jQuery Comment Replies

Make your multi-level comment replies show on demand with a slick jQuery slideToggle() action.


  • further troubleshooting issues with bb-toggle-kids.js - issues repaired.
  • tested in default WordPress themes from Twenty Ten to Twenty Fourteen.
  • edited and streamlined options page a bit
  • deprecated the "Callback" in the options page. You can still use it, but I'd move away from it - the next release will probably only have it as a reference and not use it at all.


  • further troubleshoting issues with the repository. Discovered the CDN is not allowed to be added to the plugin, so have reverted back to including the jQuery easing js file.


  • had some issues with updating the WordPress repository (for some reason, wouldn't upload certain files, refused to delete others). Finally got it all sorted. Sorry for the delay.


  • removed local jquery easing library, reverted to cdn
  • edited script to work with TwentyThirteen (TwentyThirteen renamed the 'li.commentlist' to 'li.comment-list')
  • added previously unavailable "div" option.
  • fixed script localization
  • removed the necessity of rewriting the Walker_Comment class. This renders the use of bb_list_comments() unneccessary.
  • previously, there were no styles set for this plugin, but due to popular demand, I've put in a default stylesheet.
  • finally actually figured out how to set up translation correctly. Yay! pot/mo files added.


  • fixed a bug when clicking show/hide made the child divs "bounce"


  • Newly revamped code, been rewritten for WordPress 3.5 and cleaned up a bit.
  • Options page added to make it really easy to edit text, animations, and speed, as well as making other options for wp_list_comments easy to manage.


  • Edited code to better detect what Pages/posts to add the script on.
  • Added text changing functionality to the "Show/Hide Replies" link, so now it'll say "Show Replies" when child comments are closed, and "Hide Replies" when they are open.


  • Edited readme file and stable version of plugin.


  • Upgraded for 3.1 usage
  • cleaned up/streamlined/updated code
  • made it easier - no more renaming/moving files around. Simply upload and activate.
  • no extra javascript files - uses WP's system instead.


  • First release.
