Edit the Text in the Comments Box

Hi All and thanks in advance for the help.

I'm wondering how I can edit the text within the comments box... I want to add some text and a link under the name, mail and website fields.

Oh, and what is supposed to happen when one clicks on the "You can use these HTML tags" link? On my site it just gets redirected back to the same page.

Thanks again for the help

you can find the code that makes the comment form starting at line 79 in comment.php (in version 3.4.4)

Hi juggledad

Trying to figure out how I can make my Byline text the same on my Homepage (with multipost) as on my single post (permalink).

On my Homepage my Byline says "X comments and X reflections" => the link here brings me where I want it too.

On my permalink page the same Byline says "Comments" => and the link brings me to the same place as at my Homepage, which is exactly what I want.

So want the text on my Homepage Byline to say "Comments" instead of "X comments and X reflections". And can't figure out where I can change this.

Cheers.. Are

make sure you have the same settings at ATO->Edit POST/PAGE INFO ITEMS for all four (4) of the BYLINE options

Thanks for you fast response juggledad.

I did a copy and paste on all 4 Byline fields, so they should be the same.

But still I get the same result.

Not sure if I might need to edit comment.php or one of the related files.

I uses DISQUS for commenting. And I see other blog where it works they way I am looking for it to work. But they use a different theme then Atahualpa. I have upgraded to the latest version.

Cheers.. Are

Is there a way to change the text in the comment box without changing the comments.php file (like inserting lines to the HTML)?

My site has two language versions which I run each site on WP-Mu, and I don't want to touch to .php files for changing the text as much as I can. That is one of the reasons for me to choose atahualpa.

My sites: oburkedi.com and oburkedi.com/english
