What is the best way to add custom fields to a WordPress comment form? (for example subject, image, etc...)

And how do I use the data entered afterwards...

Hi @hannit cohen:

This slideshow from Beau Lebens should be able to show you how:

And this blog post from Otto should be able to show you more:

  • after trying to use then, figured out they show how to addd the fiekds, but not how to get the entered data afterwards :-( Sep 20, 2010 at 3:46
  • @hannit cohen: Can you post your code that you used that did work so we don't have to guess at what exactly you are doing? Thanks. Sep 21, 2010 at 6:20
  • Is there a modern source on the web to this same exact process that worked back in 2010?

My newly updated plugin (version 2) is available here http://www.solaceten.info/wp-extra-comment-fields-v2

Now fully automated and compliant with WP standards :-)

You can add extra comment fields automatically using the plugin, make them public or private, and make them mandatory or not.

Use radio, text fields or dropdowns! Lots of options :-)
