    The privacy checkbox that says “save my name, email and website in this browser for the next time I comment” is not appearing in the comment section… I checked both logged in, not sure why, but I did and logged out. Is this a theme issue?

    The same is true in the Fluida Pro theme.

    Good morning Michael, how did you solve the problem? I don’t know what can I do. Thanks

    Sorry, I have not solved the problem. It still exists in both themes.

    Our themes use customized comment form fields and will need to be updated to support the new GDPR-related checkbox.

    We have already updated Kahuna and we will publish new updates for all other themes as soon as possible.

    It works for Fluida Plus now, but haven’t seen it for Tempera yet either. 🙂

    All current theme releases (available today) display the GDPR-related checkbox in the comment form, except Nirvana which we are still working on.

    @Zed

    is there maybe a way to remove this GDPR checkbox by adding a some code to functions.php?
    I tried this snippet:

    function remove_comment_fields( $fields ) {	
    	unset( $fields['cookies'] );		
      	return $fields;
    }
    add_filter( 'comment_form_default_fields', 'remove_comment_fields' );

    bit it didn’t work for me.
    And maybe something to remove the email field as well?
    I would like to remove both, the email field and GDPR checkbox, so I can avoid, that any cookies will be set (this happen only after GBPR box is checked on) and improve the privacy by not saving the email adress.
    The simple removal of email field in comments.php is not working, the field still remain required and the comment will not be sent.
    I tried this snippet to remove the email field:

    function remove_comment_fields( $fields ) {	
    	unset( $fields['email'] );
    	unset( $fields['cookies'] );		
      	return $fields;
    }
    add_filter( 'comment_form_default_fields', 'remove_comment_fields' );

    bit it didn’t work for me, too.
    If you have some idea, I would be happy for any help.

    The themes are filtering WordPress’ form fields. You might need to use a later priority (11+) to make your code apply after the theme’s own filters are processed.

    @zed: what’s the news on Nirvana? It’s been a while, my website is down because of this. I’d be grateful for an update.

    @Bettina: Nirvana’s 1.4.5 release (published two weeks ago) includes the comment form checkbox fix.
