The comment style so good we had to use it ourselves


SideBySide is straightforward, clean, and won’t draw any attention away from your content. When we say we use it ourselves, we’re serious — visit the blog and leave a comment to see it in action..

All you need to do is drop a folder into your theme and add a single line to your functions.php file, and you’re good to go.

  • Support for threaded comments (WP 2.7+)
  • Trackback list below the comment list
  • Clean HTML and CSS, easy to tweak
  • Easily incorporate into any themes you’re using right now!
  • Access to all future upgrades

The installation procedure is pretty painless.

  1. After download the ZIP, unpack it.
  2. Rename your theme’s comments.php file to comments-old.php. This is just to protect the theme from any changes we’re making.
  3. Copy over our comments.php and the /sidebyside folder into the root of your theme.
  4. Paste this line into your theme’s functions.php file: require_once(TEMPLATEPATH . '/sidebyside/functions.php');

Note: These instructions, and others, are included in the ZIP file’s readme.txt file. Look over it for more help.
