  1. This submit is actually helpful. I am able to override author’, email’ and url’ default settings, but I am not able to override comment_field’, it is getting duplicated, i.e. the default textarea is also appearing with my custom comment textarea. Any help would be appreciated.


  2. Oh and I’m not a Liverpool or Chelsea supporter, but the way the Liverpool fans were still singing You’ll Never ever Walk alone when their team was losing and the game was almost finished was attractive. Big respect.
