This function executes in the comments-[post_type].php file and loads the custom post type comments respond form. This function can be overridden and replaced with your own comments form.


This hook provides no parameters. You use this hook by having your function echo output to the browser, or by having it perform background tasks. Your functions shouldn’t return, and shouldn’t take any parameters.
