jQuery Comment Replies
[resolved] Destroys CSS for comments (4 posts)

    Hi,

    Love the plugin — seems to do exactly what I am looking for. My only problem is that when I enable this plugin, it changes the styling of my comments. Everything seems to be out of wack and text goes beyond its container.

    Why does enabling this plugin cause my comments theme to go crazy and how can I fix this...?

    Thanks!

    As described in the readme file, it changes the comments layout, using the comment callback function. It does this because new classes, etc have o be popped in for the jQuery to take and do it's job. You can edit the comment layout however you like,though.

    I don't know what theme you were using before you activated the plugin - but the comment layout is based off of Twenty Twelve, and some additional classes are added. but the settings for the plugin let you do what you need to alter your comment layout. All the info is in the readme file.

    Thank you for the response, but I found a much better alternative.

    Although noted in the plugin documentation, I think its completely unacceptable to distribute a plugin that doesn't integrate with themes and that damages the design integrity — the settings options are minimal and did nothing to restore my comment layout. Looks like this plugin needs a lot more polishing.

    I ended up using this solution and it works FANTASTIC, is easy to add, and uses very little code.

    I take exception with this. I have used this plugin on several of my own client's themes, and it integrates perfectly fine. The only exception is that you have to add a small bit of code to the CSS file (as documented in the readme file) for the .replylink class. This is an addition because the standard comments format does not have a "replylink". It does not damage the design *or* integrity of any theme, if you follow the instructions.

    I'm glad you found an alternative that you're happy with, but to say that my plugin "damages design and integrity" of a layout is completely false. You haven't told me which theme you're using so I can see if there's some sort of conflict I'm unaware of - but I can say with 100% confidence that my plugin *does not* damage anything. I've used it on too many sites - several with custom comment layouts - and it does nothing more than add that extra link, and an extra div container, which requires a bit of styling - as explained very well in the readme file.
