Here’s a new one. My WordPress sites uses the Discourse WordPress plugin to take over the commenting feature entirely.
However, the other day, I ended up with a new comment made within WordPress that somehow circumvented the Discourse plugin. It wasn’t posted and I have no idea what would happen if it were posted, given that the article in question also has comments loaded from Discourse.
When I queried the user, he said that he had made the comment from within the WordPress Mobile app.
Does this suggest that there’s a way that the Discourse WordPress plugin isn’t properly redirecting a post attempt, or that the WordPress Mobile app isn’t honoring the commenting configuration for the site?
Obviously, not a huge deal, but an interesting edge case.
