Hello,

How can I allow user submitting comment with empty text (rating required)? I tried this code snippet but it didn't work: 

add_filter( 'allow_empty_comment', function ($allow, $data) {
  return true;
}, 10 , 2 );

@itlr,

We're really sorry, but wpDiscuz doesn't allow empty content. However, I've asked the developers to check this and if it's possible, they'll add the feature in the future versions of the wpDiscuz plugin.

@asti I see. As a work around, is there a way to set a default text?

@asti or allowing only spaces in comment text and setting a default space-only default comment?

Dear @itlr,

There is not an easy solution we can post here. This requires some custom coding.

Dear @itlr,

The new version already has this feature. Now you can use the "allow_empty_comment" hook. Besides adding the hook, you should also change the following options as well:

  • Comment Text Length
  • Reply Text Length

The values of those fields should be set to 0.
