Hi,

I had coded you a WordPress 3.0 comment form based on the above codes you posted.
This form uses the function comment_form().
You can further customization by adding into the $arguments array.
You can refer to http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/comment_form
or http://ottopress.com/2010/wordpress-3-0-theme-tip-the-comment-form/
for customization examples.

Or simply drop me a reply, I will add in your customization.


<section id="leaveresponse">

<?php if (get_option('comment_registration') && !$user_ID) : ?>

<p>You must be <a href="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-login.php?redirect_to=<?php echo urlencode(get_permalink()); ?>">logged in</a> to post a comment.</p>

<?php else : ?>

<?php
$arguments = array(
'id_form' => 'commentform',
'id_submit' => 'submit',
'title_reply' => __( '<h3 class="cssfonts--17">Leave a Response</h3>' ),
'title_reply_to' => __( 'Leave a Reply to %s' ),
'cancel_reply_link' => __( 'Cancel reply' ),
'label_submit' => __( 'Post Comment' ),
);
?>
<?php comment_form($arguments); ?>

<?php endif; ?>

</section>



Thanks.

Denzel,

I am familiar with Otto's writeup and [[LINK href="http://bluemushrooms.com/wordpress-adding-comment_form-theme/"]]Sapphire's response[[/LINK]]. I am looking for more of a finished product, I just don't have the time to do this myself. If you can do the customization we can wrap this WPQuestion up as answered. :)


Denzel Chia comments:

Yes,

Just use the above code and tell me what you need further.

Thanks.


Matt Taylor comments:

We need to add html to the field inputs themselves for things such as classes, aria-required="true", and to control input types such as email.

So the fields we need to add code to are: name, email, website, and comment.


Denzel Chia comments:

Ok,

The below codes adds in the fields name, email, website in the $fields array.
Just change the class="comment-form-author" to what you need.
For the comment textarea just change class="comment-form-comment"to what you need.
And any other HTML in it that you want to change into.
