Not too Savy at VS, me an avid RAD user :)
At last i was able to get things ready for my custom web part development.
I created a boolean column called "Anonymous" in my comments list. This automatically places a check box option on the comments post form (webpart).
i guess, i need to add a small logic something similar to this.. somewhere
(comment["Anonymous"] == true)
comment["Author"] = "Anonymous";
Is there a way i can modify the existing New comment webpart on the post.aspx page or Do i need to completely replace the New comment webpart with my custom webpart
Spent some time trying to achieve this using Sharepoint designer. i had some initial luck, tweaking post.aspx page with CAML scripts. Unfortunately, gave up when author information showed up in other places such as search results pages.
I greatly appreciate your help.
