Advanced Comment Form

Description

Advanced Comment Form enables you to customize the WordPress comment form right from your dashboard.

You can find the settings page under Comments > Comment Form in the dashboard.

Remove Fields

  • remove the email field for standard, and non standard comment forms
  • remove the website field for standard, and non standard comment forms

Change Texts

  • remove the message that emails are not published and which fields are required
  • remove the text about which html tags are allowed
  • insert custom text before the form
  • insert custom text after the form

Layouts

  • use a two columns layout for the comment form

Shortcode

  • [comment-form] shortcode to insert comment form into posts and pages

I am open to your suggestions for more features here or in the github repository

Important Notes

  • the plugin works only, if your theme uses the standard WordPress comment form function
  • options that where submitted with the comment_form function in your template overwrite most of the plugin functions
