[SOLVED] How to style the comments title

How to style the comments title, putting the post's name in italic, for example? I mean: 1 comment to <em>the post title in italic</em> . Thanks

I'm having the same problem... Under the post (on the post page) I get the line "1 comment to [name of post]" followed by the comment that has been posted. I would like to change the text and formatting of this line.

Where does one do this?

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks, Zona

JD: Thanks for the reply. I tried editing comments.php with the text you gave me and I got the following where the phrase "1 comment to [name of post]" appeared:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ',' or ';' in /home/thevega4/public_html/wp-content/themes/atahualpa/comments.php on line 24

I'm actually running Atahualpa 3.4.4 and the line you describe as 22 seems to be line 24 in this version given what came up in the error message.

Here is what I see in the preceding lines in my comments.php:

// You can start editing below:
?>

<?php // If there are any comments
if ( have_comments() ) : ?>

<a name="comments"></a><!-- named anchor for skip links -->
<h3 id="comments"><?php // Comment Area Title
comments_number(__('No comments yet to ', 'atahualpa'),
__('1 comment to ', 'atahualpa'), __('% comments to ', 'atahualpa'));
echo get_the_title(); ?></h3>

<?php bfa_next_previous_comments_links('Above'); ?>

I'd like the phrase on my blog to read:
[comment icon] comments (# of comments)

Any other ideas about how to possibly make this change?

Many thanks, Zona

I tried to edit comments.php (line 19-22) and make change :

from...
HTML Code:
<h3 id="comments"><?php // Comment Area Title
comments_number(__('No comments yet to ', 'atahualpa'),
__('1 comment to ', 'atahualpa'), __('% comments to ', 'atahualpa'));
echo get_the_title(); ?></h3>
to...
HTML Code:
<h3 id="comments"><?php // Comment Area Title
comments_number(__('No comments yet to ', 'atahualpa'),
__('1 comment to ', 'atahualpa'), __('% comments to ', 'atahualpa'));?>
<em><?php echo get_the_title(); ?></em></h3>
it works like you want: 1 comment to the post title

is it a right php coding technique or not? I don't know but it works

tried with:
• WordPress 2.9.1
• Atahualpa 3.4.5.1
• Local (offline)

pakacil,
HTML Code:
<em><?php echo get_the_title(); ?></em></h3>
will work the same as
HTML Code:
<?php echo '<em>'.get_the_title().'</em>'; ?></h3>
or
HTML Code:
<?php echo '<em>'.get_the_title().'</em></h3>'; ?>
it all has to do with knowing if you are putting the HTML inside or outside the <?php.......?>
If you are inside, use the ECHO and put the HTML in quotes, if you are outside, just put the HTML up.


Zona,
if I understand what you want, change the code to this
HTML Code:
<?php // If there are any comments
if ( have_comments() ) : ?>

<a name="comments"></a><!-- named anchor for skip links -->
<h3 id="comments"><?php // Comment Area Title
comments_number(__('No comments yet to ', 'atahualpa'),
__('comments (1) ', 'atahualpa'), __('comments(%) ', 'atahualpa'));
echo get_the_title(); ?></h3>

<?php bfa_next_previous_comments_links('Above'); ?>
