    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking to hire someone for a quick job.

    I want threaded comments for my wordpress theme which currently does not support them. I have ticked the box in discussions options but to no avail.

    If I replace the contents of comments.php with the default themes comments.php then the threaded comments work BUT I lose all the custom styling of my comments boxes.

    Here is a copy of my current comments.php file http://pastebin.com/JfxYeGDd for reference

    I also have a copy of the blog on a staging area so you can tweak/edit without effecting the live website.

    Plesae respond/pm me with price & turn around time

    Thanks

    Hi,

    That is EXACTLY what I want the only problem is that it then removes the current custom styling.

    I tried to integrate it with the custom styling my theme uses and thats where I hit a brick wall after many hours of trying.

    I can modify code to an ok level, but thats as far as it goes ^^

    Probably 5 minutes work for someone that knows what they are doing.

    I'll pay $25 immediately for this fix.

    $35 if its completed within 24 hours of this post


    Edit: I should also clarify I'm currently using this plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-thread-comment/ to generate the threaded comments you see here http://www.matthewwoodward.co.uk/tips/successful-people-vs-unsuccessful-people-which-one-are-you/

    And that takes care of the styling but it doesn't quite work properly and if you click to reply to a comment that already has a threaded reply it goes a bit whack.

    I also want to remove the plugin and use the native support wordpress has because that provides the neccessary hooks for other plugins I can't use at the moment :)

    Your coding skills are probably better than me. I generally hack out a solution after 48hrs of frustration ! I moved to livefyre for comments a while back. Does look like an easy fix, suprised you have'nt been inundated with pms

    Why don't you use a solution like Disqus or Facebook Comments?

    Oh ok I understand. Maybe for your blog is better not to have Facebook Comments since people dont want to post all their SEO talks on FB. By the way your blog is awesome! :)

    Hi,

    That is one of the other contributing factors to it - I actually asked my readers which they would prefer and they have spoken :p

    Thanks for checking out my blog and your advice in thread :)
