The wp_list_comments_args hook is a filter that allows developers to modify the arguments passed to the wp_list_comments() function. This is particularly useful when customizing the display of comments for WordPress themes.

By using this hook, developers can modify various arguments such as the depth, avatar size, callback, and more. This hook can also be used to add custom arguments to the wp_list_comments() function.

Here’s an example usage code:

function custom_comment_args( $args ) {
    $args['avatar_size'] = 80;
    $args['style'] = 'div';
    return $args;
add_filter( 'wp_list_comments_args', 'custom_comment_args' );

In this example, we’re using the wp_list_comments_args hook to modify the avatar size and style of the comments output. We’re creating a custom function called custom_comment_args() that accepts the $args parameter which represents the default arguments passed to the wp_list_comments() function.

We’re modifying the $args array to include an avatar_size of 80 and a style of div, and then returning the modified $args array.

Finally, we’re using the add_filter() function to add our custom function as a filter to the wp_list_comments_args hook. This will ensure that our modifications are applied to the wp_list_comments() function.

Overall, the wp_list_comments_args hook is a powerful tool for customizing the display of comments in WordPress themes.
