#36160 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Comment content ul elements have no style in the Comment List Table or Moderate Comment screen

Reported by: rachelbaker Owned by: rachelbaker
Milestone: 4.6 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Comments Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: administration Cc:


In both the Moderate Comment and Comment List Table screens, moderators do not see any list-style formatting in comment content. The comment_content is displayed with the proper unordered list markup, but are displayed with a list-style: none CSS rule.

See screenshots*:

  • in the above screenshots the following text is an unordered list:
<li>As you wish.<li>
<li>Don't underestimate the Force.</li>
<li>Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.
I have traced the Rebel spies to her. Now she is my only link to finding their secret base.</li>

This is because the default styles for ol is (wp-admin/css/common.css):

ol {
	list-style-type: decimal;
	margin-left: 2em;

While the default for ul is:

ul {
	list-style: none;

The following code makes the trick, but I'm not sure if we're missing some place as it is applied only on the comment table:

.widefat .column-comment ul {
	list-style: initial;
	margin-left: 2em;

If we are ok with this solution I'll happily send a patch with the rtl and minified versions.

P.S.: It seems that in Twenty Fifteen the lists within comments are not styled that well: https://cloudup.com/cIW-Bka8Lba (I'll open a new ticket for this one)

No need to patch minified or RTL files, a build task takes care of that.

In 36160.3.patch I applied the same ul style rules from 36160-2.patch to the Moderate Comment screen as well.
