Description

bbPress duplicate replies can be fooled by adding a return at the end of a post. bbPress strips this return in the final submission, but it's not considered at duplicate reply detection.

I tested it here:

  • Component changed from General to Component - Replies
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Under Consideration

This could probably be improved to handle basic cases like this.

  • Component changed from Component - Replies to General - Content Creation
  • Keywords good-first-bug needs-patch added
  • Milestone changed from Under Consideration to 2.7
  • Priority changed from normal to low
  • Severity changed from normal to minor

Let’s not get too crazy. Situations like punycode can deepen this rabbit hole by a mile.

Moving to 2.7.
