#10084 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

Reply to (author) does not display with comment_form_title

Reported by: bobjones Owned by: westi
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.7.1
Component: Comments Keywords:
Focuses: Cc:


Value of replytocom not being passed to comment_form_title function. As a result, the heading of the comment form is not being changed from the default text that is specified for it.

Instead of "Reply to (author)" appearing (second parameter in comment_form_title), the first, generic parameter -- "Leave a reply" -- appears.

The only way to make "Reply to (author)" appear successfully is to open the "Reply" link in a new tab.


A bug report was previously opened on this issue and quickly closed with no positive resolution.

The problem exists. Please fix it, or provide an explanation!

Closing pending further feedback.

Sorry, requires JavaScript to be disabled.

In the default theme, when you click "Reply", it moves the comment form to the comment. Thus, "Reply to (author)" is unnecessary.

On the other hand, if you open it in a new window, then the comment form stays where it is, but comment_form_title recognizes $_GETreplytocom? and adds "Reply to (author)".
