EDIT: I posted the solution as a comment below


I cannot figure out how to change the comment form. I want to change the default txt that says

Author (required)

Email (will not be published)(required)


I have tried changing this (below), but it had no effect on the form itself

You are looking at the CSS for the comment form. Have you tried unchecking the author and email requirement in the WordPress settings.

Yep.



It did not remove them. I looked through a lot of the css files/ php files, and that css comment-form is the only place I could find the exact txt I want to edit..

Ok! I figured it out.. I had to go into the actual theme php files on my server and edit the 'comment-form.php' (located in /wp-content/themes/montezuma/includes/)



which resulted in the change..
