1bolla CommentoCommenti Jetpack stile senza Jetpack

One of the best things about word­press is the built-in social aspect provided by com­ments. Get­ting your com­ment sec­tion right can be very import­ant to any web­site, includ­ing ours. Over the years we’ve exper­i­mented with vari­ous com­ment plu­gins includ­ing Dis­qus and more recently Jet­pack. How­ever, we’ve always ended up bring things back in house for man­age­ment, per­form­ance and pri­vacy reas­ons. When I moved back from Jet­pack com­ments I really missed some of the slick fea­tures provided by Jet­pack, both the social-net­work logins and the gen­er­al slick styl­ing. Any­way, to cut a long story short I finally had time today to take a good look at how word­press “does” com­ments and fig­ure out a way to build an in-house sys­tem which looks nice and slick like the com­ment inter­face provided by jet­pack. Best of all its sur­pris­ingly simple and does things the “prop­er” way…

First — to deal with the “social” aspect, I’ve resor­ted to a plu­gin called Word­Press Social Login di MiledThere are sev­er­al “social login” plu­gins, but this ver­sion (unlike the oth­ers) keeps everything totally in-house. It is a bit more work to con­fig­ure, but for the bene­fit to our vis­it­ors pri­vacy alone this is well worth it.

Next up was fig­ur­ing out how to change the built-in word­press com­ment form func­tion (fun­nily enough called comment_form()).  I’ll provide more detail later if any­one requests it, for now just find the rel­ev­ant code below…

comments.php (in theme folder)

<!-- You can start editing here. -->

<?php if ( comments_open() ) : ?>

<section id="respond" class="respond-form">
<?php comment_form(); ?>

document.getElementById('hidden-form-area').style.display = 'none';
function myFunction()
document.getElementById('hidden-form-area').style.display = 'block';


<?php endif; // if you delete this the sky will fall on your head ?>

functions.php (in theme folder)

function my_fields($fields)
    $fields['author'] = '<p class="comment-form-author"><input type="text" name="author" id="author" size="22" tabindex="1" placeholder="Name (required)" /></p>';
    $fields['email'] = '<p class="comment-form-email"><input type="text" name="email" id="email" size="22" tabindex="2" placeholder="E-mail (required - never shared with anyone)" /></p>';
    $fields['url'] = '<p class="comment-form-url"><input type="text" name="url" id="url" size="22" tabindex="2" placeholder="Website" /></p>';
    return $fields;

function remove_notice($defaults)
    $defaults['comment_notes_before'] = '';
    $defaults['comment_notes_after'] = '';
    return $defaults;
add_filter( 'comment_form_defaults', 'remove_notice' );

function remove_textarea($defaults)
    $defaults['comment_field'] = '';
    return $defaults;
add_filter( 'comment_form_defaults', 'remove_textarea' );

function add_textarea()
    echo '<p class="comment-form-comment"><textarea id="comment" name="comment" placeholder="Enter your comment here..." onfocus="myFunction()"></textarea></p><div id="hidden-form-area">';
add_action( 'comment_form_top', 'add_textarea', 1 );

function add_hideend()
    echo '</div>';
add_action( 'comment_form_after', 'add_hideend' );
