Change Wording of Comment Section

    Hi, Is there a way to change the wording of my comment section? Instead of (+ add yours) I would like it to say (What’s the business?) I would also like to change the color. I’m trying to find that section of code but it’s a little confusing for me, or if someone could help me with a code to achieve this I would be so grateful.

    Thank You

    The blog I need help with is


    The text itself is set in the underlying theme PHP script files and we cannot modify those. The following will allow you to change the color, but it also changes the color of the “leave a reply” right above the comment reply box.

    #comments h3, #comments h3 a {
    color: #CC0000;

    If you wanted the “leave a reply” to remain the blackish color, then you could add this to change it back to the original color.

    #comments h3#reply-title {
    color: #483F32;

    Here’s a trick to modify the text using CSS. :)

    #comments h3 em,
    #comments h3 em a {
    	visibility: hidden;
    #comments h3 em a:before {
    	visibility: visible;
    	content: "(What's the business?)";

    Add that code to your Appearance → Custom Design → CSS editor.


    Whoa, copying that to my CSS bits file.



    Wow! Thanks so much! You guys are awesome!
