I’m not sure if this is because I’m using Livefyre to manage my comments or maybe it’s a fault of WordPress’s Twenty Twelve theme but ever since I moved from Twenty Eleven, my comment threads have added space between comments and again in between each thread. This doubles the length of my comments on the blog and makes for messy comment reading experience.
You can see an example of this in this screenshot. The areas in purple are the wasted space. It wastes so much space that I had to shrink the image down so you could get an idea of how much space it is wasting.
I have threading turned off in my WordPress settings, for what that's worth.
I’m no CSS expert, this is no secret. I can get a theme and hack it together into something I like but normally with the help of qualified friends. I’ve asked on Twitter a few times but no one has responded with a suggested solution. The image to the left is a screenshot of the post for my Nutella Ice Cream Recipe, if you want to see the problem for yourself.
Thanks so much. I tried playing with firebug to troubleshoot but it's over my head.
