edits to comments.php in suffusion don't stick

  • 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, http://www.keepsakecrafts.net. 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: http://keepsakecrafts.net/blog/2011/01/14/quick-and-easy-gift-project-mobius-scarves/#comments, 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: http://www.gudphoto.com/bikenyc

    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.
