Support » Themes and Templates » enable threaded nested comments in inove theme

  • Resolved Jim de Groot



    I’m using WP2.7 and the Inove theme v1.2.2 and I was wondering if anyone knows how I can enable the build-in threaded comments feature?
    I’ve tried to implement the Javascript Comment Functionality from this article: , but it isn’t working.
    I installed the wordpress-threaded-comments plugin and it worked instantly, but I would still like to know how it can be done without plugins, because I have another custom theme where the plugin does not work, and where I also want to have threaded comments.

  • wordpress does that natively
    admin – settings – discussion
    scroll down to:
    “Enable threaded (nested) comments 10 levels deep
    Break comments into pages with 50 comments per page and the page displayed by default
    Comments should be displayed with the comments at the top of each page”

    I’ve tried that already, but that isn’t working. That’s why I was asking it.

    An Example of the blog I’m working can be found here:
    This blog is using a custom theme. When you view the page’s source code, you can see the structure and naming.

    The reactions are at the bottom, but the [reply] links that should be displayed for threaded comments are not there.

    WOW, No response huh? I am having the same problem. So much for this being easy.

    I have same problem. WP Version 2.7.1 with default theme
    Can’t detect function : wp_list_comment

    I tried to include this code on comments.php

    if ( function_exists('wp_list_comments') ) :
    echo "Old WP";
    else :
    echo "New WP";

    The output is “Old WP”

    How to solve this problem?

    I’m disappointed that this is marked as resolved as it definitely is not.

    I’ve got the same problem too.

    This is absolutely not resolved. Even “wordpress-threaded-comments” doesn’t work properly in 2.8.1 with Inove 1.4. Is there another thread on this open somewhere?



    i’d like threaded comments for this theme too, its driving me nuts 🙁

    The theme’s comments.php is coded to bypass the native comment nesting, that’s why. To get them back, you have to remove the custom function they used and restyle it.

    Not a quick fix.

    I just switched to a flourish theme and have the same problem
    I have tried everything I can think of.
    maybe I can start another thread if they claim this is resolved.

    Hi, Anyone an idea if this is going to be solved soon?

    I like the nested comments but I also really like the Inove theme 🙂

    I haven’t looked into it very closely but in this thread Otto42 refers to the document Migrating Plugins and Themes to 2.7/Enhanced Comment Display. That should give the ‘resolved’ tag finally its right of existence – I hope.
