[resolved] Adding Fields to Comment Form (2 posts)

    Hi,

    I am new to wordpress and understand very little of how it works on the backend. I’ve been doing research for days upon days on how to add extra fields to the default comment form — all to no avail.

    I stumbled on this plugin and it seems to be capable of doing exactly what I want — only one problem — I don’t know how to implement it. I created the fields and it shows up when editing a comment in the admin dashboard, BUT I do not know how to get the fields to show on the form and in the actual published comment (I know you need to call the fucntions, but I have no idea where to start).

    Please any help would be great. I’ve tried reading and rereading the docs, but I’m always left ??? confused ???

    Thanks so much!

    To output comment field meta, you would use get_comment_meta, see:

    Favorite Color: <?php echo get_comment_meta( get_comment_ID(), 'favorite_color', true ); ?>
