I’d like to change a few things about the comment box and I can’t determine the correct way to do it. Here are the changes I’d like to make.
1. The comment author is followed by “says:”. I found code to remove the “says” part but the colon is still there. I see in genesis/lib/structure/comments.php that it appears that it is hardcoded. The offending code is on line 184. I don’t see that any of it is wrapped in a filter or a hook. Basically I just want it to be “Name” nothing else.
2. I’d like to change the format of the date, but again I see no filters or hooks. This time check out line 188. What I want is just the date, no time.
This would take 1 minute if I edit the genesis code directly, butI’d rather not do that! Can anyone set me straight here?
Maybe the only way is to copy out the genesis_comment_callback() function into my own functions.php, rename it, modify it to my needs, and then run a filter on genesis_comment_list_args to replace the callback entry with my custom one? That seems a bit heavy handed, but perhaps thats the only way. Is that considered correct wrt genesis code practice?
OK, I guess that is the solution. This can be marked as resolved.
I’ve been trying to do the same with regard to the ‘Says:’ element.
Used the snippet to remove ‘says’ but still left with the colon.
Is it possible to remove the colon or is Mikes method the only solution?
I take it that’s a no then!
Dave, I never found a way. I had to toss the entire thing and re-do it for the sake of one colon. Dumb, but there you are.
