#28314 new defect (bug)

cancel_comment_reply_link() is unflexible - respond_id & post check

Focuses: template Cc:


There are two found problems with the function

  1. You cannot define a custom respond id like #respond-POSTID. The respond id (#respond) is hardcoded. So the anchor is not working anymore, if you use a custom respond_id in your theme.
  2. If you include the comments on the blogs page (loop) you have comment areas as much as posts. Now you answer to a comment of a specific comment (for example: This is working fine, just that the cancel_comment_reply_link() is going active for all posts and shows a cancel message under each comment area. It should check for the specific comment area/post and return the message just for the affected comment area/post.

If you want I can create a patch for this two bugs :-)

Best regards,

  • Keywords needs-refresh added; dev-feedback removed
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

comment-template.php.patch Needs a refreshed patch that also adheres to our code style and documentation standards.

I suggest adding $comment = null as the second argument to the cancel_comment_reply_link() and get_cancel_comment_reply_link() functions so they can accept a WP_Comment object. The cancel_comment_reply_link filter should be updated to include the parameter as well. This approach wouldn't require changing the current function argument.
