Walker_Comment::display_element( WP_Comment $element, array $children_elements, int $max_depth, int $depth, array $args, string $output )

Traverses elements to create list from elements.


Description Description

This function is designed to enhance Walker::display_element() to display children of higher nesting levels than selected inline on the highest depth level displayed. This prevents them being orphaned at the end of the comment list.

Example: max_depth = 2, with 5 levels of nested content. 1 1.1 1.1.1 1.1.1.1 1.1.1.1.1 1.1.2 1.1.2.1 2 2.2
