Sorry if the title was confusing, I'm having a bit of trouble explaining here. I'm working on a theme for my site, and I'm using a slightly modified version of a custom comments template found here. The style I have in mind for comments is this:

  1. Top Level comment 1

    1. Child comment 1

    2. child comment 2

    3. Child comment 3

  2. Top level comment 2

  3. Top level comment 3

AKA I want the child comments to be even/odd, but I want the main thread comments all to be alike. My problem is that when a new comment is added at the top, the child comments get offset. So instead of being the above, it turns into:

  1. Top Level comment 1

    1. Child comment 1

    2. child comment 2

    3. Child comment 3

  2. Top level comment 2

  3. Top level comment 3

Which is undesirable. How can I make it so the child even/odd classes are unaffected by new main comments?

Thanks.

Remove .even & .odd class styles from style.css and use CSS psudo classes.

.comment:nth-child(2n) {
    your styles for even
}

.comment:nth-child(2n+1) {
    your styles for odd
}

  • I have tried that, but I can't figure out how to make the nth-child carry over to all of the child comments. They end up affecting every element that is a child, and not just the <article> tags I want changed. – Aaa Sep 7 '14 at 17:13
