Home Forums CSS styling comments in wp 2.8+ Re: styling comments in wp 2.8+

Yeah all that stuff is standardized now. You CAN change the HTML, but it’s more complicated now needing custom functions and stuff. To change date formatting, you can do that right from your Admin settings though, it’s somewhere in there. Otherwise you can hide stuff via CSS and accomplish just about any design with all the hooks the output provides. If you really want to go old school and write you own comments loop, that is a possibility too. All this, and stuff on comment numbering, in my upcoming book =)
