    i currently have my blog set so users have to be registered & logged in to leave comments. but then i thought maybe i’ll try to encourage more comments by letting anyone leave comments. when i did this, the comment form at the bottom of the page showed a box for name, email, comment etc — but it showed this even for logged in users (such as myself). is this how it’s supposed to work? i thought the registered/logged-in users would just see the comment form with “You are logged in as [name]”? i am basically using the blix theme (and as far as i remember i haven’t modified the comment portion of it)

    is this how it’s supposed to work?

    Depends entirely on the theme. My comments.php has code similar to this:
    if ( $user_ID ) :
    // say "you are logged in as whatever"
    else:
    // show Name/Email/URL inputs
    endif;

    You’ll have to look at the code in your theme and see what it’s doing.
