Thank you for making such a great commenting system. I recently installed the Core version but when I clicked on any article in the front end, I got a white screen. After reviewing numerous errors, I was able to trace the problem down to PHP 7.1 - which is causing fatal errors for lots of Joomla extensions right now. When I rolled my PHP version back to PHP 7, the article pages display find and there are no problems with the Commenting system. I know PHP 7.1 is very new, but I wanted to alert you to this problem so you can prepare a fix for it. I also wanted to let others know if they get the white screen, just roll back to PHP 7 and wait for the problems to be resolved before moving to PHP 7.1. Just to be clear the community version of REDJ extension was also throwing errors and this may have also involved this tool. But what finally solved the problem was rolling back the PHP version.

Hey David,
Would you please enable error reporting on your site and then switch back to 7.1 What is the error on the page?

I just did a fast test with PHP 7.1 and I can't reproduce the described behavior. So probably it's a bug when some feature or plugin is turned on that is not turned on per default.

regards,
Daniel

Daniel,
I went back to PHP 7.1 with error reporting on. This time the articles display OK - no white screen. There are no errors. So I will leave PHP 7.1 on and continue to work on the site. I have no idea what caused the white screen or caused it to go away. But if it comes back I will turn error reporting back on and let you know what the error was.
Regards,
David Spring
