Change "Leave a Reply" text on Comments

Recommended Posts


I've figured out how to change the text in the meta bar, but how can I change the standard text on the comments sections? 


I would like to change "Leave a Reply" to "Leave a Review".

You can do this by using a child theme or the customize plugin and adding the following code to the functions.php file within your child theme or customize plugin (Do not edit the functions.php file in the DMS directory).


function my_comment_text ($arg) {
$arg['title_reply'] = __('Add your replacement text here');
return $arg;
In the code above, where you see Add your replacement text here, edit this and add what you like.

Please search our forums, before posting!

Thanks Danny! 


It didn't work for me, but I realize that is because I have "Jetpack Comments" activated. I realized Jetpack Comments lets you change this text by simply going to settings, discussion and editing the "greeting text" to whatever you'd like. 


Sorry about that.

Thanks for letting us know 

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

      I know this does not have anything to do with Pagelines directly but this is happening on my PL5 site.  At the bottom of my blog posts I have put the Facebook Comments Plugin and it works well but when people are leaving comments they are the same for every post.  Does anyone have any idea on how to solve this so the comments are for the post they are on.  Does that make sense? Ha!
      Thanks for any ideas folks.

      Does the magazine section not support comments?  I have comments allowed but they aren't showing on post pages and there doesn't seem to be a way to add a comments section in either.
      Many thanks in advance.

      I have installed and activated the disqus comments plugin and no matter what I do the comments will not show up on my posts. Is this a know glitch with disqus and pagelines?

      Hello all,
      I realize there's a chance that this super-basic question is going to make me look foolish, but I can't find a setting for it.
      Most blogs I come around allow people to reply to a specific comment (there's a reply link for each comment as opposed to just one reply at the bottom of the comment list).
      On a blog I manage that's using Pagelines (and foolishly not a child theme), there's no such reply link for each comment, only one at the bottom of the page.  I thought maybe there was a comments setting somewhere that would enable "in-line" commenting, but I couldn't find one.
      Am I overlooking something very basic, or is it a matter of adjusting the theme code to allow this?
      Thanks in advance,

      The comments on blog posts isn't working? it used to but now if you click the 'leave comment' link it goes to the bottom of the page and there is no comment box
