Adding comments to the blog page (6 posts)

    Hi all..

    I recently purchased a template, but the blog is set up funky. In order to comment you have to click on a teeny tiny icon at the top of the post. Awkward. Can I add comments directly to the blog page?

    thanks. =)

    Probably not an ideal solution, but if you can't find a better one, you can increase the size of the icon by adding the lines below to the end of style.css:

    .comments-link {
       height: 40px;
       width: 40px;
       padding-left: 43px;
       background-size: 40px 40px !important;
    }

    thanks vtxyzzy...I tried that and it's allllmost what i wanted, but the stretching of the icon was just too fuzzy.
    appreciate the input however!

    Of course, you could always use your own icon!

    Just make a .png image the proper size and replace the original at http://marciaarichards.com/wp-content/themes/theme1565/images/comment-bg.png

    Or, upload using the Media Library and add a CSS rule to those I already gave you, like this:

    .comments-link {
       height: 40px;
       width: 40px;
       padding-left: 43px;
       background-size: 40px 40px !important;
       background-image: url("http://marciaarichards.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/mycomment-bg.png") !important;
    }

    You will need to replace the sample URL I used with the actual URL from your upload.

    thanks again vtzyzzy!

    sorry i didn't get back to you yesterday, the dreaded double shift at work!

    I tried to make an image 100x15 and changed your code a bit to reflect it, but it still only showed a small portion of it. I'll try to go back and make a 40x40 image and see if that works....frustrating that they'd make such an important part of a blog so small!

    When I look at your site, I do not see the additional CSS at the end of style.css. When I add it, I see the 'Talk' balloon.
