[SOLVED] Quick/Dirty Comment Numbering

Here's how I did a quick comment numbering. No add-ins required, just edit two files (after making backup copies, of course).

Use the Editor to open the bfa_custom_comments.php file. Add the following after about line 4 (the "global $bfa_ata" line):


Code:
global $mycommentnumber;
$mycommentnumber=0;
In the same file, insert code similar to this where you want the comment number to appear ( I put it just before the 'printf" command at about line 25)

Code:
echo "(# " . $mycommentnumber . ") ";
Save the bfa_custom_comments.php file.

Then edit the "comments.php" file. After about line 12 (where it says "You can start editing below"), add these two lines:

Code:
global $mycommentnumber ;
$mycommentnumber = 0;
Save the file, and your comments will have a numbering like this:

Code:
(# 12)
The number will have the same style as the date/time line in the comment. If you want to change that, then use something like this in the bfa_custom_comments.php file:

Code:
echo "<div class = 'mycommentnumberstyle'>(# " . $mycommentnumber . ") </div>";
And then add the 'mycommentnumberstyle' style to the "add CSS/HTML inserts" section in the Atahualpa theme options.

Of course, make a backup copy of the files before you edit them, and save a copy of the changes somewhere so you can re-do them in case of a update.

Enjoy: it's not fancy, but it will work.
