No feedback given to commenter when "Name" field empty
|Reported by:||WK1||Owned by:|
On my installation, name and email are not required to post a comment. I must approve every comment before it appears. If a user chooses to give their name anyway, then after they post their comment, they get a screen that says "Blah says:" and below that "Your comment is awaiting moderation." This is expected behavior.
However, if the user does not give their name, then they do not get any sort of confirmation that their comment was sent. It is sent successfully, but the user should have confirmation, otherwise they will likely try more than once before giving up in frustration.
I have tested this bug using Firefox 3.0, with and without JS enabled, and Internet Explorer 6.
