Adding Comments to Post - Email validation
A problem occurs when adding an anonymous comment to a post:
The validation message does not show when an invalid email is entered and submitted with the subscription option unchecked. The validation does show when the subscription option is checked.
Related View: Views/Post/CommentFormAnonymous.ascx
Related Classes: UserBaseValidator, PostService.AddComment(), PostSubscriptionValidator
Workaround / fix:
Replace: Html.ValidationMessage("PostSubscription.Email", "Valid email required to subscribe.")
With: Html.ValidationMessage("UserBase.Email", "Valid email required to subscribe.")
Judging from the comments in the PostService code, it looks like the team may already be aware of this issue, but hopefully this'll help someone.
