    Hello,

    I would like to customize the Comments for News. If a comment's author belongs to a specific Role, the comment should have a specific CssClass. Then we can highlight comments from "special" users of our site. Can this be done with sitefinity?

    I have successfully extended the CommentList control for the News module, but can't figure out that is next.

    Please help,
    Dmitri

    Solved it, one can edit the Sitefinity\ControlTemplates\News\Modes\ListPageDetails.ascx template for a news item, within the repeater commentsList:

    <%#System.Web.Security.Roles.IsUserInRole(DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.Owner"), "experts").ToString() %>
