Vine Type Content Management with Standards in Mind

21 Oct 2005


The comment element of a Vine Type template file describes the XHTML produced for each comment comment associated with the current article.

This element should contain at a minimum the $_comment_name or $_commentnamelinked and $_comment_text variables. Other variables concerning post time, and commenter are available as additional dynamic content.


  <h3>comment from: $_commentnamelinked</h3> 

Multiple comments may be associated to the same article. The comments will be sorted as described in the $comment_sort variable in the vinetype.config file, and will be rendered back-to-back, with no between-article markup.

Since multiple comments may be displayed on the same web page, it is recommended that any elements in this section be customized by class attributes and not id attributes. If id attributes were used, Vine Type would render multiple elements with identical id attributes, thereby invalidating your final XHTML web page. Unpredictable results in browser behavior might also occur.
