I have implemented my own set of custom UGC controls that load and save data via the oData service to support commenting on articles in a Tridion 2011 SP1 site. The client has requested that we allow comments to contain multiple paragraphs. If I add a line break to a comment this is removed when the comment is saved. This is the case in both the Comments moderation interface within the CMS as well as when I save a comment using my custom control.
Is it possible to configure UGC to maintain the line breaks in the comments? I can't find any reference to this in the UGC section of the install manual. Is this a limitation of the oData service?
One option would be to change my control so that it replaces the line feeds with
tags before it sends them to the oData service. This works but makes the comments less readable for the moderator. Is there a setting I am missing that would allow the line feed information to be maintained?
