Support » Fixing WordPress » Customize comment form

  • Hey there,

    I’m having some trouble with the customization of the comment form. The theme I am using is a child theme of Twenty Eleven and can be found on

    I would like to change some of the default variables used by comment_form() which is called from comments.php.

    In order to do this I copied comments.php to my childs theme folder and followed the example from I plugged in the following code in comments.php before the comment.form() call.

    <?php $comments_args = array(
            // change the title of send button
            // change the title of the reply section
            'title_reply'=>'Write a Reply or Comment'

    Then I replaced comment.form() by comment.form($comments_args) and it should replace the defined variables. Only it doesn’t.

    Does anybody have any ideas about this? I’ve been looking for an answer for a couple of hours but I didn’t find one.
