    Let’s say I make a website where you can make your own account and post comments on the website, how can I make it so that when a specific user has a colored comment every time they post.

    I’m having a very difficult time trying to figure this out.


    This depends very much on the commenting system you’re using, how the user roles/names are determined, in what language the system is done, etc. etc.

    But basically, what you could do is something like this in the code that displays a comment (basic PHP structure):

    if (user == "Bob") {
        echo '<div class="comment green">';
    } else {
        echo '<div class="comment">';
    echo $comment_or_something;
    echo '</div>';

    Then with CSS, you can target the class “green”.
