You can find the settings page under Comments > Comment Form in the dashboard.

Remove Fields

  • remove the website field for standard, and non standard comment forms

Change Texts

  • remove the message that emails are not published and which fields are required
  • remove the text about which html tags are allowed
  • insert custom text before the form
  • insert custom text after the form

Layouts

  • use a two columns layout for the comment form

Shortcode

  • [comment-form] shortcode to insert comment form into posts and pages

I am open to your suggestions for more features here or in the github repository
