Amin, is this a temporary fix, as the Edit Photo option makes it difficult to reply properly....devoid of the image (only a thumbnail) other comments, user and photo details, etc.
I disabled the "Quick Comment" in the Gallery. From now on, to leave a comment, use Photo Options > Post a Comment.
[Note to self: $comq removed from showphoto.tmpl]
Amin... as far as I could see, the only problem was that bit of code. I was happy to delete it and make my remarks, the new way of doing things is a real turnoff. Surely people could make the effort and just remove it from the comment.
Sue, thanks for your input. Both solutions are suboptimal, though I'm not sure I agree with you as to which solution is better.
I spent a few hours trying to make it work. So far, no luck. I may have to pay the upgrade, but the Vbulletin upgrade broke our links directory as well as the gallery, and the company which makes both charges full price (there is no upgrade pricing) for access to minor point updates, which I have a problem with on principle (in addition to financially).
