That’s my question. A bigger question is who doesn’t like the new comment_form function in WordPress 3.0? As you can see, my comment form now is in mad libs form. All of this is from a plugin that I will release later this week. In the mean time, you can check out the beta code at it’s Mercurial repository.  Why don’t you leave a comment and tell me if you like it?

UPDATE:  I’ve changed it so the form fields will auto expand a bit.  beta 2 is now available from the repository.

  1. Thanks for this Aaron! I’ve been waiting for someone to give an example of how to use the new comment_form filter.

    1. With all the great changes in WordPress 3.0, I think this ranks as the most unappreciated enhancement. I’ll have a post up soon going into a bit of detail as to how it works.

  2. I love Mad Libs! I would love to be able to make full fledged stories with this little add-on. But the code looks all confusing to me. 🙁 Any chance it’ll be written in such a way?
