Editing the Comment form inputs, and adding new ones (4 posts)

    Hi all. Just as a disclaimer: my knowledge of WP innermost frameworks and PHP is below beginner level here.

    I am simply wondering how to edit the default Comment forms on WP: I just want to change a field. I'd also love to hear recommendations for Plugins that achieve this effect. Surprisingly, all Google searches on this topic yield how to change the code, but I can't find any plugins.

    Anyway, my issue is that if I do have to go in and edit the default Comment forms. I cannot find where to do it. I am using Thematic. I was reading a tutorial from WP Tuts on this very issue, which is here for reference, but I cannot find where to insert/edit any of the code they are mentioning.

    Any help would be appreciated. I am sorry this subject matter is so novice.

    As far as where to put the code, you can either create a Child Theme or create a Plugin. It may sound daunting, but a very basic version of either is quite easy to do. Doing anything else with your custom code will likely result in it getting overwritten during an upgrade cycle.

    Esmi, do you have an example of those items in action? I really do not know how to integrate them.
