I just installed a blog system for my Dad…plain vanilla WordPress 1.2.2 package. It went fairly smoothly, but I had to modify a php file so I could edit comments from the admin interface.
In wp-admin/post.php, line 697, I added: $content = addslashes($content);
So it looks something like this:
$content = balanceTags($content); $content = format_to_post($content); $content = addslashes($content); // this is the new line $result = $wpdb->query(" UPDATE $tablecomments SET comment_content = '$content', comment_author = '$newcomment_author', comment_author_email = '$newcomment_author_email', comment_author_url = '$newcomment_author_url'".$datemodif." WHERE comment_ID = $comment_ID" );
Prior to this, everytime I tried to edit a comment, I’d see a PHP error complaining about the database syntax. I’m not sure if everyone’s install is like this or not. Maybe I’m missing something. This was a fresh WordPress download too.
