I'm using the http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/comment_form in my comments. If logged in I'm seeing only the textarea for my comment, not the fields for e-mail and name.


Is it possible to make them visible even when logged in? Why would I want to do that? I'm designing themes and it would be easier for me as a designer to see what visitors see.

  • Hey, did you figure out how to display those fields when logged in? Thanks.

You can filter 'comment_form_logged_in' and return the missing fields.

But there is a much easier way: Open a tab in private browsing modus and visit the same page.

  • I do essentially the same thing. I just use a separate browser (develop in Chrome, view as not-logged-in using Firefox). Commented May 21, 2012 at 18:20
