WP Comment Notes


Add custom notes before or after the comment form.


  • Example of metaboxes
  • Example of display


This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.

  1. Upload wp-comment-notes to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Add some text in the fields on a post
  4. That’s it.


How does it work?

Activate the plugin and the metaboxes will appear for posts. Use the filter to add more post type support.

Does this work on my custom post type?

Not by default. Use the wpcmn_type_support filter to add it. Example below:

function cmm_partial_types( $types ) {

    $types[] = 'MY_CUSTOM_POST_TYPE';

    return $types;
add_filter( 'wpcmn_type_support', 'cmm_partial_types' );
Can I add more options to the message type dropdown?

Sure can. Use the wpcmn_before_types or wpcmn_after_types filters. Example:

function cmm_more_before( $before_type ) {

    $extra = '';
    $extra .= '<option value="wild" '.selected( $before_type, 'wild', false ).'>'.__('Wild', 'wpcmn').'</option>';
    $extra .= '<option value="crazy" '.selected( $before_type, 'crazy', false ).'>'.__('Crazy', 'wpcmn').'</option>';

    return $extra;

add_filter( 'wpcmn_before_types', 'cmm_more_before' );
I don’t like the CSS that comes with it

Then write your own. It’s a free country. If you have to disable it, use the wpcmn_killswitch filter. Example:

function cmm_killswitch() {

    return true;

add_filter( 'wpcmn_killswitch', 'cmm_killswitch' );
Where is the settings menu?

There isn’t one. On purpose.

They don’t show up on my theme.

Then you’re using a theme / framework that has gone cowboy and done it their own way. I can’t do anything about that.
