I don’t know about you, but I didn’t like the way the comments section was looking. So I fixed it up a bit. First, I did away with the comment form that came with this template and replaced it (with some tweaks) with the default WordPress theme’s (“Twentytwelve”) comment form. Next, I got rid of the nested comments. There are a couple of posts that get a lot of comments, and anything beyond three nested comments (replies to replies) looked rather ugly.
Now, all comments are in sequential order, and you’ll have to scroll down to see the newest comments. I was thinking of having the newest comments at the very top of the comments section, but that will still mean that you’ll have to scroll down to follow the conversation. With the oldest comments at the bottom, you can catch up on the conversation as you go. Finally, all the comments are numbered, so you can reply to a comment by writing “@ Person in comment #” or something. Be creative.
I’m working on giving each comment it’s own link so you can reference them in the future. Also, I’m open to suggestions/comments on what works and what doesn’t on this blog. It’s my blog, but you’re my readers. I want you to be comfortable reading here.
