Hello,

When adding a comment, if author email address has a '+' in it, it gets stripped (e.g. my+name becomes myname).

I know it's rather unusual having a '+' in your email, but Gmail supports it.

Is this a wpDiscuz bug or a WordPress bug? I am running the latest version of both.

@nrichard,

Please deactivate the wpDiscuz plugin, check and let us know how it works without the wpDiscuz plugin.

I deactivated wpDiscuz and added a comment with standard WordPress form.

'+' was kept, so it looks like this is a wpDiscuz bug.

I just posted this comment (after logging out)

https://wpdiscuz.com/demo/#comment-4486

with the following email: my+name...

Can you check in admin if the '+' was kept?

Hello,

I tested the version of wpDiscuz you provided, and it is working as expected 🙂

@nrichard,

The changes will be included in the next version, so you will be able to update the wpDiscuz without any worries.
