Guest posters names and emails incorrectly being applied
We've had several instances now of guest posters having the wrong Name and Email address being applied to their posts. In one instance a moderator was logged out and replied to a post and it chose the previous posters username and email address.
Our forums are setup right now as guest posting only - no login required.
You cannot control guest's Username and Email in guest posting.
Not looking to control it, what I'm saying is that a guest enters a name and email, but WPForo is choosing the name and email of the previous poster instead. Not all of the time, but often enough that it's a problem.
John comes to the forum, and posts a reply to an existing topic. He uses "John L." as his username and his email is "firstname.lastname@example.org". He writes his post and hit's "Add Reply".
When the reply is posted the reply is correct but the username is now "Nancy S." and when I look at the database I can see that her email is also used "email@example.com"
I have confirmed the errant replies contain the correct text but the wrong attribution of username and email in the database. I've edited a couple of these and the edits take just fine. So there is some problem in the mechanism at the time of submission that is causing these replies to use the previous poster or topic starter's username and email.
Any ideas what?
That happens because of the cookies, after the second reply, the user data will be saved, and it will work fine.
Thanks, I'm eager to hear what they come up with.
