Moving comment link from top of page to bottom

  1. Here's my blog:

    http://whatnottodoasawriter.com/

    Is there a way to get the comments button moved from the top of the page to the bottom? Or just anyway to make it more visible?

    The blog I need help with is whatnottodoasawriter.com.

  2. On the front page of our blogs our posts are "showcased" and the comments are collapsed. To view them we click either the title of the post if the comments link and then the post opens on its own page. If comments were not collapsed then our front pages would become a mile long and the page loading time would be so long visitors would not wait but would click out. New bloggers have a hard time with this and with the positioning of the comments link.

    You have three choices:
    (1) Place a text widget at the top of your sidebar instructing visitors to click the comment link or post title. This is a free option.

    (2) Switch to another theme that has been coded to display a comment link where you prefer it to be. This is a free option.

    (3) Use the preview function and try editing the CSS. If you can move the comments button then purchase the CSS upgrade and do the editing required to move the comments button.

    Since there is no official Staff support for the CSS upgrade, and precious little Volunteer support, I recommend that you don’t buy the upgrade unless you have at least moderate understanding of HTML and CSS because you must be prepared to do the work on your own.

    If you are considering purchasing the upgrade, you can go to Appearance > Edit CSS. There wordpress has provided a preview function where you can try before you buy.

    If you do purchase the upgrade be sure to read this article before starting your editing > http://csswiz.wordpress.com/2009/10/15/if-you-have-the-wp-com-css-upgrade/
