Support » Themes and Templates » edits to comments.php in suffusion don't stick

  • sandysewin


    I’ve been using Suffusion and just wanted to tweak it a bit.

    Today I’ve been working on making the “comments” link more obvious. I had no problem editing the stylesheet to change the color to make it a little darker and adding an underline.

    However, I’m also trying to change the wording. I want to change “No Responses” to “Add a Comment,” “One Response” to “One Comment,” and “# Responses” to “# Comments.”

    I changed the wording in comments.php, but the change is not showing up on my site, Can you help me figure out why? I’ve refreshed the page multiple times, looked at in in a new browser, but the change did not seem to stick.

    While I’m at it, I would love to have the comments link at the bottom of the post, as well as at the top, if possible.

    Thanks so much!

  • Actually your changes are sticking. See here:, where you will notice it says:

    2 Comments to “Quick and Easy Gift Project – Mobius Scarves”

    If you are looking to change the text in the links you will have to edit actions.php, in the functions suffusion_post_footer and suffusion_print_post_page_title.



    Thank you, thank you!! That solved it. 🙂

    Hey all,

    I’m using the suffusion theme as well and also want to make the “comments link” more visible/ obvious.

    I was able to change it from “No response” to “Leave a Comment”.

    Now I still want to increase the size and make it bold…

    Where exactely can I do that? (I’m NOT an css/php expert, that is why I don’t really know which function to change.) 😉

    Thanks a lot for any help,

    Simone 🙂

    I had the same question as the original poster. I managed to change the labels of the links (thanks for your response on that!).

    I would love for my “Add a Comment” link to appear at the bottom of each post. Here is my site:

    Thanks for any help! (And great job on the Suffusion theme.)

    Thanks very much for this helpful post !!!



    Simone: What you are looking to do can be done with a modification to the CSS. Use Firefox’s Firebug to find out exactly what code should be modified and include that modification in the Suffusion – BackEnd – Custom Includes.

    Goodcough: Go to Suffusion – Other Graphical Elements – Posts and Bylines and you can set the location accordingly.
