#2748 closed enhancement (fixed)

Add .bypostauthor class CSS

Here is my CSS suggestion for a .postauthor class. We will probably want this changed with new comment styling for 1.3 but should at least get something in there to link up with that class.

ol.commentlist .bypostauthor{
	background: #EEEEEE;
	padding: 10px 10px 0px 0px;
	border: 1px solid #EEEEEE;
	-moz-border-radius: 3px;
	-webkit-border-radius: 3px;
	border-radius: 3px;

Attached image of what it looks like.

I think the grey colour was a bit too heavy to use that much of it, and I didn't easily see the lighter-coloured borders line. I've put up a patch and picture based on your concept, but applied to the author's name area.

Cool that works and like it a lot.

My only concern is the notes from Theme Review are not clear and say include class but don't say if has to be a full class. That said I don't see the argument against a reference like this as it's still showing what is a post author.

I agree though in hindsight not sure a full on class works with the current comment styling at all. Unless you add padding and have same background to border (then loosing border) like I did example it looks odd. I guess only running through test will tell us if this is acceptable - I as said think worth questioning why if fails.

Another option thinking this morning would be changing border colour on the avatar.

Changing a comment avatar's border colour for the post author would create an inconsistency with the post's author avatar at the top of the page.

This will need patching once we get the updated comment styles (to match the activity stream styles).
