The Name field for someone posting a comment is pre-populated in Chrome with ‘somebody’, in Firefox with ‘Harry, and in IE with just a blank, which is how I want it.
Looking at the field via Chrome Inspector it show that the value attribute is pre-populating this field in: <p class=”comment-form-author”><input id=”author” name=”author” type=”text” value=”somebody” size=”30″ tabindex=”1″><label for=”author”>Name</label> </p>
If I change value=”somebody” to value=”” in Chrome Inspector, it displays without the ‘somebody’.
How do I make this change permanent in WordPress so thatsomeone posting a comment can just fill in their name in a non-pre-populated field for all browsers?
Thanks for help or ideas.
