    [comment_content] => Zodra er een enquête beschikbaar is die bij jou past, ontvang je een e-mail. Je kunt dan zelf bepalen of je die enquête wel of niet gaat invullen. Voor elke ingevulde enquête krijg je punten. Deze punten verschillen per enquête en hangen onder andere af van hoeveel tijd het onderzoek in beslag neemt. Nadat je de enquête hebt ingevuld, wordt de beloning vaak al binnen een paar minuten bijgeschreven op je account.

To get a ID of the comment, for example, you should use such record:

$comment_ID = $comment->comment_ID;

Useful Comment functions:

get_comment_ID(); // wrapper for $comment->comment_ID
get_comment_author( $comment_ID = 0 ); // retrieves the author of the current comment. If the comment has an empty comment_author field, then 'Anonymous' person is assumed.
get_comment_author_email( $comment_ID = 0 ); // filters the comment author's returned email address. Wrapper for $comment->comment_author_email.
get_comment_author_email_link( $linktext = '', $before = '', $after = '', $comment = null ); returns the HTML email link to the author of the current comment
get_comment_author_link( $comment_ID = 0 ); // retrieves the HTML link to the URL of the author of the current comment
get_comment_author_IP( $comment_ID = 0 ); // filters the IP address of the author of the current comment. Wrapper for $comment->comment_ID
get_comment_author_url( $comment_ID = 0 ); // retrieves the URL of the author of the current comment
get_comment_author_url_link( $linktext = '', $before = '', $after = '', $comment = 0 ) // retrieves the HTML link of the URL of the author of the current comment
get_comment_date( $d = '', $comment_ID = 0 ); // retrieves the comment date of the current comment. $d is optional. The format of the date
get_comment_excerpt( $comment_ID = 0 ); // retrieves the excerpt of the current comment
get_comments_link( $post_id = 0 ); // retrieves the link to the current post comments
get_comments_number( $post_id = 0 ) // retrieves the amount of comments a post has
get_comments_number_text( $zero = false, $one = false, $more = false ); // displays the language string for the number of comments the current post has
get_comment_text( $comment_ID = 0 ); // retrieves the text of the current comment
get_comment_time( $d = '' ); // retrieves the comment time of the current comment. $d is optional. The format of the time
get_comment_type( $comment_ID = 0 ); // retrieves the comment type of the current comment. Wrapper for $comment->comment_type
comments_open( $post_id = null ); // determines whether the current post is open for comments
comments_template( $file = '/comments.php' ); // load the comment template specified in $file. Default template can be rewriten in the current theme


WordPress has other important comment functions, but they have many basic settings for the configuration which are passed in the array. Here is some of them:

wp_list_comments( $args = array(), $comments = null ); // used in the comments.php template to list comments for a particular post
comment_form( $args = array(), $post_id = null ); // outputs a complete commenting form for use within a template
