    Hi there,

    In that case you’d need a child theme and copy this function in the child theme’s function.php

    if ( ! function_exists( 'generate_comment' ) ) {
    	/**
    	 * Template for comments and pingbacks.
    	 *
    	 * Used as a callback by wp_list_comments() for displaying the comments.
    	 */
    	function generate_comment( $comment, $args, $depth ) {
    		$args['avatar_size'] = apply_filters( 'generate_comment_avatar_size', 50 );
    
    		if ( 'pingback' == $comment->comment_type || 'trackback' == $comment->comment_type ) : ?>
    
    		<li id="comment-<?php comment_ID(); ?>" <?php comment_class(); ?>>
    			<div class="comment-body">
    				<?php _e( 'Pingback:', 'generatepress' ); // WPCS: XSS OK. ?> <?php comment_author_link(); ?> <?php edit_comment_link( __( 'Edit', 'generatepress' ), '<span class="edit-link">', '</span>' ); ?>
    			</div>
    
    		<?php else : ?>
    
    		<li id="comment-<?php comment_ID(); ?>" <?php comment_class( empty( $args['has_children'] ) ? '' : 'parent' ); ?>>
    			<article id="div-comment-<?php comment_ID(); ?>" class="comment-body" <?php generate_do_microdata( 'comment-body' ); ?>>
    				<footer class="comment-meta">
    					<?php
    					if ( 0 != $args['avatar_size'] ) {
    						echo get_avatar( $comment, $args['avatar_size'] );
    					}
    					?>
    					<div class="comment-author-info">
    						<div class="comment-author vcard" <?php generate_do_microdata( 'comment-author' ); ?>>
    							<?php printf( '<cite itemprop="name" class="fn">%s</cite>', get_comment_author_link() ); ?>
    						</div><!-- .comment-author -->
    
    						<div class="entry-meta comment-metadata">
    							<a href="<?php echo esc_url( get_comment_link( $comment->comment_ID ) ); ?>">
    							</a>
    							<?php edit_comment_link( __( 'Edit', 'generatepress' ), '<span class="edit-link">| ', '</span>' ); ?>
    						</div><!-- .comment-metadata -->
    					</div><!-- .comment-author-info -->
    
    					<?php if ( '0' == $comment->comment_approved ) : ?>
    						<p class="comment-awaiting-moderation"><?php _e( 'Your comment is awaiting moderation.', 'generatepress' ); // WPCS: XSS OK. ?></p>
    					<?php endif; ?>
    				</footer><!-- .comment-meta -->
    
    				<div class="comment-content" itemprop="text">
    					<?php
    					/**
    					 * generate_before_comment_content hook.
    					 *
    					 * @since 2.4
    					 *
    					 */
    					do_action( 'generate_before_comment_text', $comment, $args, $depth );
    
    					comment_text();
    
    					/**
    					 * generate_after_comment_content hook.
    					 *
    					 * @since 2.4
    					 *
    					 */
    					do_action( 'generate_after_comment_text', $comment, $args, $depth );
    					?>
    				</div><!-- .comment-content -->
    			</article><!-- .comment-body -->
    		<?php
    		endif;
    	}
    }

    Would it work if I add the code in the Code Snippets plugin?

    Unfortunately not. I actually just tested this and confirmed with Tom.

    Child theme is needed until we add a filter in the future.

    Thanks!
