I need a way to change the encoding type for my comment form, without hacking the core files.

I'm aware of the function to work on the post editing form: post_edit_form_tag.

I've tried this:


But it doesn't work, the only next step I know of is to hack the source code... Any help would be very much appreciated—thanks in advance!

  • How is this not working? Any errors, warnings, strange behavior? The ID is correct? And it is an ID (and not a class)? – tfrommen Mar 11 '13 at 14:58
  • @t f, It's just not doing anything, I'm using an id and it is correct... – Circle B Mar 11 '13 at 16:50
  • Posting answers as comments just results in cluttered comment threads... – Chip Bennett Mar 12 '13 at 19:36

One Trick Pony answered the question, here's his solution:

jQuery('#comment_form')[0].encoding = 'multipart/form-data';

And here's a jsFiddle of it.
