.bypostauthor attribution lost after XML import (3 posts)

    I recently had to reinstall my blog, and I only had an .XML-file as a backup. The comments made by me, the author, used to have a different style (the .bypostauthor class) so that other users could easily identify me.

    The problem is that after the XML import, this distinction must have gotten lost - I'm obviously using the same style sheet, but my comments now look like those of a regular user.

    So my question would be, is there any way that I could re-assign my comments to that of the post author?

    Any help would be appreciated greatly!

    I have the same problem. My new comments are getting styled, but I lost the css styling on all of my older comments. I haven't found a solution yet, but am still looking. I'll post back if I find one. ;)

    Ok. I used the method listed here: http://5thirtyone.com/archives/774

    It wasn't easy to implement (I know nothing about php), but it worked.
