SideBySide

The comment style so good we had to use it ourselves

sidebyside_large

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.

Features
  • 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
Installation

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.

Purchase details

This comment style, a ZIP file containing the PHP files and CSS to make it happen, is all yours for only $7. The files are licensed under the GPL. You are free to do with it what you please.
