Well there was a problem that I found as I looked at the styles that needed to be set. Now there is a 1.3 version of WP Comment Quicktags Plus Plugin. I changed the main div’s styling from a class=”comment_quicktags” to an id=”comment_quicktags”. Then I changed the styles to ids (#) instead of classes (.). This solved a problem where the input / input:focus styles were not being passed through from the main div (comment_quicktags) to the quicktags toolbar div (ed_comment_quicktags). Now for some reason, the id (#) styles are working just fine since the class (.) styles weren’t. If anybody has any idea as to why this was happening, please let me know!
You may download the new plugin below:
Well I added some documentation to the install steps for issues with the comment textarea and users not having the quicktags toolbar adding tags to the comment textarea. New version is 1.4 and you can download below:
