Better Comments

Better Comments is a great tool to help you style and customize your comment form and your comments section, in just a few clicks.

It saves you from having to meddle with your child theme's CSS, just select the options you need and you're all set.

Here's a glimpse of what you can do with Better Comments:

Comment form

  • customize the look and feel of your comment form fields: border, radius, background and text colors
  • match the submit button with the colors of your site: border, radius, background and text and hover colors, dropshadow
  • highlight the fields as they are selected and typed in
  • set a Comment Policy section that can sit before or after the comment textarea, and define its look and feel
  • stack all fields in the comment form, to mimick a mobile view
  • move the comment field to the bottom of the form
