Threaded comments hack for WordPress 1.2+

May 9th, 2004
Code, WordPress Hack

I redid the threaded comments for WordPress 1.2 +
Now the install is very simple and the threads are formatted a little better. There is a very small CSS bug where in Opera the lower threads get smaller in size. I have not had the time to fix it yet, if you come up with a solution, please post it and I will add it to the distribution.
As always, please backup everything before installing this hack or any others.

You can see it at work here:

You can download the zip file from here:

    Not that I know of. I think it would be a wonderful addition.

    Thanks for the hack. I’ve installed it and, aside from a couple of CSS problems that I hope to fix soon, it’s great. Erm, do you know of anyone who’s followed up on your code and written a notification module? It’d be nice to give commenters a choice: “would you like to be notified when someone comments on your comment?” or: “would you like to be notified when anyone comments on this post?”

    Perhaps combining the hack with Dunstan’s comment system would achieve something nice?

    It works, but the design of it is horrible. I was hoping the threaded comments would appear like the design in Scoop blogs. For example, check out this thread:
