    I like to change it to :
    – name
    – email
    – company
    – comments

    Some problems i cannot resolve

    • how to make all 4 fields required (in the wp admin < settings < discussions I can make name and email required)
    • how to show the comments so that the name and the company are visible (eg “John Doe, HisCompany” said: …”).

    Hope you can help me,

    Kind regards

  • Hi chiefbief,
    Regarding your “Some problems i cannot resolve”
    for second one you have to edit fields name in wp-admin/comment.php to show your name and the company are visible.

    and for the first solution. you have to do changes on wp core files.

    Hope this will help you.
