The comment box seems to default to Author Nickname and Date & Time, both of which are links, above the comment itself.

There doesn't appear to be any way to change these in ATO > Post/Page Info Items or ATO > Comments. Where are these options set?

You can put any post info item into any of the text area? Did any of the post info items not work?

I expected to find whatever code was generating the Nickname and Date & Time info in the "Comment form style" box under the "Comments" tab, but found nothing but formatting info (padding, border, etc.).

So, I pasted:

%author-description%

into "Comment form style" to see if that had any effect on what appeared in a Comment, and it does not.

The %author-description% info does show up in posts with that pasted into the appropriate boxes in "Post/Page info items". (Though it would be nicer if the bio was visible before hitting one of the reply options.)

I am still using 3.3.3, as I was allowing some more time for the dust to settle. Perhaps the new version will make the Comment box editing options easier to find?

There are a few non-editable areas left, I'll try to include them soon

The options with "Style" in their title are for CSS
