can I create a template such that when anyone clicks to create/reply a comment, the comment text box opens up with a few dot points listed prompting the person to add certain key information before they continue with all their free text ... kind of like a set of fields on a form.
I don't mind if they can still delete the dot point prompts, but I need the prompts to start with.
You'd need to alter the core commenting code to do that - there's a good reason comments don't have that functionality already, they're supposed to be free-form and unguided. If something is important enough to be guided, it generally should go on the page directly!
It is a bit odd I know.
we are using a Space in a conference to collect comments from Users and non-Users in the audience.
Users are obviously identified
but non-Users will have a generic login just for that day but of course they all use the same login so we need to prompt them to complete name/country/email ...
after that it is free text as far as Comments are concerned (no one can edit the main page)
Yes a simple copy and paste from the main page body is the work around
