Is it possible to create a comment template for custom post types? I want the wording for comments on a custom post type to be different for wording on a regular wordpress post.

I tried comments-posttype.php but that didn't seem to work.

  • Could you please go back and actually work on your old questions (comment, comment, comment!). Thanks.

In the single template of the custom post type i.e. "single-posttype.php" (create one if it doesn't exist). In the function comments_template() the first parameter represents the filename, so make it comments_template('/comments_file_name.php');
