Known Issue: Empty Guest Field Name Stops Ability to Post


Recommended Posts

KOTW has discovered an issue with Guest Posting which was caused by an update several weeks ago. The following is a temporary work around.

The issue is as follows: If you forget to put in a name in Guest Field and write your post and complete the Security puzzle, you will be prompted to enter a Guest Field name. The only problem is that the Security puzzle does not re-generate (appear again) and you will not be able to post since you need to successfully complete the puzzle before the post will be accepted.  The Puzzle is necessary because of Spam bots which in years past attacked the board.  Therefore, please make sure you complete the Guest Field name before writing your post.  KOTW apologizes for this bug and the next update will correct this issue.

Update on this issue:  An update has been installed which now allows a Guest poster who forgot to enter a name in the Name field to enter a name after filling the Security puzzle.  Please note that the Puzzle will not reappear unless it was done incorrectly.  You can enter the Guest name and submit and it will be placed in the KOTW post review queue.

This resolves this issue.  Thanking everyone for your patience.
