In this screencast we jump back into Photoshop and design the comment form itself. As in, the inputs and textarea users need to fill out to leave a comment. This is placed by default at the end of the comment thread, way at the bottom of the page. Although, it can jump up higher in the thread if a user clicks a Reply link.

We look at the v9 design to give us a reminder of what it looks like now. Then we look at some existing form elements in the v10 design. There isn't much to look at, but there is an input in the search area at the top of the page. That input has a blocky 3D "sunken" look we accomplish with a few intersecting borders. We decide to use this same look for inputs in the comment form.

We also recycle the look of the search submit button for the submit comment button. It's not being lazy, it's being efficient and consistant.

Submit a Comment

Posting Code

You may write comments in Markdown. This makes code easy to post, as you can write inline code like `<div>this</div>` or multiline blocks of code in triple backtick fences (```) with double new lines before and after.

Code of Conduct

Absolutely anyone is welcome to submit a comment here. But not all comments will be posted. Think of it like writing a letter to the editor. All submitted comments will be read, but not all published. Published comments will be on-topic, helpful, and further the discussion or debate.
