Advanced Comment Form


Advanced Comment Form enables you to customize the WordPress comment form right from your dashboard.

You can find the settings page under Comments > Comment Form in the dashboard.

Remove Fields

  • remove the email field for standard, and non standard comment forms
  • remove the website field for standard, and non standard comment forms

Change Texts

  • remove the message that emails are not published and which fields are required
  • remove the text about which html tags are allowed
  • insert custom text before the form
  • insert custom text after the form


  • use a two columns layout for the comment form


  • [comment-form] shortcode to insert comment form into posts and pages

I am open to your suggestions for more features here or in the github repository

Important Notes

  • the plugin works only, if your theme uses the standard WordPress comment form function
  • options that where submitted with the comment_form function in your template overwrite most of the plugin functions


  • Comment form before and after applying some of the plugin options
  • Two-column comment form layout


  1. Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Visit the settings page under Comments > Comment Form to customize the form

I was looking for a way to get the comment form displayed in Elementor when using the canvas template. The shortcode worked perfectly and solved my problem. Thanks for a great workaround.

hello, Very helpful plugin if your theme has removed the default message "Your email address will not be published."

Отличный плагин! Имеются все необходимые настройки и функции: удаление поля url и email, а так же удаление надписи "ваш email не будет опубликован - это именно то, что я искал! Перевод на русский не требуется, все понятно и доступно! Спасибо большое автору плагина, благодаря ему избавился от копания в коде, рекомендую всем!!!

Hello! Is there any way to make this plugin also show the comment? or is it only for the form? It's actually looking perfectly for me, but I can't make this plugin to show the comment as well 🙁 That would be just what I need! any idea?! 🙂
