I hate when a user switch to another system :(

Would you do me a favor? Would you still give me ftp access and enable the module on subpage or so. Give me a link to this page - I want to find out why some users have this problem.

Two choices:

(01) Turn on UBBCode support in the backend. I am surprised you didn't mention it was off (or try turning it on) when Daniel was asking about UBBCode functions, though it doesn't matter.

(02) Alternatively, make code changes as detailed here[/here].

This will also be address in the next RC2 release.

Yes, turning On UBBcode it works, but we don't want it on. Where to apply the patch?

The patch should be applied to components/com_comment/joscomment/comment.class.php.

For those unfamiliar with the unified diff format and must modify the code manually:
1. the lines prefixed with '+' are to be added (don't add the '+' prefix!)
2. the lines prefixed with '-' are to be removed

To be really truthful, I didn't actually test whether the patch properly limits post sizes, so don't hit me if it doesn't work. I wrote the code primarily to fix the newline problem. B)

I guess your post was too long for the forum.

:laugh: I edited it...

Yes I tested it and it works well enough. I was not sure if you realized you fixed this mod_comments bug Chong but thanks for the find!

If you are not confident of your own change ant then you can use this comment.class .php file - just unzip it and upload+overwrite it to home/components/com_comment/joscomment/
