I agree with this point. If you've ever been in the "Preview" or "Comment on" page, and you use the chatterbox, you arrive at a very weird page that tells you "No such parent node".

    Actually this is one of those PITA issues of Everything that I think is probably quite hard to work around. The problem is that forms on PM are idendependent. So when you submit from the CB nodelet its a totally different form from the one that may be displayed in the "node view". I guess hypothetically we could make all pages be just one big form, but then you have all kinds of issues like walking on each others parameters and things like that.

    Simpler work arounds might be simply not showing the nodelets when viewing preview/comment on, or possibly putting special logic into the CB (and other form bearing nodelets) so that it wouldnt include a form on those pages.

    Anyway, i guess the main reason this hasn't been fixed is that it is in the annoyance category and not the showstopper category, and the work arounds arent too much better than the original problem.


      Setting base target="_blank" for previews would be a solution, as I've discussed before...

      - tye        

        For preview it would be a solution sure, and a better one than the ones i had in mind at that. But its not a general solution is it? We have many pages with this issue. Basically any page that has a form on it that doesnt involve creating something has this problem. For instance while testing my new inbox stuff Grandfather noticed the problem existed there.

        I think its the kind of thing that can be worked around much of the time, but a general solution would be good, although I suspect that its far too late for that.
