Highlight author's comments, consistently!

  1. Hi all,

    I have noticed that Thematic, by default, highlights the post author's comments in yellow. However, I have noticed that my comments aren't always in yellow. I'm the author of every post, so I don't know what is making the difference.

    Here's an example of a post in which my comment is highlighted properly: http://cookieandkate.com/2010/succulents-in-pink-and-green/#comments
    Here's an example of a post that does not highlight my comment: http://cookieandkate.com/2010/halloween/

    Is there a better way to specify that my comments should always be highlighted? What can I do?

    p.s. I figured out how to change my comment background from yellow to pale pink by inserting the following code in my child theme's style.css:
    #comments-list li.bypostauthor { background-color: #FCEAEA !important; }

    That is the only change I've made to purposefully affect the comment coding.

  2. hmm strange. the halloween comment hasn't generated the bypostauthor class?
    did you update thematic during the 8th and 22nd november?
    i'll be honest, i'm at a loss to why. i'm sure someone will shed some light.

    It appears that you posted one comment when logged in as admin and the other when not logged in (on the same computer or another computer or smartphone). You just typed in your name (kate) and your email and so it shows your gravatar but doesn't recognize that you are the same as author. I cannot think of any other reason.

  4. Hm. Vasudeva, it's certainly possible that I commented without first logging in. Is the only solution just to make sure I log in first? I use my iPhone a lot.

    You should login before commenting to ensure that wordpress recognizes you as the author.

    Like I said earlier, commenting using the same name and email id (without logging in) will show the same gravatar and name against your comment, but will not highlight the comment.
