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

Screenshots

  • Comment form before and after applying some of the plugin options
  • Two-column comment form layout

Installation

  1. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Visit the settings page under Comments > Comment Form to customize the form

hello, Very helpful plugin if your theme has removed the default message "Your email address will not be published."

Отличный плагин! Имеются все необходимые настройки и функции: удаление поля url и email, а так же удаление надписи "ваш email не будет опубликован - это именно то, что я искал! Перевод на русский не требуется, все понятно и доступно! Спасибо большое автору плагина, благодаря ему избавился от копания в коде, рекомендую всем!!!

Hello! Is there any way to make this plugin also show the comment? or is it only for the form? It's actually looking perfectly for me, but I can't make this plugin to show the comment as well 🙁 That would be just what I need! any idea?! 🙂

Have installed this on wordpress 4.9.4 and was straight forward to setup. Website url removed and all is working well.
