I developed this site for a photographer and she requested the comments section be "scrollable" under each post on the index page. I accomplished that by using comments.php and adding this code to the index page:
<?php $wp_query->is_single = true; comments_template(); $wp_query->is_single = false; ?>
What I am trying to do next is to NOT show the "Leave a Reply" section(s) on the index page, but instead have a button or link that, when clicked on, takes the user to the "Leave a Reply" section on the individual post page using #respond anchor tags that I already have in place.
Here is a link to the site to help give you a visual of where I am at:
Any help would be appreciated!
