Conditionally load class in the comment section of the post page

I want to be able to conditionally load a class containing the word ‘AUTHOR’ in the comments section, next to the name of the person who was the author of the post. I know it has something to do with class bypostauthor, what I’ve got so far is: <?php if $class == ‘bypostauthor’ ?> <div […]

Display on page every post in blog WITH comments

I am trying to create a page which displays all the posts in the blog, with the comments to each post listed below the respective post. By looking around the internet I figured out how to create a page template with the following code: <?php $args = array( ‘numberposts’ => -1); $posts= get_posts( $args ); […]

Customize reply form different to comment form

I have a problem with the comment form, as i’d like to change the style of the reply comment form (the one which opens after the clicking on Reply link of a comment). But I can’t find a way to do it properly, and I don’t want to modify native files from WordPress, such as […]

How does WordPress generate a comment website preview?

Everything works fine and by using add_comment_meta( $comment_id, ‘rating’, $rating ) it gets inserted fine in the wp_commentmeta table. However, when […]

unsetting required fields in the comment reply form

Is there a way to make differences between the normal comment form and the reply-to-form? For example, I added a set of required radiobuttons to the form which make rating by commenting happen. Now, if someone only replies to a rating comment, these radiobuttons should not be required nor displayed in the form. As the […]

Can't reply to comments

I can’t approve or reply to comments via the dashboard. Approving just returns the comments. And quick reply doesn’t work and it says page not found and shows a whole bunch of code in red, nothing too obvious. I deactivated all the plugins but still doesn’t work. So I’m guessing a file is missing because […]
