Using HTML5 Input Types In Your WordPress Forms
If you want to make your WordPress comment forms more user-friendly for mobile users, you might want to consider HTML5 input types.
If you have ever gone to fill out a form on a mobile device, you may possibly have noticed the keyboard changing dependent on what you are filling-in, or where you are typing more specifically. On an iPhone for example, an email field will cause the @ symbol to appear and a url field will show @, a variation of .com and other often-used characters.
This is because in HTML5, form input fields can have types set, other than ‘text’.
However, many WordPress themes are still showing all the fields as type=text and not taking advantage of a really simple function that will fix this.
Open up your functions.php file and add this:
// Switch default core markup for search form, comment form, and comments to output valid HTML5.
add_theme_support( ‘html5’, array(
‘search-form’, ‘comment-form’, ‘comment-list’,
Now save your file, upload it and check out your form on your mobile device.
I found this function in the new twentyfourteen theme – worth having a look! You might also want to have a further look at the WordPress Codex for more on the comment form functions here.other page
