  • in my comments.php there is only COMMENT_ID (),
    I tried “echo get_comment_id()”

    but does not work

    I just want the right order of the comments.
    how do you?

  • Where did you download this theme from?

    has not been downloaded, it is my theme I’m working on.
    I do not understand in what context should be used

    So where did you get the COMMENT_ID() function from? That’s not a template tag or core WordPress function.

    Have you read that page? That function just display the id of the current comment. Have a look at comments.php in Twenty Eleven for an example of what you should be using.

    I tried it, Twenty Eleven uses wp_list_comments, would be fine, we would pass a function to get the ID in the right order (including reply), but then print in the page div or ul/ol
    I do not need.

    I only need the ID of the comments in the right order, I will not print anything.
    I’m trying to write a function to sort the comments, but it’s like re-inventing the wheel, WP already makes this

    I’d suggest that you start by looking for a suitable plugin and hacking/borrowing from it if necessary.

    you mean by hacking?
    I edit core_file of wp?
    write a plugin?

    can you give me the instructions, I do not know where to start

    thank you!

    I edit core_file of wp?

    No! Never, ever, edit WordPress core scripts. And do not encourage others to do so. Editing core scripts can bring down your entire site and/or open security holes for hackers to use.

    I meant you could hack the plugin.

    yes, you’re right, it would be a problem for the next update

    this is my comment.php

    function fake($comment, $args, $depth)
    	$GLOBALS['comment'] = $comment;
    	$GLOBALS['fake'][] = get_comment_ID();

    here is the result in html

    if I use div as an option for style, writes div instead of ul/ol

    Don’t use $GLOBALS in WordPress. What is it that you’re trying to do with that callback function?

    imagined that Global was not a good idea …

    fake() is the only way I’ve found to get the right order of the comments

    What is the right order?

    order of comment in $comments

    You don’t need to do anything! WordPress will order the comments by default if you use wp_list_comment() AND you configure WP to display threaded comments in Settings -> Discussion.
