A note to all plugin developers:

If your plugin uses  comments and you have the Captcha plugin installed you
will need to update your code slightly for the function

You will now need to take into account the constant COMMENT_ON_SAME_PAGE. If
the attempt to save a comment by a user errors out (ie due to an incorrect
captcha code), if the comment is on the same page as your plugin content
then you need to only return the comment form, if it is not then you need to
return the whole document. You can see the Staticpage and polls plugin in
the repository for an example or see the code below:

function plugin_savecomment_polls($title, $comment, $id, $pid, $postmode)
    global $_CONF, $_TABLES, $LANG03, $_USER;

    $retval = '';

    $commentcode = DB_getItem ($_TABLES['polltopics'], 'commentcode',
                               "pid = '$id'");
    if ($commentcode != 0) {
        return COM_refresh ($_CONF['site_url'] . '/index.php');

    $ret = CMT_saveComment ($title, $comment, $id, $pid, 'polls',
    if ($ret > 0) { // failure //FIXME: some failures should not return to
comment form
        $retval .= CMT_commentForm ($title, $comment, $id, $pid, 'polls',
                                   $LANG03[14], $postmode);
        if (!defined('COMMENT_ON_SAME_PAGE')) {
            $retval = COM_createHTMLDocument($retval, array('pagetitle' =>
        } else {
            if (!COMMENT_ON_SAME_PAGE) {
                $retval = COM_createHTMLDocument($retval, array('pagetitle'
=> $LANG03[1]));
    } else { // success
        $retval = COM_refresh ($_CONF['site_url']
                                . "/polls/index.php?pid=$id");

    return $retval;
