    Hey guys,

    This is a tiny thing but it’s bothering the living daylight out of me… And being the code newbie that I am I can’t figure out what to do about it. Or more specifically: where I can change it.

    I’m in the process of setting up a blog (using the Divogue theme) and want to use Jetpack comments. Install etc was no problem at all; I liked that I could change the default “leave a reply” to something a little more fun. The only issue is that the actual comment box is too close to the ‘title’ (H3 respond?); the white space that is supposed to be there (and is visible with the built-in WP comment) mysteriously disappears.

    Any thoughts on how to fix this?

    The link is to a screenshot 🙂

    Thanks!

    You should be able to adjust this space by increasing the margin around the title, like so:

    #respond h3#reply-title {
    	margin-bottom: 50px;
    }

    You can paste that code at the bottom of your theme stylesheet or in your custom CSS editor available under Appearance > Edit CSS in your dashboard.

    You might have to customize the code I gave you to fit your needs of course, but that should give you a good starting point!

    That worked like a charm, thanks!

    I was also wondering whether it’s possible to switch the positions of the comment form and the actual comments? As in, comment form at the top, published comments underneath. Is this something that has to be changed in the Divogue theme CSS or can it just be added “on top” of it through the custom CSS editor?

    To do so, you’ll need to make some changes to your theme’s comments.php file. The comment form function (comment_form()) will need to be placed before the comment list.

    If you do not feel comfortable editing PHP files, I would suggest that you contact the theme author about this.
