A few days ago a user of WP-Forge named Joseph asked me how he could modify the comment form and I did a little research and found a few resources that would help him out. You can view the thread here http://themeawesome.com/themeawe/forums/topic/editing-comment-form/
He came back a few days later, and said he tried but couldn’t modify the form. Joseph’s code was spot on, with just one minor discrepancy that was preventing it from working properly and I helped with this.
This got me thinking that maybe other users may want to do the same thing. So I decided to modify the comments.php file to include all of the elements a user would need to change the comment form if they so desired.
I hope this helps anyone who may want to do this. As always enjoy!
