[plugin] [ORPHAN] ajw_comment_alt

Summary

Alternates output based on even- or odd-numbered comments. Intended usage is from within default comment form. Another plugin solution (much more powerful) would also be to use zem_nth. This functionality was previously accomplished through Jon Hicks’ tricks.

Download latest version: ajw_comment_alt (v0.2)

Read the Documentation

Requires:

  • 1.0RC3 (rev 180 or greater)
  • If you are using Textpattern 1.0RC3 rev142 thru rev179, you will need to perform a one-line edit of <code>/textpattern/publish/comment.php</code>, as outlined in this Textpattern Forum thread (allows for plugin parsing in comments)

Attributes

even (optional)

Some other text to be output instead of ‘even’.

odd (optional)

Some other text to be output instead of ‘odd’.

Examples

Ideally, this is meant to be used in your default comment form. While it is possible to use this plugin with the default <ol> formatting of comments, you’ll be able to do much more fun things if you switch off numbered list formatting in admin->preferences.

Ex. 1

<div class="<txp:ajw_comment_alt />"> 
    ...other comment form stuff...
</div>

results in >>>

<div class="odd"> 
    ...other comment form stuff...
</div>

<div class="even"> 
    ...other comment form stuff...
</div>

Ex. 2

<div class="<txp:ajw_comment_alt even="foo" odd="bar" />"> 
    ...other comment form stuff...
</div>

results in >>>

<div class="foo"> 
    ...other comment form stuff...
 </div> 
 <div class="bar"> 
    ...your txp comment tags would go here...
 </div>

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] ajw_comment_alt

Andrew, this plugin works great!

However in 4/01, it produces <code><div><div class=“even”>…some comment…</div></div>
<div><div class=“odd”>…some comment…</div></div></code>

Is there a way to get rid of the superfluous divs?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] ajw_comment_alt

I’m not sure what’s causing the superflous divs in comment output They are added by Textpattern itself and unrelated to this plugin, details here.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] ajw_comment_alt

Sorry, this is probably something simple, but I’m trying to get this implemented, but I get the following error:

tag_error <txp:ajw_comment_alt/> -> Textpattern Warning: unknown_tag

I haven’t done the one-line edit to the code, because I don’t know how to tell if I am using Textpattern 1.0RC3 rev142 thru rev179. I’m using TXP 4.0.3. Do I need to do this edit?

Thoughts? (Sorry again, I’m still quite new to all this).

Nevermind. I’m stupid. I didn’t realize plugins had to be turned on…

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] ajw_comment_alt

Hi,

I was wondering if it’s possible to set a different style for an admin’s comment? I’m looking to not only alternate the styles for odd/even, but to also set something else when it’s the admin posting (perhaps by setting a specific email address, etc.) – can this be done, and if so, how?

Thanks for any help you can give me!
