  • Resolved CompleXed


    I was wondering if it was possible that under the blog to put a link like “Leave a comment” and then it can forward to the comment area (instead of users have to click my blog title and then scroll down)
    I’m extremely new to CSS, so I’m really sorry if this is an easy fix :).

    Thanks again

  • You can add something to this effect:
    <?php comments_popup_link(__('Leave a Comment'), __('Comments (1)'), __('Comments (%)'), '', __('<span>Comments Off</span>') ); ?>. I’m sure you had most of the other arguments but I added them so you can nav through and replace it at the appropriate spot in your theme template. Hope this hekps.

    Which file will I be editing? The Stylesheet?
    Thanks 🙂

    In the index.php or page.php

    Hmm, I can’t seem to find it.
    I looked in my Control Panel for WordPress… can’t find either of those 2 files. I went into my server… and looked in the themes folder for Kubrick and found both but neither had that “<?php comments_popup_link” for me to find. Or should I be looking for something else in there?
    my site is if that makes a difference at all.

    Also, will this effect or mess up my design at all?

    Still can’t quite figure it out. If anyone would take another look it would be greatly appreciated.

    Just a comment – comments are usually associated with a Post. I use a contact form if someone wants to contact me with a comment.

    In the themes folder for the theme you’re currently using (find this in the presentation section of your admin panel), you should find the file named index.php. Put the code shown above in the proper place in the index.php file. You’ll need to be familiar with HTML to know where to place it.

    By the way, you already HAVE something that links to your comments. The link just below the title that says “# comments” is it.

    Cool thanks 🙂

    A good idea that I used in addition to this is to change the text of “Leave a comment” to something else so that the spammers have a tougher time finding your blog.
