Alternating comment row colors in wordpress 3

  • Hi there,

    I want each comment to display a different background color, this is nothing new but none of the old methods seem to work in wordpress 3 – The code seems to have changed since the odd/even method was the standard way to achieve it.

    comments are listed with:

    <?php if ( have_comments() ) : ?>
    	<h2><?php comments_number('No Comments', '1 Comment', '% Comments' );?></h2>
    
    	<ol class="commentlist">
    	<?php wp_list_comments(); ?>
    	</ol>

    Any help appreciated.

    The odd and even classes work for me. Check the page source and you’ll see what classes are being generated.

    esmi: I believe the issue here is to maintain the features implemented by wp_list_comments(); (ie. threaded comments) while having comments of alternating colours.

    Which, incidentally, is what I would like to know how to do as well.

    Well, whatever, I’m using one of the many commenting APIs now.
