It is here that you will make the change in your comment tag.

Step 3: Change your comment tag

Scroll down until you see the line that says “5 comments”. Delete the word “comments” and enter the word or phrase that you’d like the comment tag to say instead. (For the purpose of this tutorial I’ve chosen “Artists said:” as my phrase.)
