    Hi, I am new in using Sitefinity. We use the old version (3.5) on one of the legacy sites. When I am trying to submit new comment to a blog post I get the following exception:

    ====================

    A required control was not found in the template for "". The control must be assignable form type "System.Web.UI.IEditableTextControl" and must have ID "webSiteTxt". Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code. 

    Exception Details: Telerik.Cms.Web.UI.TemplateException: A required control was not found in the template for "". The control must be assignable form type "System.Web.UI.IEditableTextControl" and must have ID "webSiteTxt".

    Source Error:

    ==============================

    Could you help us to figure out how we could overcome that issue?

    Cheers.
