I'd like to extend AddCommentForm so I can output field labels with custom classes. I want to remove 'left' class from label as it conflicts with Foundation but ideally I want to have full control over outputted HTML.

I tried to extend CommentingController in mysite/code but no luck there...

Can I set it up so every field type has it's own .ss template?

How do I do this?

You can have full control over the form markup by providing a custom CommentsInterface file. By default the form part is just dumped out using the standard form template but that doesn't need to be. See for an example of the form markup (you can use <% with AddCommentForm %> to jump into the scope of the add view.
