Comments Not Saving

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to install comments on two of my clients' websites. In both cases, I'm able to display the comment submission form, but the form submissions are not being saved or display. Once I click the submit button, I'm directed to the homepage where #CommentForm is appended to the end of the URL. I have looked through countless forums and Google searches, but I can't find any advice that has fixed this issue. I have followed the instructions from https://processwire.com/docs/modules/guides/comments/ exactly as described, and I'm getting no where.

Like I said, this is set up on two different websites and I'm seeing the same issues with both. I assume it's some issue with connecting with a database, but I don't see anything in the instructions on PW's website that says I need to do anything there.

Hi @Rhen GWL and welcome to the PW forums.

By any chance do you have the template setting "Should page URLs end with a slash?" set to "No"?

There seems to be an issue with the default action of the comments form that will submit the form to the parent page if the current page has no trailing slash.

I opened a GitHub issue here, and in the meantime until Ryan responds you can override the default form action in the $options array for renderForm():

echo $page->comments->renderForm(array('attrs' => array('action' => $page->url)));

This is probably too basic of answer, but I believe you can install the "Regular Blog" (site-regular) Profile that comes with Processwire on a test site to see and test how comments work.  You can also compare your code with it.

You can read more about it at https://processwire.com/blog/posts/introducing-a-new-processwire-site-profile/

My template is set to end with a slash.

But I implemented your override and that worked!! Thanks!

      Hi all, I duplicated the FieldtypeComments module by adding it in site/modules to get the Uikit3 html output.
      Problem: I can't post a comment.
      Where am I doing wrong?
      <?php echo $page->commenti->renderForm(); ?>

      I recently added the PW Comments module to a site. Right now I have it set up to moderate all comments. I have Akismet turned on and the Akismet key entered.
      Today I received a comment with probably 50 links in it. I'm wondering why such an obvious spam comment wasn't flagged immediately as spam.
      Is there anything I can do to tighten things down to weed out obvious spam?

      I'm working on the threaded comments on my website and for this I need to include the comments.js
      When I do this it keeps on giving me the "Uncaught ReferenceRrror: jQuery is not defined". Whatever I do it keeps giving me this error message.
      It's the last javascript file that I load in. So how do I fix it?

      Hi Guys,
      I am running a page template that contains a filter form that allows users to display results based on number of  comments. 
      Here is what I am thinking about doing: 
      -add new field called total_comments 
      -somehow populate this field every time a new comment is added or removed by admin with count($page->comments)
      -use form filter to display results that the selector form has found.
      Example: $selector = “total_comments>=$q”; 
       
      My question to everyone: Is this a good approach? If so how do I get another field to update based on the comment module adding or removing a comment?

      Hey Guys, 
      I am using the https://processwire.com/api/fieldtypes/comments/ to  allow users to comment and rate. Whats the best approach to get an average of all the star ratings for the page?
      Any direction is greatly appreciated!
