Hi,
I want to be able to change and edit the comment link. Currently is says “leave a reply”. I want to make it friendly and change the txt. How can I do that? I am currently using wordpress theme Twenty Twelve.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks

You can style the link to have a different look by using this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/my-custom-css/
If you have jetpack installed, you should have a custom CSS option, and you can style it differently.

look in your HTML source for the class "comments-link" and you can use a tool like this  http://css-tricks.com/examples/ButtonMaker/#  to change it

First create a child theme http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes
Then you can start editing the file content.php and change the texts in the below code:
<?php comments_popup_link( '<span class="leave-reply">' . __( 'Leave a reply', 'twentytwelve' ) . '</span>', __( '1 Reply', 'twentytwelve' ), __( '% Replies', 'twentytwelve' ) ); ?>
