Post A Comment Not Working

Greetings,

I've just installed version 1.3.8-1sr3 (as a new installation) and everything seems to have gone well. However, when I post a comment to a story the comment doesn't show up...niether if logged on as a normal user or as admin. :-( I've check the logs, but nothing relevant there. I get no error messages. I've checked FAQ's, forums, and mailing list archives without luck.

Any suggestions?

Thanks much!

Chris Fischer

Yeah, sorry, that was a bug in the sr3 update. Please download the 1.3.8-1sr3 upgrade tarball and replace your comment.php with the version from the upgrade tarball.

bye, Dirk

Hi Dirk,

I did download the latest version tarball "geeklog-1.3.8-1sr3.tar.gz". It's the only tarball I could find for 1.3.8-1sr3. If this is the "upgrade tarball" you refer to, then this is the one I installed originally where the "post a comment" doesn't work. If not, then I don't see where to download it.

Thanks,

Chris Fischer

What I meant is that I fixed the problem in all three tarballs (the one for the full install and the two upgrade archives). Since you've already downloaded the (faulty) full tarball, instead of downloading it again (to get the fixed version) you could also download the 1.3.8-1sr3 upgrade tarball (which is much smaller) and take the (fixed) comment.php from there.

Of course, if bandwidth is not a problem, just go ahead and download the full tarball again.

bye, Dirk

Thanks Dirk,

I've redownloaded the tarball and installed the fixed 'comment.php' file, which fixed the problem. :-)

Chris Fischer
