Hi guys, i am not here to slag off the reasons why i was soft rejected because to be honest the reviewer was 100% correct on the reasons.

The question i am asking is one of the reasons was that the comment form is not using the comment_form() function, instead going for my own customised version which still works with no errors.

The question is do i really need to do this.

I see there are alot of new, high profile themes on here which do not use this.

I know this because i have purchased a couple for a client a few weeks back.

I have corrected the other reasons which the reviewer stated, just wondered about this comment function.

If i use the comment function it means i will have to change the layout design of the comment form which i designed for the theme slightly to accommodate the default elements.

Thanks

comment_form() is standard like wp_head(), wp_footer()

comment_form() can be customized in any possible way, I can’t see why you’d use your own function, there’s no point in reinventing the wheel

try something like this:
<?php 
if( !function_exists('custom_comment_form_function') ) {
  comment_form(); 
} else {
  custom_comment_form_function();
}
?>

I guess, this way you shouldn’t have any problem getting accepted, cause core comment_form() function wont be removed.

I’ve done it myself, with custom pagination :)
