In Firebug:
XML or text declaration not at start of entity
index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=17:the-beaches-of-st-thomas-and-st-john-us-virgin-islands&catid=1:mountains&Itemid=2()
Line 2

In Web Developer Toolbar:
Error: XML or text declaration not at start of entity
Source File: http://rockymountainraider.com/index.php
Line: 2, Column: 1
Source Code:
<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?><post><id></id><published></published><noerror>1</noerror><debug></debug></post>

It looks like one of those fancy extensions you have in the article view has a bug and/or is conflicting. I'm not too skilled with these debug tools yet, i've never seen this specific error before - hopefully Daniel can give more info.

did you edit the template or the language file and didn't save it in UTF-8`?

Thanks for the feedback. No, I have not edited the language file or template. I'm using the generic template from Joomla (as you can probably tell 5.12).

I've tested it in various browsers, and it seems to work in IE. However, now the text runs vertically and not horizontally. I can't seem to find a toggle for this...

Hey Peter,
Obviously you have changed Joomlacomment!!!
What I see beneath the form is powered by rocket... and not joomlacomment. So you did edit the comment.class.php file - you did something wrong and that is why the comment system is not working.

Agreed. Reinstall JoomlaComment and then we can work from there, i.e. a fresh unmodified install of the component.

I have NOT modified any part of JoomlaComment. I don't even know what Rocket is??? I do know that the comments seem to work for some people on some browsers, and it also worked for IE users. For some reason my FireFox seems to be causing the problem. I'm gonna try to reinstall FireFox and see if that works.

What Daniel ment was the text at the footer of JoomlaComment - "Powered by Rocky Mountain Raider:Adventures". There's nothing wrong with you doing that, but it just means that the comment.class.php file has been modified.
<link href="/index.php?option=com_bca-rss-syndicator&feed_id=1" rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RRR" />
Hmm. Is this the standard Joomla RSS feed link, or from a third party component? (Do you recognize that Daniel?). As I discovered with bugfixing the RSD plugin, the AJAX in JoomlaComment does conflict with custom xml head feeds. Perhaps you could try disabling this "com_bca-rss-syndicator" component and testing the Comment system again. It would explain why only IE users are able to comment, because IE6 ignores most of these head links as far as I know.

Also, I noticed you are using the great module from Gavik called "News Pro GK1", and it's JavaScript library could be conflicting with the AJAX. So also try testing a comment with that module unpublished.

Either way, i'm very interested to get to the bottom of this - we havn't given up yet! Because when we do find the reason, of course that's another possible bug we can investigate and fix :)

Hi,

I'm having the same problem using Firefox. I'm using spanish as my site default language and I noticed that when I switch back to English (using the component settings) the problem disappears. Further investigation shows that the administrator language file is not by default a UTF8 file (at least not when I download it using FTP). I just saved the file using UTF8 without BOM and put it back on the server, but that doesn't seem to help. I have also revised the spanish site language file to make sure it's a clean UTF8 file, but so far, no luck. Just thought you might want to know...

I'll keep investigating

I am also having the same problem on a completely fresh install. No modifications after installing 4.0 beta2. Is there any update on this, or is there any debug that I can provide to assist in troubleshooting? My site is www.nwi-tech.com

Thanks
Scott

Yes, it was having the same issue before modifying the template. I will set it back to default so you can test that way.

Normally this is connected to a modified template, language file or live_site variable in the configuration.php of your site.

This are all the reasons I can remember of. Does anyone of the above fits for you?

I have done a complete uninstall of the comment component, and installed it completely fresh with no modification. I get the same results. I have not modified my configuration.php at all. The configuration.php contains the line var $live_site = ''

there is one strange error message in firebug. Does payperpost tells you anything?

I have removed the code associated with payperpost. You should not see that error in firebug any longer. Still the same problem with comments.

Hmm... You tell us you have a brand-new, fresh and unmoddified Joomla install with nothing except JoomlaComment, but Daniel had to ask you to remove payperpost code soooo.... I don't want to sound rude, honestly, but can you make sure you have nothing else installed? Double check? Triple check?

Have you modified your .htaccess file? Try deleting it and restoring the Joomla default.

Which web browser are you using? Try installing a fresh copy of Chrome, Opera or Firefox and testing it again.

I discovered you're with BlueHost - are you installing Joomla via the Fantastico script? Or manually? Try doing it manually if you have not, and to verify you have 100% correct permissions make sure you enable and configure the FTP Layer feature at the Joomla installation. In the meantime verify your dir/file permissions are 755/644 (having 777 on anything will break Joomla).
