Move the "leave a comment" link - Elemin

    Hi there

    I would be greatful grateful if you could help me resolve the following issue. I'm using the Elemin theme and I would like to move the "Leave a comment" link from the left hand side of the post to the bottom of the post. Next to that link I would like a link that says "Read other comments". Ideally the appearence of those links would be the same as the "Share this" "Like this" text that already sits below the posts.

    Thank you very much in advance for your time.

    Regards!

    The blog I need help with is architectonista.wordpress.com.

  2. The leave a comment text in that link generally changes to X comments after a comment is made (with X being the number of comments).

    Since the block of meta data at the left of the post where the comments link is, is in a separate div from the post content, keeping it aligned where you want it will be difficult. As likes go to two or three lines - or more - the comments link will not shift with it since it sits outside of the post content div. If the comment link is shifted to the right to appear in the post content area, it can also mean other things will run over it, again such as in the case of likes going to two or three lines.

    Text could be added to the comments link text using CSS, but the original text cannot be changed. It can be hidden and then new text added via a before or after CSS trick if you wished to do that.

    Thank you so much for your help.
    I'm very new to all these...Would it be possible then to just move the "leave a comment" link just below the post?
    Thank you!

    k.

  4. The alignment issue would still be a problem on any post where the likes section went to two or three lines, or more, since the positioning of the "leave a comment" text would be done off the very bottom of the div, below the likes. The only way to keep that from happening would be to put it at the very bottom below the likes section, and that wouldn't be a good place for your visitors.

    I don't see a clean way to do it.

    Thank you very much for your help!

    But I have one last question...would it then be possible to place the "leave a comment" right after the post, before the "share this" line?

    Thanks again !

  6. Sorry, the same alignment issue exists, no matter where the link is placed. I wish I had better news for you.

    Great site you have though and I've bookmarked it. My major was architecture, but I never finished.
