The text format for the Body field on Blog Comments is set to "Commerce Order Message". I think it should be "Filtered HTML", to (a) preserve linebreaks as commenters probably expect, and (b) be consistent with Drupal generally.

Making things worse: I tried to change it to Filtered HTML (Content Types -> Blog post (edit) -> Comment fields -> Comment (edit) -> Change text format popup and save). But the save didn't take. Perhaps this is stored in Features or something like that?

Anyway, I think the change should be true by default, on installation. Thanks!

Quick solution:
go to
Administration > Site settings > Advanced settings > Configuration > Content authoring > Text formats
path : admin/config/content/formats
and change the order, put "Filtered HTML" first.

But, indeed, this is an issue but it's a Commerce Message isssue.
Here is the issue and the patch for this : #1872062-1: Commerce Order Message filter format available only for Message Types entities

I can confirm that changing the default format for the comment body doesn't stick.

#1 won't fix it, because it also changes the default for the "add message" form (and if that format is not used for messages, it has little point).
So we need to do more research here.

On a clean install with CK2.13 the default text format for comments is Filtered HTML. What do you think should be done here?
