Tick boxes and text being slightly messy in the comment area

    Hi there,

    I’ve been playing with CSS for Watermark Theme for a while and I got stuck with the comment area.

    1. Below the comment box, under a blog post, it says “
    Notify me of new posts via email.” only; while under a portfolio project, it says both “Notify me of new posts via email.” and ” Notify me of new comments via email.” This is a bit confusing for me. Is there some way to let both sentences appear under a blog post as well?

    2. I managed to fix this on a bigger screen but on a narrower screen or on a mobile screen, a tick box doesn’t stay in the same row as the corresponding sentence. HELP!!

    3. On a mobile screen, right between my “You were thinking…?” text and the comment box, there is a text saying “comment”. Is there some way to remove it?

    Thank you very much.

    A big thank you again to the author as this theme seems to be the perfect template for my website! Cheers!

    Hi there,

    Happy to help you with these.

    1. Unfortunately there isn’t a way to change the text here. This is automatically output by the default WP comment form.

    2. Can you send us a screenshot of what you’re talking about here?

    3. Can you send a screenshot of this as well? I’m unable to see this on your site. Maybe you already removed it?

    Hi there,

    I’ve just released an update that should fix the comment form labels and checkboxes.

    To hide the “comment” text, you might try adding the following CSS:

    .comment-form-comment label { display: none; }
