I noticed the attachment didn't have the visual editor enabled (it's enabled by default). Maybe it's related to that.

Name: netweb

Mail: test@test.test

Title: bbPress #2234

Clicked submit and post was accepted as valid:

Name: netweb

Mail: test@test

Title: bbPress #2234 #2

Clicked submit ERROR: Invalid email address submitted!

Confirmed: Post data was lost.

@h646572 Try disabling all your plugins except bbPress and switching to 2011/2012 WP themes.

Happens with all plugins (except bbPress) disabled. Happens with 2012 theme.

bbpress/templates/default/bbpress/form-anonymous.php is using bbp_current_anonymous_user_data( 'email' ); to fill the value for those inputs. That functions ultimately gets the user information from a cookie. But the cookie doesn't get set in the first place, because of the validation error. Catch 22!

For those users that reported seeing this working, please try clearing cookies or using a different browser and try again?

Btw, that file I mention does this to set up those values:

value="<?php bbp_is_topic_edit() ? bbp_topic_author_email() : bbp_is_reply_edit() ? bbp_reply_author_email() : bbp_current_anonymous_user_data( 'email' ); ?>"

Hate those ? : chained. @JJJ, do you care if a re-do this in a less readable way?

Not entirely within the original scope of this ticket but....

It did not appear for me with trunk, but it seems to be happening for others.

#13 @h646572

Once I go back to 2.2.4 I can confirm that the problem re-appears.

  • Milestone changed from Future Release to 2.4
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

This appears to be fixed in trunk.
