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

Hi juggledad.

This is what I have on my byline;

<image(user.gif)> By %author-link% | %date('F jS, Y')% | <image(comments.gif)> %comments('Leave Comments', 'One Comments', '% Comments', 'Comments are closed')%

On my homepage it shows;

By TwtrCoach | <date> | x Comments and x Reactions (this is the link that brings me to comment-form)

On single page it shows;

By TwtrCoach | <date> | Comments (this is the link that brings me to comment-form)

Both the link on my homepage and single page is the same, and they both do the same => bring me to my comment-form.

The is a sample of how my link looks like;

http://twtrcoach.com/permalink/#disqus_thread

Both options works perfect. Just wanted to see how I can change the actual text on my homepage to be the same as on the single page.

Cheers.. Are

interesting, you learn something new every day.

you have a plugin - discus I guess, that is overriding the items for the comment. Actually (this is where I learned something) the plugin is causing the Atahualpa generated code to be wrapped in a <noscript. which will only show up if your browser doesn't support scripting or you shut it off. (this is what I learned to day)

And infact, if you turn scripting off (in Safari, it's one of the preference options under the security tab) the bylines on the two pages look the same - you migh want to check the discuc options becaues with the scripting off you get

where 'View comments' is a link to Discus Comments and 'Comments' is a link to the normal wordpress comments

Interesting.

I figured it had to be some conflict with DISQUS that I use for my comments.

I use FireFox for my browser. And there I can see that on my Homepage when I load it, then it shows all the options in the %comments% parameter before it stops with X comments and X reactions.

Have to check out Safari, and other browsers here.

Still I want to keep DISQUS commenting. I like their service. So have to see if there is a workaround I can find to get it the way I want it, or at least so it works ok.

Have seen other website that uses DISQUS but with a different theme, where it works like I wanted.

One big blog that I visit often mashable.com uses DISQUS, and there I can see it works ok.

By the way seems like I have been looking to solve this in the wrong end. Needed to edit some of my advanced Disqus option. So it is now almost like I want it..

Thanks for all your help and support. Can't recall how to close the thread..

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
