#40664 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Handling of empty comments

I couldn't find any decent way of avoiding the "ERROR: please type a comment" message to appear if an empty comment is submitted. I was hoping to hook in somewhere and perform some custom action if an empty comment is encountered. The attached patch simply provides an action "require_valid_comment" that can be hooked into passing the post ID as the only argument. For my own use, I would redirect the user back to the post and tag on an error to be picked up in a custom comments template.

Hey @zakalwe thanks for the ticket. Sorry it took so long for someone to respond to this.

This is actually a duplicate of #18630. If you read the first comment there, there's quite a bit more to solving this than it appears at first glance.

Closing this to consolidate discussion to that ticket.
