ohmster: it sounds like there is some out-dated documentation somewhere - where did you see the reference to "templates/main"? marcotics is right, "templates/default" is the right place, and any changes you make there will show up in all templates (unless the template overrides the commentform.template file (some templates do, so you need to erase the one in the template directory, or set the administration option to look in the default directory before looking in the template specific directory (I believe the default is the other order)).
I know that the life of an open source developer is a very hard live. The workload is unbearable and the pay stinks because there is none, other than personal satisfaction and that can be a mighty great reward in itself. I by no means intend to come down on you or be hard on you Jon, and yes, I do believe that you are incredibly busy.
The templates/main thing I am talking about is right on the wiki page where you directed me to go for answers. You advised me to check the wiki and when I did check it for the "authimage" plugin, here:http://wiki.lifetype.net/index.php/Plugin_authimage
This is what it says in the Configuration
section:If you're running LifeType 1.2, there is no need to perform any additional steps as long as your blog is using the site-wide commentform.template file located under templates/main/.
In LifeType 1.2.10 there is no \templates\main\ but there is a \templates\default\ and I am assuming that is the template in question. But that is not what it says, literally, on the wiki page.
I see that I have two other message reply emails in my inbox so hopefully one of them has to do with hidden input. I cannot get that plugin to work, show a field, provide instructions that make sense to me (So I will know what to expect and see and how to use it). If not, I will post again with specific questions and be patient. Thanks Jon!
