I would like to reverse the comment pagination numbers so that the newest comments show on page 1 instead of the last page. I did an array_reverse for the comments_array and set the Wordpress Discussion Settings to first page displayed by default - everything works fine except when someone leaves a comment it doesn't take in consideration the array_reverse and it takes the user to the link where the comment would be without the array reverse and obviously the comment is not there.
I noticed that the redirect comes from wp-comments-post.php
$location = empty($_POST['redirect_to']) ? get_comment_link($comment_id) : $_POST['redirect_to'] . '#comment-' . $comment_id;
Is there a way to get the correct redirect link after a comment is submitted? Or is there a simpler way to get the comment pagination numbers reversed? Thanks in advance!
