Currently, I have a list of teasers and they have a comment count and an 'Add new comment' link.

That link goes to a dedicated comment page with a URL of the form "/comment/reply/19#comment-form".

However, I want it to go to the actual node which has the comment form at the bottom (eg. "/node/19#comment-form").

Maybe this can be done is the template.php or some other way. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.


Go to the admin page for your content type


and check Show reply form on the same page as comments under Comment settings.

If you look at comment_node_view() in the comment module, you can see where the comment link is added to teasers.

    if (user_access('post comments')) {
      $links['comment-add'] = array(
        'title' => t('Add new comment'),
        'href' => "comment/reply/$node->nid",
        'attributes' => array('title' => t('Add a new comment to this page.')),
        'fragment' => 'comment-form',

To alter the link you can use hook_node_view_alter() in your module.

function MODULE_node_view_alter(&$build) {
  $node = $build['#node'];
  if (isset($build['links']['comment']['#links']['comment-add'])) {
    // Alter the 'Add new comment' link.
    $build['links']['comment']['#links']['comment-add']['href'] = "node/$node->nid";
    // Fragment is the '#comment-form' part of the url.
    $build['links']['comment']['#links']['comment-add']['fragment'] = 'comment-form';

  • Thanks for the reply but I've already got the comment form showing on the node page. I want the 'Add New Comment' link on the teaser to go to that node page (and not the dedicated Comment page it currently does go to). – Podsnap Jan 26 '15 at 15:38
  • I added a description how to alter the Add new comment link. – Marcus Aschan Jan 27 '15 at 10:46
  • Thank you so much Marcus. This did exactly what I wanted. I had to put single quotes around the #node on the second line, so the line was: $node = $build['#node']; but otherwise it worked wonderfully, thank you. – Podsnap Jan 29 '15 at 10:12
  • @MarcusAschan this works great, but would you happen to know how to add HTML to the 'title' (that on default renders 'Add new comment')? I'm trying to add a FontAwesome icon (<i class="fa fa-comments" aria-hidden="true"></i>) before this and it's currently showing up as plain text. – WebMW Sep 28 '17 at 18:26

    @WebMW you should be able to render HTML by adding $build['links']['comment']['#links']['comment-add']['html'] = TRUE;. You can check the documentation for theme_links for more options. – Marcus Aschan Oct 4 '17 at 7:38
