    Why is it that my comments page doesn't pop up into a new little window like everyone else's do. I can't find anything about this anywhere and what I have found is like reading greek. Can someone show me how to make my comments opo up into a new little window? Also how can I get my comments link to line up on the left side instead of the right? Thank you guys so much.

    Thank you for this. It's what I've been looking for, but now that I have implemented it, I get this :
    Error: This file cannot be used on its own.

    Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

    Missychele,

    In your index.php file, look for this line near the top:
    <?php //comments_popup_script(); // off by default ?>

    Change it to:
    <?php comments_popup_script(); // off by default ?>
    (remove the first two //)

    Yes, I know. I did change the line. That's when I got the error. I changed it just as it was called for. Unless somewhere along the way I changed something else pertaining to this it should be working. You can check my code, http://www.stripedpinkbunny.com/blog

    I just visited your site and the comments popped up as expected. :)

    They come up for you? How come when I click on the comments link I get a pop-up which states there is an error? Something's not right.

    Not sure. Maybe delete your cookies, and refresh your cache. Are you allowing JavaScript as well? Have you tried it from another computer if you have access to one?

    I've been having problems with this computer since I set it up. Apparently, it is a problem on my end. But, I don't how to fix it. Where would I go to check the javascript?

  9. My only suggestion would be, "Don't use IE", but I know that's a lot to ask.
