Changing the comments section on a single page (4 posts)

    For most of my blog, I have readers responding to posts that I've written, but I have one page where I'd like for my readers to be able to share their OIC (Oh, I see) moments with me and allow people to comment. Since this is the content of the page, I'd like for the comments to show up above my sharing links.

    I want to change the box from "Comments" to "Your OIC Momement" and remove the "Leave a Reply". At the bottom, I don't want the second box to say "comments" since they already know their doing that, and to change the button to simply "post".

    I've looked at a few forum plug-ins, but I don't really need anything that advanced. Is there a way I can specifically format the comments just for one page? Here's the page: http://www.oic-books.com/blog/dare-to-share-2/

    Thanks,
    Emily

    That comment field editing actually depends on theme or theme framework. Mostly editing the comments related php file overrides it. Some themes has plugins for easy editing the text. That comments button is defined in wp-comments-post.php.
    What was (if modified) / is your original theme's name ?

    Hi Abhishek,

    I know how I can do it site-wide. I'm hoping someone might be able to offer a plugin or suggestion to limit the changes I'm making to just this one page.

    Thanks,
    Emily

    Hello Emily,

    Oho, I forgot your one page/post criteria. You actually can do it with wordpress conditional tag. From a quick search I practically found no ready made solution (plugin or like that).

    Another thing you can do is, as it is a single static page, maybe a hand coded php page with WordPress call might serve the purpose.

    In other words, you can create a dare-to-share-2.php page (from copy pasting the most of the HTML from frontend) ; Only the comment thing will call the WordPress function.

    You actually need a guest book like function on a good Landing page. There are actually guest book small cms like scripts.

    As practically there is no great plugin for the purpose (plus your need is for one page only), I think its better to think about a separate system, be it page or a script.

    You have quite good idea. By the way, I gave 'hypothesis' ; I honestly never tried any of the method :p
