There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

How can I change "Leave a Reply" text (In comments box) for one specific page?

I can see that the "Leave a Reply" text can be changed in comments.php, but this would change it everywhere. Also, I wouldn't want to tweak the theme files if I can avoid it.

Is there a way to change it just for one specific page, and ideally could this magic be worked by css?

Thanks much!

Ok I'm just going to change "Reply" to "Comment" on line 124 of Comments.php as instructed by Juggledad in other similar threads. Decided "Leave a Comment" would work just fine on all pages. I would, however, still be curious to hear if anyone knows how to do this with css. No biggie, though.

You can't use CSS to cange code. You could use CSS to display one chunk of HTML while hiding another, but both chunks of code would have to exist.

for example
<div id="part-a">this is line 1</div>
<div id="part-b">this is line 2</div>

using this css
div#part-a {display:none}

would hide 'this is line 1' while showing the other like
