><th scope="row" class="check-column"> <label class="screen-reader-text" for="cb-select-1210">Select comment</label> <input id="cb-select-1210" type="checkbox" name="delete_comments" value="1210" /> </th><td class='author column-author'><strong><img alt="" src="https://si0.twimg.com/profile_images/xxxxxxxxxx/TwitterProfile_normal.jpg" class="avatar avatar-32 photo social-twitter" height="32" width="32" /> username</strong><br /><a title='https://twitter.com/username' href='https://twitter.com/username'>https://twitter.com/username</a><br /><a href='mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org'>email@example.com</a><br /><a href="edit-comments.php?s=184.108.40.206&mode=detail">220.127.116.11</a></td><td class='comment column-comment'><div class="submitted-on">Submitted on <a href="http://www.mydomain.com/index.php/2013/10/05/blog-post-title/#comment-1210">2013/10/05 at 23:54</a></div><p>Comment in tweet <a href="http://t.co/xxxxxxxxxx" rel="nofollow" class="comment-link">http://t.co/xxxxxxxxxx</a></p> <div id="inline-1210" class="hidden"> <textarea class="comment" rows="1" cols="1">Comment in Tweet http://t.co/xxxxxxxxxx</textarea> <div class="author-email">firstname.lastname@example.org</div> <div class="author">username</div> <div class="author-url">https://twitter.com/username</div> <div class="comment_status">0</div> </div>
Anyone else seen this, or got any idea on how to fix?
Or even a pointer if it's a social issue with newer WordPress, or new WordPress issue with older comment format?
