    Is is possible to set the default of the comment form to the expanded mode?

    I don't mind doing a code hack.

    I'd also like to have this option.

    This thread seems to indicate it isn't possible.

    As mentioned in the previous thread, it isn't possible at the moment. However, we took note of this feedback!

    I was able to get this to almost work by adding these lines to index.php.

    <?php $withcomments = 1 ?>
    (below the get_header(); block)

    <?php comments_template(); ?>
    (above the <?php endwhile; ?> line)

    The net effect is it leaves the comments open, but the unfortunate side effect (at least on my theme) is that the large grey box is there all of the time, even before the user starts typing in. Haven't figure out a way to get rid of it.

    I was looking for the same trick. I have an image in the bottom right corner of my #respond div, and I would like to auto expand it in order to don't truncate the picture.

    Please check this option.. Is a necessary option, considering that box is too small, and people can miss it...
