    Thanks for doing that. I didn’t do the initial setup of this theme so I didn’t know it already does show/hide of comments. Can you tell me where because I haven’t noticed it?

    As you say this has noting to do with your plugin but the people I set the site up for want that theme so there’s not much I can do but I appreciate you help and will use yours on some other sites I have

    I just did an initial setup. When you activate the plugin, there’s a tab for comments that show up in the sidebar. It shows/hides the “reply” form, but not the comment replies themselves. Each “layer” within the comments tab allows you to expand comments left for each paragraph, as well as shows/hides a section for comments on the overall post. it doesn’t show/hide comment *replies* (save the actual form to leave them) – but with all the AJAX expanding, etc. it’s hard to tell what you’d have to do to that theme’s plugin to make it work with mine.

    It is the show/hide of the comment “replies” that I’m looking for but thanks for the help.

    Hey Shelly! πŸ™‚

    Thank you soooo much for taking the time to respond. I went through all of your responses, and just don’t know what to do.

    1. I’ve activated your plugin.
    2. I’ve changed to wp to bb.
    3. I noticed your plugin is changing my formatting.
    4. That’s about it.

    The other thing is, I am using a custom theme by themeforest, which I paid $50.00 for. I’d be more than happy to create a second admin account, so you can login and look at my code.

    I’m usually really good with code, but no so much on the Plugin end of the deal.

    I’d be more than happy to donate if we can get your plugin working, and I’d be more than happy to also share the solution on Youtube.

    If you could get back to me sometime before February 3rd, that’d be great, because I’m going to be out of town after that date.



    1. For those having trouble, go to your WordPress Admin Dashboard.
    2. Click “Settings”
    3. Click “Discussion”
    4. Click Checkbox “Enable threaded (nested) comments”

    Taking the above steps got me to get the words “Show/Hide Replies” to come up. Now I just need to figure out how to turn these words into a clickable link.

    Here’s what I have so far: (scroll down to see comments)

    Here’s what I have:

    There I am using the Twenty 11 Theme for example.

    Again, I got the “Show/Hide Replies” to come up, it’s just not clickable.

    Now I just need to figure out how to turn these words into a clickable link.

    it should already be doing that for you -my plugin is set for that. it’snot an actual *link* – so you won’t get a “hand” cursor (it’s a span class), but you can use CSS to put that on there so people know it’s clickable.

    And yes, you have to have “enable threaded comments” in your settings πŸ˜‰

    your jQuery isn’t working.

    Your’e linking (to anOLD version of jQuery, by the way. You’re using 1.3.2, and jQuery is now at 1.7.1), but if you view your source code, you’re pulling in this file:

    if you go to look at it, it goes to a 404. How that got there, I don’t know. Twenty Eleven doesn’t have any such script in the theme files (in fact, the scripts are stored in the “js” folder within the theme, not the “scripts” folder, and even then, Twenty Eleven enqueues WordPress’ jQuery – it’s not in the theme files at all)

    I don’t know where this link is coming from, but however it got put in there, it’s totally wrong.

    EDIT: just checked the other site, too – you have the same problem there. Your call to the (old) jQuery script goes to a 404.

    Hey Shelly,

    I don’t know much about jQuery. What are the steps that I should take in order to link to the new version (1.7.1) of jQuery?

    Is there a video that will teach me how to do this?

    By the way, I appreciate all of the support. πŸ™‚

    Update: I got your plugin to work on my TEST page by installing this code into my functions.php file.

    if( !is_admin()){
       wp_register_script('jquery', (""), false, '1.4.2');

    Unfortunately, I tried that same code on the actual site I want the plugin to work for, and still, the SHOW/HIDE replies isn’t working.


    The replies are all hidden, so we’re getting really close to making this work! πŸ™‚

    Here’s the link of the site having trouble:

    Here’s the link of the site that is working:

    My guess is (on the site where it’s not working) that the theme has a function somewhere that pops the jquery in from a localized spot (the themes folder). You could try and find where that is, and remove it, and enqueue jQuery yourself; or you could grab a copy of jQuery, rename it to “jquery132.js” and upload it to the “scripts/jquery” folder of your theme. Then when it looks for it, it’ll be there.

    I’m working on this as we speak. I tried using the Twenty 11 and Twenty 10 theme on TaylorThompsonFitness (the site that isn’t working) and those themes DID work. So this is a theme specific problem.

    I tried grabbing a copy of jquery and renaming it to jquery132.js and then uploading it into this folder:

    Unfortunately, this didn’t fix the problem. I am now going to try to find the function that pops the jquery in from a localized spot.
