I've spent a lot of time searching for a decent comment highlighting plugin but have fond none. Most work fine for a single user but use on a multi author blog and things start to go wrong - so I decided to bite the bullet and develop my own system.

Comment highlight generates css classes that you can add to your comments. These classes will tell you...

  1. If the commenter is a registered user or a reader/ commenter
  2. If the commenter is the post author
  3. The commenters user id (assuming they are a registered member)
  4. If the comment is a pingback or trackback
