Description

Inserts a comment to the database.

The available $commentdata key names are 'comment_author_IP', 'comment_date', 'comment_date_gmt', 'comment_parent', 'comment_approved', and 'user_id'.

Also, consider using wp_new_comment(), which sanitizes and validates comment data before calling wp_insert_comment() to insert the comment into the database.

$time = current_time('mysql');

    'comment_author_email' => 'admin@admin.com',
    'comment_author_url' => 'http://',
    'comment_content' => 'content here',
    'comment_type' => '',
    'comment_parent' => 0,
    'user_id' => 1,
    'comment_author_IP' => '127.0.0.1',
    'comment_agent' => 'Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.0.10) Gecko/2009042316 Firefox/3.0.10 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)',
