The caption "Comment author must fill out name and e-mail" is ambiguous
|Reported by:||gabrielhtc||Owned by:||gabrielhtc|
Users tend to think that if they uncheck that option, the name and email fields will not be displayed.
The caption "Comment author must fill out name and e-mail " in the "Other comment settings" of the Discussion settings is ambiguous.
What is expected
With the current caption, users expect that the name and email fields aren't shown.
What happens instead
The name and email fields are still displayed, but they are now optional instead of being required. Some of the themes do not explain whether the fields are required or optional, so the users think that unchecking the option has no effect.
- Changing the caption to a less ambiguous one such as: "Name and email is optional for guests comments"
- Make sure that the themes show clearly which field is required or not to be able to post the comment.
