Help with editing comments.php please?
Firstly thanks for this theme it’s awesome.
I’m trying to use the Simple Facebook Connect plugin and all has gone well. But I need to make an amendment to comments.php so that the Facebook button and the users Facebook profile picture is used instead of the gravatar one. The plugin author’s site says:
To make the SFC-Comments plugin work (on older themes), you need to edit your comments form. This is probably in your themeâ€™s comments.php file.
Find the three inputs for the author, email, and url information. They need to have those IDâ€™s on the inputs (author, email, url). This is what the default theme and all standardized themes use, but some may be slightly different. Youâ€™ll have to alter them to have these IDâ€™s in that case.
Just before the first input, add this code:
<?php do_action('alt_comment_login'); ?>
Just below the last input (not the comment text area, just the name/email/url inputs), add this:
That will add the necessary pieces to allow the script to work.
Note: Newer themes that use the comments_form() function donâ€™t have to add any code added to them at all. The plugin automatically handles that case.
I’ve looked through comments.php but for the life of me I can’t figure out where I’m meant to be inserting this div, any chance of a pointer in the right direction please?
