I looked through the forums and did some Google searches and I didn't really find the answer to my question.
I'm working on a new design using WordPress as a CMS. There is only one log entry and it is set as the main page, and the comments are the more important part. What I want to do is add a category field for the comments. The visitor can select a different category for the comment, so that when the page is loaded, I can display the comments from different categories in different ways.
I've been looking at the PHP for the comment functions, but I'm not PHP savvy enough to muck around with it. I'm afraid I'll break something.
So my basic question is:
If I add a drop-down menu on the comments form, what changes to the PHP functions do I need to make to process another variable? How do I take the category they choose and return it as a variable in the comment loop?
If I'm being unclear, please say so and I'll attempt to clarify.
