Redirection after commenting leads to an empty page [not confirmed]
|Reported by:||DarkPepe||Owned by:|
I found this weird bug when starting a give away contest on my blog were the users need to post 20.000 comments to win a piece of hardware.. anyway... after a few hundred comments (even on crazy rithm like 10 comments per second) we found that every user was beeing redirected to an empty comment page after commenting.
After further investigation, the reason seems to be related with comments wating for aproval.. they kind of "use a comment slot" but they aint show on the comment page, so if you post the comment #21, you will be redirected to the next comment page wich actually doesnt exists. (we are paginating the comments in sections of 20 per page).
I cant confirm if this is a WP bug or my own comment template. The most extensive test was using another of my personal blogs and the problem seems to repeat there too, but again, could be my comment template programing.
If you want to test it, this is the enviroment we have atm:
- Paginated comments by 20. (displaying them with paginate_comments_links() function instead of reglar next/prev links)
- At least 1 comment wating for moderation (not SPAM, just wating approval)
- 19 visible comments on the page + the comment wating for aproval.
- Then post the 20th comment (actually 21) and you must be redirected to comment page 2 wich doesnt exists.
I hope the explanation is clear enought ... :)
Cheers and Thank you.
