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
  • remove the URL field

Comment section

  • upload a custom default avatar
  • define a custom avatar shape among: circle, triangle, rhombus, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, nonagon, decagon, bevel, rabbet, or message
  • hide the comment’s date
  • design the Reply button to your liking: border, radius, background, text, hover colors

Better Comments Premium provides other sets of options that allow you to:

  • enable comments quicktags for your audience to format their comments nicely: you can define built-in quicktags with the most used quicktags (bold, italic, link etc) or define your own quicktags within the admin panel
  • access time-saving admin controls: oEmbeds in comments, disable admin self-notifications, add referrer to notifications, allow admin to comment on closed to comments posts
  • reduce SEO errors with smart redirects and keep the juice flowing
  • increase security levels and reduce spam: shutdown trackbacks, disable comments cookies, discard comments posted with a numeric name, discard people impersonating registered members
  • disable comments on both built-in post types and your custom post types
  • remove comments completely from both built-in post types and your custom post types

New features are added on a regular basis.
