#1614 closed defect (fixed)

AddComment allows comments to be added by anonymous

We're using the AddComment macro in appendonly mode at and we've noticed a surge in spam comments, so we turned off the appendonly option, thus (as we thought) requiring a user to be logged in to be able to post a comment. However, the following URL will post a comment regardless:


Other than that, thanks for a great macro! /Lars Stavholm

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

The [2818] changeset adds the regular form_token to the form, making it a bit harder to automate spam entry and similar.

About permissions in general, if anonymous has WIKI_VIEW then appendonly will let them add comments. Makes sense, and it should be a easier to read that in the code now.

The fix is working for 0.11, but I don't expect that it will be fixed for older versions now.
