    Hello Mansoor,

    You can change the default validation of the Comments form by replacing the template for CommentsDetailView from the Sitefinity backend with the attached file. Please find the attachment, place it inside your SitefinityWebApp project and build it. Then go to the backend of the CMS Administration -> Settings -> Advanced -> Controls -> ViewMap  and create a new one with the following values:

    HostType: Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.GenericContent.Web.UI.Views.CommentsDetailsView, Telerik.Sitefinity

    LayoutTemplatePath: ~/CommentsRequiredEmail.ascx

    In this template I modified the default validation of the email field by setting the Required option to true:

                        DisplayMode ="Write"
                                RequiredViolationMessage="<%$Resources:ContentResources, EmailCannotBeEmpty %>" 
                                MessageCssClass="sfError" />

    If you need any additional assistance on this matter please do not hesitate to ask.

    Does this still work after 6.2?  I have an 8.0 project that i'm trying to override the comments widget submit form behavior and it's ignoring my control.

    Hello Joe,

    As you have noted in the ticket you have submitted related to this, you have managed to map your custom template for the Comments Submit Form by using the following for the HostType: Telerik.Sitefinity.Modules.Comments.Web.UI.Frontend.CommentsSubmitForm

    I also provided the default template for the Comments Submit Form in the ticket for your convenience. I am pasting it here as well:

    <%@ Control Language="C#"  %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI" %>
    <%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" TagPrefix="sfFields" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.Fields" %>

                            MessageCssClass="sfError" />
                    <li class="sfcommentsField sfcommentCaptcha">
                        <comments:RestfulCaptcha runat="server" ID="restfulCaptcha" style="display:none;"/>
                        <sf:SitefinityLabel id="captchaError" runat="server" Text="<%$Resources:CommentsResources, CaptchavalidationError%>" WrapperTagName="p" CssClass="sfError" style="display:none;" />
                <div class="sfcommentsSubmitBtnWrp">
                    <span id="loadingView" runat="server" style="display:none;">
                        <sf:SfImage ID="createLoadingImage" runat="server" AlternateText='Loading' />
                    <asp:Button runat="server" ID="submitCommentButton" Text="Submit" OnClientClick="return false" CssClass="sfcommentsSubmitBtn"  />
    The default template is also available under Design -> Widget Templates in the Sitefinity backend. You can type in the search field Comments submit form and the template should be displayed.
