    I see the "Show/Hide" Replies text but there is no link and no toggling.

    Before you vote for it as broken (I'm assuming you're the one who did that?) could you give me the opportunity to fix the problem? And as a side note, it's only been tested up to 3.1.4 - you're running it on 3.3.1. It would have been nice to get some kind of bug report before it was marked as "broken" without having the opportunity to check out the problem and fix it, and update it for the current version (which it hasn't yet been tested in, and is noted as such.)

    Actually, I just tested it on a 3.3.1 site, and it works just fine. "Show/Hide Replies" link appears (at the bottom of the post that has replies) and it toggles when you click it.

    The only thing that makes it not work properly is if you have a callback function for your comments in your functions.php file (and you're calling it in your bb_list_comments() call). The bb_list_comments will not override the function you have in place for customizing your own comments layout. But without knowing what code you're using, I can't troubleshoot why it's not working for you. (but it certainly works with default comments, no callback function) It's most likely a class you've added to your callback that's interfering.

    Also, you don't indicate if you tried deactivating other plugins first. Another plugin could be conflicting. (honestly just saying "it doesn't work" doesn't provide much to go on in figuring out what the issue is. Without more information, I can't help you.) but yep - it still works!

    Hi. I would be happy to reverse the vote. I can do that now.

    I am running buddypress and mingle theme. I would love to get this working. How can we work together to do this? If you can get this working for me I will definitely advertise your plugin where I can.

    What specific information do you need from me?

    Well, if I had a link to the site you're having an issue with, that would be a start. I can take a look at the source code and see what's being put out. But additional goodness would be seeing if you're using a callback in your template files ("bb_list_comments(callback=somefunction');"), and if you are, your functions.php file so I can see what the function is putting out. But something of that length, you'd have to email me. So if you *do* have a callback function in your template files, look for it and pop *just that function* over here and I'll take a peek at it, too.

    If it helps (and you want to try and troubleshoot a bit on your own) I had this setup on my site, and I had to change my list output from a div style to the default list style - that was the quick fix.

    I can't get this great plugin to work either. I know it would be an amazing tool, and I'd be more than happy to donate. I just need to get this thing working. :)

    Well, I'd be happy to help, if I had some information. "Can't get it to work" doesn't give me anything to go on at all. How are you putting it in your template files? What call are you using? Are you using the default comment format, or have you used a callback to edit the layout? As with the OP, I *must* have more information to help, otherwise, I can't do anything.

    I know I'm using it on a few 3.4.x versions of WordPress and it's functioning just fine (my own site is one of them).

    EDIT: for the record, I just installed it on a fresh version of WordPress (3.4.1), using Twenty Eleven, and it's still working great.

    Hi Shelly. :)

    I've gotten the Show/Hide Replies to come up now, but for some reason, Show/Hide Replies is just blank text, not a link.

    Any suggestions?

    I'm answering all of this in the other thread, so I don't have to do it in two places :)
