This morning we updated the Missouri State blogs to better work with the WordPress threaded commenting system. We have been using a third-party plugin to allow for threaded comments, but our themes now work with the integrated WordPress threaded comments and thus the plugin is no longer needed.
To turn on threaded comments on your blog:
- On your blog’s Dashboard, navigate to Settings > Discussion.
- Under ‘Other Comment Settings,’ check the box labeled ‘Enable threaded (nested) comments.’
- Select the number of levels deep you would like the threaded comments to go.
- Click the Save Changes button on the bottom of the page.
We have also integrated a Tiny MCE Comments plugin into all of the blogs, allowing for commenters to add links, format text, etc. This plugin works on both threaded and un-threaded comments.
