  • great plugin 🙂

    I have a small request / issue..
    In WP 3x you can define your fields in comment_form($args);

    I tried the plugin on a page where I removed the ‘url’ in $fields.
    This returns a script error for the plugin IN IE6 at the validation for the required fields / empty data.

    I predict developers will be using the WP 3x comment functionality alot to extend the name/email/url/comment normalities…

    Is there a way you can extend your plugin to validate data only on fields filtered by the ‘comment_form_default_fields’ ?!?

    Best regards \Emil

    Hi Emil

    The plugin itself does 1 validation: it checks if the comment field is not empty prior submitting the form. This is done via jQuery, see ‘js/’ lines 78 – 83.

    All other validations are done by WordPress, the plugin just returns the built-in messages, see ‘lib/Class.PTM_AJAXCommentsFront.php’. URL is never required anyway, there is no validation for that field.

    What is the exact error you are getting?

    Then again, IE6? C’mon, it’s 2011. 🙂

    The error only occurs when email, name or url is not entered (wp set to email and name is required).
    The error does not occur when only Comment is empty. (the “you need to enter a comment” is displayed correctly).

    The error is:
    ‘1.WholeText’ is null or not an object

    As I saw (at line 115) ‘WholeText’ inside your file I assumed it was a check on your part.

    IE6 is for people like me, who has to conform to ancient big companies 🙂

    When disabeling “Comment author must fill out name and e-mail”, and submitting a comment with only email and comment-text (empty name), the plugin does not break in IE6

    when changing line 115 to
    _error = “Name and Email must be entered!”;
    it works.

    Hi Emil,

    thanks for diggin’ into this. 🙂

    Can you have a look what the XMLHttpRequest.responseText is? (insert alert(XMLHttpRequest.responseText); at line 114 for ex.)

    If ”1.WholeText’ is null or not an object’ then WP is returning not a standard error (like wp_die()). I’m extracting the first paragraph on line 114, so, that one is missing thus getting NULL.

    Btw, Im using IETester and in a ie6 session with debugbar and companion.js

    The alertbox (same as displayed when running it via firefox/firebug), so I guess its how IE interprents the return message thats the issue.. dunno.

    Reading up on it would seem that if WP is relying on XMLHttpRequest and hasent made a ActiveXObject parser this is the culprint.

    A maby solution, however this is out of scope for a plugin imho 🙂

    Hey Emil,

    I guess its how IE interprents the return message thats the issue

    Same guess here as the response actually looks good.

    However, I think I’m not going to fiddle around to support IE6 🙂

    Thanks again for digging into this!

    Hi Pete, I have a question, if someone posts a comment, do not automatically appear in the list? I mean you have to refresh the page to appear?


    No. It probably means that you didn’t add the callback function name in the plugin settings. Any URL?

    I added the callback function name in the plugin settings.
    The problem is that when I write a comment and I add it, it appears that the comment was added, but I can see it only after giving refresh the page.

    Solved the problem,I forgot to add <h3 id=”respond”>

    Nice, glad you solved it.
