How to Add a Custom Comment Form Title in WordPress

Comments are a great way to increase user engagement on your website. But how do you get people to comment on your articles? There is no one answer to that question, but one thing is certain that you need to make an effort. You can start by styling your comment layout and improving your WordPress comment form to make them look more appealing. In order to get more people to comment, you need to put yourself out there, and ask users to participate. One of the ways you can do that is by having an interesting comment prompt. Most WordPress sites have a boring ‘Leave a reply’ title above comments form. You need to jazz it up a little and be creative. In this article we will show you how to add a custom comment form title in WordPress.

  1. I hate how most of the times, on this website, the answer to “How to do this in WordPress” is: “Install a plugin”.

    I would never install a plugin for such a little customization. If I’d do, I would end up with a thousand plugins and an incredibly slow website.

  2. Well! I think this kind of customization is necessary to Create a good blog. Nice post
