Thanks to Skeen (for the original idea) and Sumaira (for the implementation I’m currently using) on the WordPress forums, I now have alternating background colors for my comments.
I didn’t write my code exactly how he showed it in his example; I used seperate classes (comments-even and comments-odd) to display different colors instead of using an inline style rule in each tag. The second example uses classes instead of background colors, plus uses less code; I’m sold! I’m digging this so far, though I’m a little bit iffy on the colors. What do you think?
