Custom Comment CSS Based on User Role

edited July 2013 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8


I am trying to do something similar to what is described in the post linked below and what is seen when a Vanilla staff person posts in the community forums here.

Can anyone let me know how or where I need to look to edit the PHP to add a new class based on user role? Once that is done, I can handle the CSS myself, but need help with the PHP file location and editing. Thanks so much.




  • Perfect! Thanks so much @Tama!!

    If you want to get rid of that markup at its source, you could comment out the first three functions in the plugin (DiscussionController_CommentInfo_Handler(), PostController_CommentInfo_Handler(), and _AttachTitle()).
