How to change default Speak Your Mind comment text in StudioPress Genesis

If you are using the StudioPress Genesis Theme Framework for your WordPress site, you may want to change the default comment text that says “Speak Your Mind” when you first install your Genesis Framework theme. Just add this WordPress Code Snippet to the functions.php file in your current WordPress theme in order to change the default “Speak Your Mind” text in your comments section.

 * Change default comment text in StudioPress Genesis
 * @author
 * @link
function change_default_comment_text($args) {
    $args['title_reply'] = 'Leave a Comment';
    return $args;
add_filter( 'genesis_comment_form_args', 'change_default_comment_text' );

You can either use this exact code to say Leave a Comment instead of Speak Your Mind, or you can change Leave a Comment to whatever you would like your Comment Intro Text to say. Hope this helps, enjoy!
