Comments in WordPress

Comments allow your website’s visitors to have a discussion with you and each other. When you activate comments on a Page or post, WordPress inserts several text boxes after your content where users can submit their comments. Once you approve a comment, it appears underneath your content. Whether you want to customize how your receive comments or tweak how your site displays comments, WordPress provides a thorough set of options to build a community from the visitors to your site.

Anatomy of a Comment

Depending on your site’s settings, comments display slightly differently from site to site. The basic comment form includes:

  • Name
  • Email
  • Website
  • Comment

Once a visitor submits his or her comment, WordPress follows your preferences and either holds the comment for your approval or posts it immediately.
