How to implement WP 2.7 threaded comments feature

December 17, 2008 | No Comments Yet

Aside from the admin redesign, threaded or nested comments is one of the biggest new features in WordPress 2.7. Problem is, if your theme you’re using doesn’t support it yet, you won’t be able to enjoy it!

Thankfully, will.ph has written how you can use comment threading in your WP site.

The feature has been integrated in my theme since 2.7-Beta1 was released, yet only now did I realize that my reference was a bit too technical, even for me, that I decided to write another howto that is simplified. Before jumping in, I would highly advise to disable any comment threading plugin, including Disqus, to avoid any unwanted hiccups. Of course, the decision to do this is all up to you.

Thanks Will!
