#7895 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Wordpress should "optionally" store name and email address options for comments

Description

In a weblog where people send comments without logging in (for example because they don't want to create an account, or because blog admin doesn't let them), they can send comments by entering their email address and name. If their first comment is accepted, the next comments will not need approval.

There must be a way (using cookies) to store the name and email address (optionally) for the user, so if he comes to the same weblog again to send a comment, the name and email address fields would be filled automatically.

I'm pretty sure you'll find that this allready happens, Leave a comment on a random blog, close the window, return to the page again, and it'll be prefilled allready.

This is the default in WordPress.

  • Summary changed from Wordpress should store name and email address options for comments to Wordpress should "optionally" store name and email address options for comments

Then there was a glitch in my tests. Anyways, this should be "optional". So if I'm sending a comment from a public computer, my personal info shouldn't persist. I'm updating the bug summary accordingly.

  • Status changed from reopened to closed

Marked as wontfix by a core developer and easily "fixed" with a plugin. Infact I think there are multiple existing plugins to do it.
