#38466 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Check if comment content is passed in XML-RPC

Currently empty comments are allowed because wp_handle_comment_submission() isn't used when creating a new comment. Looking at the REST API, it also doesn't use it but still check if the comment isn't empty. Let's apply the same behavior for XML-RPC.

Depends on #14452 for not using wp_die() in wp_new_comment()

In 39045:

XML-RPC: Correctly handle empty and duplicate comments.

This prevents wp_die() being sent in response to an XML-RPC call that attempts to submit a duplicate comment, and correctly returns an error in response to an attempt to submit an empty comment.
