Blogum theme comments pushed to bottom
I will flag this thread so it gets moved to the Themes Forum. There Staff who monitor these threads will respond to your issue.
You’re welcome. :)
Thanks for your suggestion. However, due to the nature of Blogum’s layout, comments must appear below the main post area and sidebar. If comments appeared right under the post column, it would cause threaded-comments that are more than a few levels deep to be too narrow. Therefore, we currently do not have any plans to modify the layout.
@michiecat: “Must?” More than half of the available themes have a narrower main column than Blogum, but in all of them the comments appear where they should. So your explanation isn’t convincing, and you should reconsider.
Re threaded-comments, the solution in relatively narrow themes is to avoid having many levels (as the Support doc on Discussion Settings generally recommends), not to display the comments below the sidebar (which is a flaw plain and simple).
@michiecat: While I appreciate your prompt and professional response, I am 100% in agreement with @panaghiotisadam. The functionality of threaded comments deeper than would be feasible for the narrow main column is far outweighed by the need to have comments appearing directly below the post, and not pushed below sidebar content.
Thank you both for your input, it is much appreciated. I can’t make any promises that we will modify the layout at this time, but we will definitely consider your suggestions.
If you decide to in the future, I do hope you update this thread. Right now, I have moved to a different theme, but I don’t like it nearly as well as Blogum in style :\ Clean House is nice but it’s not as edgy. My readers’ comments are too important to me to miss even one due to confusion, though. :)
