Wordpress Themes - WP Forum at BFA
There will be no more development for Atahualpa (or any other theme), and no support. Also no new registrations. I turned off the donation system. I may turn the forum to read only if it gets abused for spam. Unfortunately I have no time for the forum or the themes. Thanks a lot to the people who helped in all these years, especially Larry and of course: Paul. Take care and stay healthy -- Flynn, Atahualpa developer, Sep 2021

date / time link in comments

I want to disable the link in the date / time stamp for comments, but can't find where to do that. I still want the date / time stamp to show, just not be a link. Suggestions, please.

Dev Env't: XP Pro SP3, IIS 5.1, MySQL 5.1, PHP 5.2.x, WP 2.7.1, Atahualpa 3.3.3, IE 7, FF 3.0.x

Did you know, and I just noticed this the other day on a site with a lot of comments, that clicking on the date scrolls the page of comments? The comment moves to the top of the page. Handy feature requiring less use of the mouse's scroll wheel.

Hope this helps.

You would have to replace
PHP Code:
        <a href="<?php echo htmlspecialcharsget_comment_link$comment->comment_ID ) ) ?>">
        <?php printf(__('%1$s at %2$s','atahualpa'), get_comment_date(__('F jS, Y','atahualpa')),  get_comment_time()) ?></a>
PHP Code:
<?php printf(__('%1$s at %2$s','atahualpa'), get_comment_date(__('F jS, Y','atahualpa')),  get_comment_time()) ?>
in functions/bfa_custom_comments.php

but as fromtheranks mentioned, the link can be useful, just so you know

Thanks for an amazing theme!!

What if I would like to change the color of the date/time line in each posted comment. Where would I make that change? (I've been able to change author and posted comments lines in CSS Inserts using this BFA Post: http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthr...style+comments)

How would I put the AUTHOR(of comment) + DATE/TIME on the same line so it reads something like:

And last question:
How would I move this newly created line below the actual comment content so it reads something like this:

Incredible post. I can't wait for the next one!

If you look at the generated source of a page with comments, you will see something like this
HTML Code:
	<a name="comments"></a><!-- named anchor for skip links -->
	<h3 id="comments">3 comments to Post with thumbnail and image</h3>

	<div class="navigation-comments-above"><a class='prev page-numbers' href='/wordpress/?p=27&cpage=1#comments'>&laquo; Older Comments</a>
<a class='page-numbers' href='/wordpress/?p=27&cpage=1#comments'>1</a>
<span class='page-numbers current'>2</span></div>
	<!-- Comment List -->
	<ul class="commentlist">
			<li class="comment byuser comment-author-admin bypostauthor even thread-even depth-1 clearfix" id="comment-12">
		<div id="div-comment-12" class="clearfix comment-container bypostauthor">
		<div class="comment-author vcard">
				<span class="authorname">admin</span>
				<div class="comment-meta commentmetadata">
		<a href="http://yourdomain.com/wordpress/?p=27&amp;cpage=2#comment-12">
		February 23rd, 2010 at 1:45 pm</a>
        <span class="comment-reply-link"><a rel='nofollow' class='comment-reply-link' href='/wordpress/?p=27&cpage=2&replytocom=12#respond' onclick='return addComment.moveForm("comment-12", "12", "respond", "27")'> &middot; Reply</a></span>				</div>
		<p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Morbi varius vestibulum rutrum. Quisque in ligula lacus, sed scelerisque nisl. Proin congue sodales leo ac eleifend. Curabitur mollis accumsan varius. Donec a velit risus. Integer egestas, sapien in pellentesque sagittis, odio leo posuere turpis, a ultrices quam est sit amet lacus. Nunc at lectus elit, vitae egestas augue. Maecenas auctor tempus leo, vitae egestas magna ornare sit amet. Morbi sollicitudin convallis scelerisque.</p>
if you look, you will see the date is part of an anchor '<a...> that is part of a <div..> with a class comment-meta. With this information, you can construct a CSS Selector and the rules you want to apply.

Apologies -- I'm a little slow on this one... so to change the date color and rearrange the order of the content... I need to write code to put in CSS Inserts and you suggest creating that code from the example of what I see when I view the source code on a page running comments -- is that correct?

Thank you.
