De-centralized commenting system. (4 posts)

    Hello Forum!
    I have been using WordPress for quite a while now and really like the opportunities it makes for the creators out there. All the themes and plugins that makes WordPress awesome!

    But there's something that have always bugged me; The commenting-system in the default templates are often unnessecary "spacecy". It's an aweful lot of padding and margin if you compare it to Disqus which is rather "compact". The problem is that from what I know, Disqus use a central server for it's system.

    I'm seeking a commenting-system (like Disqus) that does not rely on a central system and store everything localy on my web-server.

    Thanks in advance

    You can change the look of any theme, and its commenting functions, by creating a child theme and entering your own CSS. It's not the comment "system" that determines what the comment pages look like, it's the design of the template.

    Read up on Child Themes here: Child_Themes
    And on styling a comment form here: Styling_Theme_Forms
    And on all of the various template tags for comments here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags#Comment_tags

    Each theme has its own style sheet, which you can edit, or you can create your own. Search the template directory to get an idea of what is already out there.
