Comments app: cannot save changes to name/email

When I try to edit the name or email for a comment in the Comments app, it doesn't seem to save the changes. The other (custom) fields do, however.

Has something gone wrong or is this intentional?

I also found this in the old forums from some time ago but not sure if it is related: http://support.grabaperch.com/index.php?pg=forums.posts&id=6448

Any help greatly appreciated!

It's not intentional.

Ok thanks. Is it a known bug or does it sound like it may be a problem with my version?

I am running Perch v2.4.9 but I am not sure which version of the Comments app I am using - perhaps version 1? (Found "PerchAPI(1.0, 'perch_comments')" in the code).

Would you recommend I try upgrading to latest Perch and Comments app?

It's using version 1 of the Perch API, which is still the current version.

If you're not on the latest Comments app, it would be worth updating. I'm not familiar with this specific issue.

Thanks, I'll try that and see. Will also try a fresh install to see if I can recreate it.
