I've got a great Comment Form and Threaded Comments setup by using the native WordPress functions:
However, I'm trying to also create a custom Contest Comment template for certain posts. I call
comments_template('/contest-comments.php', true); conditionally based on whether a certain custom field exists or not. It works great.
I'm trying to make it look along the lines of http://2010.sf.wordcamp.org/attendees/
I only want to show the person's name wrapped in a link and their avatar. Therefore, I want my comment form to only show the Name, Email, and URL fields. The text area should be hidden.
For the Comment Form, I am passing an empty value for the
comment_field key in the
$args array I'm passing into
This makes the comment form look okay, but when someone submits a comment, they get a warning from WordPress saying that their message was blank.
Any solutions on how to solve this? Thanks!
