Support » Plugins » Help adding code to comments.php per Author Highlight plugin

  • Highlighting comments worked for the main user before the upgrade (4 versions). Can someone help me with this?

    I have the Author Highlight Plugin – – to use. And it says to add code into my comments.php. But where? ..and what does the “This is a comment” need to be?

    I included my comments.php at the bottom.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    You need to add this code to your comments.php file (in your theme’s directory):

    <?php author_highlight(); ?>

    It needs to be withing the loop for the comments, and you want to specify it so that it outputs into a class attribute. Something like this:
    <div class=”<?php author_highlight(); ?>”>
    This is a comment.


    <?php // Do not delete these lines
    	if ('comments.php' == basename($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']))
    		die ('Please do not load this page directly. Thanks!');
            if (!empty($post->post_password)) { // if there's a password
                if ($_COOKIE['wp-postpass_' . COOKIEHASH] != $post->post_password) {  // and it doesn't match the cookie
    				<p class="nocomments"><?php _e("This post is password protected. Enter the password to view comments."); ?><p>
    		/* This variable is for alternating comment background */
    		$oddcomment = 'alt';
    <!-- You can start editing here. -->
    <?php if ($comments) : ?>
    	<h3 id="comments"><?php comments_number('No Responses', 'One Response', '% Responses' );?> to “<?php the_title(); ?>”</h3> 
    	<ol class="commentlist">
    	<?php foreach (array_reverse($comments) as $comment) : ?>
    		<li class="<?php echo $oddcomment; ?>" id="comment-comment_ID()?php the_author_link() ?>">
    			<div class="cmtinfo"><em>on <?php comment_date('d M Y') ?> at <?php comment_time() ?> <small class="commentmetadata"><a>" title=""> </a> <?php edit_comment_link('edit this','',''); ?></small></em><cite><?php comment_author_link() ?></cite></div>
    			<?php if ($comment->comment_approved == '0') : ?>
    			<em>Your comment is awaiting moderation.</em>
    			<?php endif; ?>
    			<?php comment_text() ?>			
    	<?php /* Changes every other comment to a different class */
    		if ('alt' == $oddcomment) $oddcomment = '';
    		else $oddcomment = 'alt';
    	<?php endforeach; /* end for each comment */ ?>
     <?php else : // this is displayed if there are no comments so far ?>
      <?php if ('open' == $post-> comment_status) : ?>
