WP1.5Final – submit comment button fails Mac OS X

  • A platform problem, the error is ONLY on Mac OS X: Safari or Firefox: On either browser the “Add my comment” button produces the (incorrect) error “Error: please fill the required fields (name, email).”

    IE 5.2 Mac and IE6/PC work fine.

    This error has been seen since at least the WP1.5 Feb 06 nightly. I’ve just not reported until I had done the 1.5Final upgrade

    Any workarounds or suggestions much appreciated.

    What theme? And what’s the URL of your blog?

    Macmax – does the add comment work for you on Safari/Firefox? If so, that tells me the problem must be in my config.

    Theme is manji2. To see if theme-dependent, I also tested with theme=default ==> same result on Safari & Firefox.

    Blog URL is http://seekerblog.com

    Khaled answered my query re: Manji2 yesterday as “The buttons don’t work on mac IE, or safari. This is something I’ve tried to rectify but my mac friends haven’t found a solution. I’m told that a new version of safari is being prepped soon that should be able to deal with the javascript.”

    Yeah, the submit button works for me when using Safari (testuser8). Make sure that you have javascript enabled in Safari (Preferences/Security).

    >submit button works for me when using Safari (testuser8).

    Thanks heaps, mate – has to be my config. What is testuser8?

    >Make sure that you have javascript enabled in Safari

    Yes, can’t operate w/o javascript. I’m running latest OS, latest javascript – I’ll bet my glitch is related to additional .js added to support OmniOutliner DHTL.

    Both Firefox and Safari will ‘see’ the same .js environment, but IE will not.

    That’s the name I posted the comment as. ^_-

    After more testing, I’m a bit confused. By switching to Classic or Kubrick themes I eliminate customization of Manji w/ additional javascript, and am running a “stock 1.5Final”. Yet, all themes fail the same way in Safari – “Error: please fill the required fields (name, email).”

    In fact the Classic or Kubrick themes don’t even have a place for user to enter name/email.

    If I disable the name/email comment reqt, everything works. Which I will do until I figure this out.

    Thanks, Steve

    Download WP v1.5 again, and delete comments.php for the classic and default themes, then upload the new copies of comments.php from the fresh download.

    you wouldnt be running an old version of Spaminator or some other antispam would you?

    I had this yesterday whilst mucking about with my theme and it seems the older version of Spaminator I was running would reject any comments i tried to make whilst logged in as admin because it wasnt getting the user/email details. However when I was not logged in it was fine.

    Might not help.

    Thanks – I executed your steps, then tested with ‘default’ theme (and also the Manji2 theme). I get the same results – given that commenter is required to enter name and email. Same as before.

    BTW, it seems to me there is a disconnect between the classic, default themes and the Dashboard. The admin has the option of required name/email entry, but the comment form has no text fields for name/email.

    Macmanx, re:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic.php?id=26413#post-148582

    that doesn’t seem relevant if I’m not totally lost. Wasn’t that problem associated with comment registration requirment? I don’t use that, was only trying to use name & email.
