Show some love...

So, how’s the manuscript coming?  Writer’s Block?  No worries.  Grab a cup of coffee, chat up the cute barista for a bit then take a seat and relax for a moment while I fill you in on what is the best WordPress comment plugin.

It Drove Me Crazy!

what is the best wordpress contact form pluginOkay, this drove me absolutely crazy when I first started putting my site together and nobody could give me a simple solution that just plain old worked.

The theme I chose for this blog, as well as most themes I’m sure, came with an email address and website field in the comment form. The email address is usually required in order to make a comment and the website url is optional. I did not want these two fields to show up because I’m not collecting emails and, in my opinion, may discourage people from leaving a comment.

I don’t know anything about coding and, from what I understand, this extra coding disappears as soon as the theme updates and I would have to do it all over again. I know what you’re thinking. Ghastly, Barb! Isn’t it, though!

The cute barista is winking at you.  Gotcha, upon researching some more, I found that this problem could be corrected by using a WordPress plugin.

It just does what it has to do with one added benefit in that you can add text before and after the comment form.

Woo! Hoo!

    Thanks for the info, I finally found my pesky email field remover. I’m working on a gaming related site and If there’s one thing I know about gamers we like to stay as anonymous as possible when leaving comments, lol.
    I’m definitely gonna give Advanced Comment Form a try. Just out of curiosity, did you only use it for email field removal or did you find some other useful tweaks?

      Hi, JT! Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. I’m so glad I could help you out. I removed the website field as well. In my opinion, forcing someone to leave their email address or website just to make a comment would simply discourage them from leaving a comment. I really want to interact with my readers not invade their privacy. Cheers!
