I've been using WordPress for about a month now and have learned mainly by trial and error. I don't know CSS or html, but that hasn't stopped me from using plugins and tutorials on the net to successfully change the layout of my website. However, there is one simple thing I cannot accomplish: editing the text in the comment form. I have two things I specifically want to do:
The first is to change the "Your email address will not be published." line in the comment form.
The second thing is to add a red * symbol after Name and Captch Code in the form. The captch code is handled by a plugin, so I'm not sure if I should change the plugin code or the comment form code to add the symbol. But the Name part is more important to me right now.
I've looked for a way to do these two things for hours (seriously), but only came up with several unresolved forum questions, resolved questions on older (redundent) versions of WordPress and this page which is very vogue and hard to understand for an html dummy like me. I would highly appreciate it if you could tell me which file to edit for my changes and which lines to add. I'm using a child theme of the standard Twenty Eleven theme. Thank you.
