    I would like to make the following changes to the comment forms for each post:

    ‘Name’ to ‘Name*’

    ‘E-mail Address’ to ‘E-mail* (Will not be published)’

    The third form is blank and I would like “Website” to be displayed there




    you can change the form labels in comments.php. I.e. change:






    Thanks for the help Dude! Please answer my “Remove Read More” and “Remove Repeated Names” … Its really very urgent for me to get this blog running.

    you guys have a great theme and when I bought it, I was expecting great support as well. I have been waiting forever for support on my “Newcast Customizing Questions” When can I expect some answers?

    Really appreciate you taking the time!


    Hi Dude,

    My original Comments.php shows the following code but that’s not whats displayed on my blog. Example: My blog says “E-mail Address” and not “E-Mail (will not be published)” as shown here and same for “website”

    I tried your suggestion abaove and it didn’t work. Please take a look. Thanks

    <label for=”author”><small><?php _e(‘Name’,’newscast’)

    <label for=”email”><small><?php _e(‘Mail (will not be published)

    <label for=”url”><small><?php _e(‘Website’,’newscast’)


    Yes – in this case the field is empty. Search for following code in comments.php:

    if ($comment_author == '') $comment_author = __('Name');
    if ($comment_author_email == '') $comment_author_email = __('E-Mail Adress');

    and change it to:

    if ($comment_author == '') $comment_author = __('Name*');
    if ($comment_author_email == '') $comment_author_email = __('E-Mail Adress*');
    if ($comment_author_url == "") $comment_author_url = __('Website');


    Perfect! That did the trick. Thanks a lot!

    Please answer my “Remove Read More” and “Remove Repeated Names” …
