Intense Debate Comment Threading on WordPress.com blogs
So I am now one of the cool kids. I have been jealous of my friends who host their own blogs that they could have comment threading (sometimes known as Intense Debate) whereby you can respond to individual posts versus at the end.
I just assumed WordPress.com blogs didn’t have that option. Of course I was wrong thanks to a quick review of the support forum and info provided by the member thesacredpath who pointed me to this blog entry from wordpress.
From their post:
Go to Settings > Discussion in your dashboard, and you’ll discover three new options in the “Other comments settings” section:
- “Enable comments [x] levels deep”
- “Break comments into pages with [x] comments per page and the [first or last] page displayed by default”
- “Comments should be displayed with the [newer or older] comments at the top of each page”
With the threaded comments option, you can connect and interact with your readers while easily keeping track of who’s saying what to whom. You control the conversation by setting the number of levels allowed in your comment threads, from 1 to 10. (Ten levels deep means nine replies under each comment — that’s a lot!)
Hopefully in the next day or so, I’ll have another cool announcement that makes your visits easier and more pleasant…in the meantime back to work.
