Is there a way to keep everything within the Div id="respond" in it's default positio

  • Mr North Jersey


    OK here is my situation.

    I would like to know if there is a way to keep what looks like everything that falls inside the div id=”respond” which if I am reading it right with firebug is the

    <h3 id=”reply-title”> & form id=”commentform” in it’s default position to the left when a post is 1st opened and not move itself to the right aligning itself depending on what nested reply link one clicks on.

    Here is the link to the site:

    Let me say Thanks in advance for any help that can be provided on this.

    You are replying to a comment, and you are using nested comments. That IS how nested comments are supposed to function. It looks different–and better–when it’s different people responding to the comments. (I’m looking at the comments on this page: )

    That said, you can turn this off in

    Settings >> Discussion

    and unticking the box marked “Enable threaded (nested) comments levels deep”

    Yet in our current site we use nested comments but the reply box is always the same. I thought that possibly the same could be done in Graphene.

    Here is the link to our main site that displays what I mean.

    You will see nested comments but regardless of which one is selected to reply to the reply box always remains the same.

    The reason I am asking is that the comment form box I had to shrink it’s width due to it breaking out of it’s column into the next one. If I could do the same with Graphene as in the site I listed it would allow me to make the comment form box it’s original size without worry of it breaking out into the next column due to replying to a nested comment.

    Well, comments are closed on the post I mentioned above. Can you direct me to a post where this is happening?

    Mr North Jersey


    This post the comments are open.

    You hopefully should be able to see depending on which nested comment you select reply to how the comment box shifts to align itself. The only way I was able to keep the comment box from breaking out into the next column originally was shrinking the width to what it is now.

    Unfortunately, not that I’m aware of. The width of #respond is set at 100%, but that means 100% of its container, which, as you’ve discovered, is that comment.

    Oh well, Thanks anyways I appreciate your time in looking into this. I think I may try diabling the nested comments and see if there is possibly a plugin that would label a reply say for example, “Kenneth John Odle in reply to Mr North Jersey comment #32” so that at least one can know which comment is being replied to.

    Again Thanks for your time and if I find a solution I’ll be sure to post it here for anyone else that may have the same issue.

    You can always try adjusting the width of both your site (just a wee bit wider — especially the content portion) and then adjust the width of the nested comments, using custom CSS.

    If you use Firebug, you might get this pretty quickly. Also, you can change the level of nested comments from 5 to 3 or even just 2. (How often, for example, does someone reply to the reply of a reply of a reply?)
