    Im trying to edit the layout of the comments form on my wordpress site. Which file would I have to edit to do this. Basically all I want to do is move the <span class="required">*</span> inside the closing label tag.

    Cheers.

    @richjarvis:

    Sadly, the actual comment form was moved some time back from a theme-level file to a core-level file, making it really annoying... (this is a WordPress-thing, not me)

    hi, i have a child theme of boilerplate. it generates a number for each comment on a page. i want to get rid of this number but it is invisible in the source code so i have no idea how to hide it. VERY STRANGE! please help.

    @anarchocapitalist It's probably an ordered list, and must be hidden using CSS.

    Add something like the following to styles.css in your child theme.
    #comments ol { list-style: none }

    @benklocek: Thanks!

    @anarchocapitalist: Did this resolve your issue? If not, please feel free to reach out directly to me, ideally with a URL showing the issue, and a description of what you would like to have happen.

    And if benklocek's recommendation resolved the issue, can you please mark this as Resolved?

    Thanks,
    Atg

    hi, sorry for my absence. @ben this did not resolve the issue. as you point out aaron, the fact it's been moved to core level means it's a bit of a pain to sort out. I gave up and have removed comments from the site. I may use facebook comments instead or just leave comments out. Sorry, the issue is not important enough for me to spend more time on.

    don't seem to be able to mark this as resolved.

    You can't mark others' threads resolved unless you're a moderator.
