Change "Leave a reply" text in comments

Recommended Posts


Hi Guys,


I'm looking to re-word the "Leave a reply" text in the comments section. 


I have done a bit of looking around the various wordpress forums and found that by adding the following to the comments.php file i can get it working but unfortunately the comments section is now doubling up. 


comment_form(); ?>
    <?php comment_form( array( 'title_reply' => 'Comment here please', 'label_submit' => 'Go go go!' ) ); ?>


I wonder does anyone no what ive done wrong? Problem can be seen here: http://gwd-test.flcreative.ie/?p=76

Hi there, if you edit the core files the changes will be wiped out each time you update.


You'll need to add this as a filter inside the functions.php of a child theme like - https://github.com/Dannyholt/Skeleton


function comment_reform ($arg) {
$arg['title_reply'] = __('Your text goes here');
return $arg;

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      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,
