I have found how to highlight comments made by author of the post. However, could not achieve to attach simple text saying this is author for each comment replied by the author of the post.


you can compare user_id to the author id, an then add your text.

global $post;
if ( $comment->user_id === $post->post_author ) { echo 'Author'; }
