1 comment.pages.inc comment_reply(Node $node, $pid = NULL)

Form constructor for the comment reply form.

There are several cases that have to be handled, including:

  • replies to comments
  • replies to nodes
  • attempts to reply to nodes that can no longer accept comments
  • respecting access permissions ('access comments', 'post comments', etc.)

The node or comment that is being replied to must appear above the comment form to provide the user context while authoring the comment.

Parameters

Node $node: Every comment belongs to a node. This is that node.

$pid: (optional) Some comments are replies to other comments. In those cases, $pid is the parent comment's comment ID. Defaults to NULL.

Return value

array: An associative array containing:

  • An array for rendering the node or parent comment.

    • comment_node: If the comment is a reply to the node.
    • comment_parent: If the comment is a reply to another comment.
  • comment_form: The comment form as a renderable array.
