Support » Fixing WordPress » Comment box is huge

  • Resolved KayInMaine


    I’ve been trying out different templates on my blog today ( and am currently back to using andreas-09 (newest version), but when I left a comment on the first post, the comment box was huge, meaning, instead of cutting the box off at the end of the last line, the comment box expanded past it at least 50 lines or so. Anyone have an idea of what I need to change on the comments.php to fix it?

    I’ll post the code in a second for you to look at. Thank you!

  • Here’s the code from my comments.php:

    <?php // Do not delete these lines
    if (‘comments.php’ == basename($_SERVER[‘SCRIPT_FILENAME’]))
    die (‘Please do not load this page directly. Thanks!’);

    if (!empty($post->post_password)) { // if there’s a password
    if ($_COOKIE[‘wp-postpass_’ . COOKIEHASH] != $post->post_password) { // and it doesn’t match the cookie

    <p class=”nocomments”><?php _e(‘This post is password protected. Enter the password to view comments.’,’andreas09′); ?><p>


    /* This variable is for alternating comment background */
    $oddcomment = ‘alt’;

    <!– You can start editing here. –>

    <?php if ($comments) : ?>

    <?php endif; // if you delete this the sky will fall on your head ?>

    Another thing that is happening is the codex for the STRIPED BLUE andreas-o9 is coming up for the ORANGE.css. Maybe this is the problem? Not sure.




    Interesting…it must be my Firefox that is making it huge. Good to know! Thanks so much for checking it out.

    I’ve moved onto another theme now. 😉
