I thought tath if I updated comments-new.php and comments-old.php and saved them in the child folder I could replace "Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time." with a " " on my blog. TO test this I figued to add "xxx" rather than blandk.
<?php else : // comments are closed ?>
<!-- If comments are closed. -->
<h2 id="post-header"><?php _e('xxx ', 'dixi'); ?></h2>
I thought the php file in the child theme folder would get used. What am I doing wrong?
