#3556 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

hitting post reply more than once creates duplicate posts

Reported by: louisnorthmore's profile louisnorthmore Owned by:
Milestone: 1.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 1.2.9
Component: Forums Keywords: needs-patch


Hi Guys,

Users on my test site running on 1.2.9 are causing me no end of grief by filling up some forums full of 'spam' posts, by deliberately hitting 'post reply' numerous times. With just a few clicks I had over 140 pages of forum posts.

Does the same with latest trunk.

Apologies if this has already been reported!

You could try something like this javascript:

     jq('input[type=submit]', this).attr('disabled', 'disabled');

  • Keywords needs-patch added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 1.5.1
  • Version changed from 1.5 to 1.2.9

Confirmed. We should probably do a duplicate post check like WordPress does for comments ( Too late for 1.5, but we should be able to sneak this in shortly thereafter.

  • Milestone changed from 1.5.1 to 1.6

IMO this is too substantial for a point-point release.

#4 @boonebgorges

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

(In [5567]) Prevents users from posting identical replies to the same forum topic, to prevent flooding and spam. Fixes #3556
