Reorder Comment Thread (2 posts)

    Hi folks,

    I'd like to be able to reorder the comments in a thread. For example, sometimes a commenter doesn't hit the "reply" button on a particular comment and instead posts a comment as a new comment further down the page. I'd like to be able to position that new comment in a current thread in reply to a particular comment.

    Any ideas?

    Even if it's only to help make a case for a plugin that does this, I'll take this chance to say I'd surely welcome this kind of functionality.

    I ended up modifying the database with PhpMyAdmin to get the changes done... the hard way: you have to find and assign the "comment_ID" of the parent comment to the child comment, in the "comment_parent" field.

    By the way, drag and drop for this would be sweet ;-)
