  • Hi,

    I'm trying to find the code that is output by the [[+comments]] and [[+comments_form]] placeholders. Can anyone direct me to it please?

    I need to change the comments form so that the logged in user's email address is readonly in the form.

    Thanks.
    John

    This question has been answered by donshakespeare. See the first response.

      Why do you want to show users their email but disable them from changing it on the fly? You might as well use if statements to remove the field completely for logged in users since readonly fields can easily be altered client-side.

      Anyway this is what you are looking for:

      Go to your Articles container page --> Advanced Settings --> scroll down to Comments-->Display Reply [Form Chunk:]
      The default is something like quipAddComment
      Just change that default to your own.
      See http://rtfm.modx.com/extras/revo/quip/quip.quipreply/quip.quipreply.tpladdcomment

      Create a new Chunk with a name say, myQuipAddComment
      [[+preview]]
