  • I have my site skinned. But I can’t figure out how to skin the comments to make them match each skin. Does anyone know of a way to do this ?

  • Do you have pop-up or inline comments? Also, what style of skinning do you use?

    It’s easier to use inline comments and edit the wp-comments.php file.

    I have popup comments but I can change them to inline comments. I’m using the skinning tutorial from

    My pop-up comments are skinned, but I only know how to do it using the php stylesheet switcher from A List Apart.

    Add the selectors from wp-comments.php into your CSS file.
    Here is a partial list that you could add to your CSS:
    #comments – styles the title
    #commentlist – styles the ordered list of comments < ol >
    #comment- – the dash is part of the selector…this styles each comment by number
    #commentform – self-explanatory
    I’m not sure why inline comments are easier than popup comment.

    Inline comments are easier as they take from the main .CSS for the comments. I have comments as a declaration and I just pull it from the .CSS for the pop-ups and the inlines.
    Melissa, you can use a switcher to change the comment skins, but I always had a basic generic skin to match all my skins. I don’t have skins on my blog right now. You can look around the net to get the code for that.

    Actually you have inline comments if you have a permalink on your blog entry. I have that set up for inline comments if I have a long entry and have “more” as well. 🙂 I have pop-up comments too!
