#16650 closed Bug (wontfix)

BaseCommentNode in comments template tags shouldn't filter "is_public" comments

Reported by: Guilherme Gondim Owned by: nobody

Severity: Normal Keywords: templatetag

The template tag get_comment_list should query all comments instead only the is_public ones.

Why? The developer might want show a message "Comment waiting for moderation." instead just hide it completely. A developer can simple don't show those comments with a if in the template if he want hide non-public comments.

I know that is not a big problem and also that is a backward-incompatible change, but IMHO that is not a good behavior.

Well, this is quite debatable. Not including unmoderated comments by default ensures that they can't be shown accidentally.

If we changed this behavior, every developer would have to add a special case to its templates to hide unmoderated comments, or display them differently, which is backwards incompatible.

Yeah, that is also my concern. I will think in a elegant solution or just create a template tag for my needs. Thank you!

(Maybe I should had discussed it in the developers list before.)
