My b2evolution Version: 2.x

I'm using "2.4.5 released on 09/17/08 " with the Miami Blue Skin. URL:

It seems that the Preview functionality of comments is broken. I've tried disabling my anti-spam plugins (Turing Test, ReCAPTCHA) which didn't work. I disabled the OpenID authentication plugin, which didn't work. (I've reenabled the plugins, in case you come over to test.)

I can create and send comments with no problem.

Looking at the code:

if( $action == 'preview' )
{ // set the Comment into user's session and redirect.
        $Comment->set( 'original_content', $original_comment ); // used in the textarea input field again
        $Session->set( 'core.preview_Comment', $Comment );
        $Session->set( 'core.no_CachePageContent', 1 );

        $redirect_to .= '#comment_preview';


maybe my Session is not being set? But I asked firefox to prompt me for cookies, and it did, but it's still not working. Here's the cookie info, FWIW:

Name: cookieb2evosession
Content: <stuff>
Path: /blogs/
Send for: Any type of connection
Expires: <date>

I'm probably missing something obvious, but I've poked and prodded so much that I'm getting a little glassy-eyed! Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

It's because you use "clean" urls without index.php, I just removed the preview button on my sites.

It's interesting to see what others think about it :)

Interesting choice: add index.php or remove the preview option altogether....

Out of curosity, can you share what feedback you have received from removing the preview button?

Thanks for the quick reply!

You must have something else wrong because preview works on my site and I don't have index.php in my urls either ;)
