Hi @matejstrnad, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the report.

It's not quite clear what you mean by "user data", could you elaborate please? What are the steps to reproduce the issue on a clean install?

#2 @matejstrnad

I think the forms were completed. I'm not sure about that reproduction, maybe it would help save the data when posting comments on posts and allowing comments on a page.

Do you mean that the comment form (on pages, at least) is pre-filled with name, email and website information? If so, they originated form a cookie set in the visitors browser, after having commented on the site recently, I believe.

If this is not what you mean, please explain in further detail and how to see it, and upload a screenshot of the form and data.

I personally do not understand it, it was displayed to all people and it was not my data, it was the user who last commented. Because of GDPR, I disabled comments on that page. When I turned it on now it wasn't there anymore. As for the data, there was name, e-mail and the web.

Do you use any caching plugin? Any plugins active at all?

If caching, please use the support forum for that plugin to get help.

If any plugins active, and this happens again, please try with all of them deactivated.

This Trac is for recording and fixingbugs, not indivual help. Unless there is a way to reproduce this behaviour on a clean installation (no plugins, default theme) there is little we can do here.

Please try our support forums https://wordpress.org/support/welcome/ to get help. If it turns out it might be a bug in WordPress, feel free to come back an reopen this ticket.
