I've been handed over a design to translate into WordPress plugin & theme. My question is regarding building a custom comment form.
The design used some custom scripts on the comment submit button. It handles 'submitting...' button state, animations, and checks. And it uses an anchor tag
<a> with jQuery's
.bind to submit the form.
I noticed that the
comment_form function of WordPress did not offer a solution to change the submit button. I only needed to remove it as I'm handling it myself.
What made it worse is that WordPress has hard coded
<input name="submit"> into the button, which made it impossible for jQuery to call
.submit (more details on this issue here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/12540953/property-submit-of-object-htmlformelement-is-not-a-function). So just hiding this button with CSS won't work.
If I prefer not to use the
<input type="submit"> button of WordPress comment form, do I have any options to build my own button?
