Difference between #comments and #respond

    I’ve recently switched to a new theme (My life from Justin Tadlock) and what I didn’t notice is that the “leave a comment” link is on the top of my post. I know I can’t change this, as it’s part of the theme (and I don’t know how to reach the author – his link — oh, it works again, didn’t work the other night…)
    Anyway, back on topic:
    I want to add a standard text at the bottom of each post, with a link to leave a comment.

    “The link to leave a comment is at the start of the post, but for your convenience you can also click here to comment.”

    <span style="color: #ff6600;">click here to comment.</span></span><span style="color: #ff6600;">

    Where I enter the permalink in front of #respond (or #comment).

    My question is: Is there a difference in functionality between the two for replying? Does it matter which one I use?

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


    Hi there. #comments will generally take the user to the top of the comments, so they can read through them before replying. #respond takes you straight to the comment form.



    Thanks for the fast reply! That solves my issue.

    I don’t get that many comments that a lot of scrolling is needed, so #comments will do for me.
