#15050 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

bypostauthor class does not work when logged off

I´m not 100% sure if this is a bug...

WP automatically adds the css class .bypostauthor when the author post a comment while he´s logged in.

But if the author is logged off and filling in the same name & e-mail (that he´s using for his wp-account) into the commentform the class is not added.

There is no query that compares the commentposters e-mail with the one of the author.

So it´s difficult to make use of the bypostauthor-class to style comments because authors are not always logged in when they reply to a comment.

Maybe there´s a way to include a query for this?

  • Keywords comments bypostauthor class removed

I'm not even convinced this is actually a bug. Allowing just anyone to put in "admin" and "admins email" and then leave comments that are essentially marked as being from that person is not a great idea.

Rather as the other ticket said they should have to log in, to gain such recognition.

Recommend closing this as i'm-not-sure-what.
