I just did a fresh install BE 2.8 SC.

1) Left comment on a blog post as admin.

2) Then created a new user and left a comment as that new user

3) by default, the comment text boxes (like name, county, username etc) are pre-filled by admin username as I posted comments as admin previously.

even if I try to use my info as new user in commenting, it shows avatar img of admin (user who posted previously)

4) Same thing happenes, if I left comment as any new user, now if I log in as admin, the comment fields are pre-filled by user who left comment at last.

any solution ?

Not sure if BE does something extra to preserve commenter info, probably all done by browser caching form data, but from "normal" user perspective this is a good thing. It might be a little inconvenient when you test comments, but usually people don't use multiple accounts to comment on the same blog and preserving inputs saves on typing.

Hi rtur,

thanks for the info, yes it makes sense but I think it is not the best way. I know users won't be logging from more than 1 account. But any application should not be dependent on browser caching data. I think a better way if to have pre-filled information in fields based on logged in user.
If any user is online / logged in to the application
   pre-filled information from the user's profile in the fields for leaving comments to save user's time

  Leave the fields empty
