How to move 'Leave a reply' box above the comments.
Hello all,

Atahualpa by default displays the comments first and the 'Leave a reply' text box is positioned all the way at the bottom.

I wanted to know if it is possible to switch their position, so readers can leave a comment without having to scroll all the way down when there are several comments already.

To give you an example, check out one the posts on engadget, post, as you can see the reply text box is on top of the comments making it convenient to leave comments.

Is there a way that I can flip their position?
If not, would there be a way for me to put a 'Leave a reply' button or hyperlinked text that would directly take the user to the reply text area?

Thank you for your help.

You can try editing comments.php and moving the call to comment_form to before where the comments are listed.

I moved this line and everything after it:

// Since 3.6.1: Configuring the new comment_form() function,

to right above this line:

<!-- Comment List -->
<ul class="commentlist">

And it seems to have put the comment form first and comments below it.

Disregard above...found out it deletes the form entirely off of new posts without any previous comments.

Thank you juggledad and Big Geek Daddy. I guess I'll just have to test it to see there's a way to achieve what I'm trying to get done. By the way BGD, thanks for trying it out. I'll update the thread if I find out anything useful.
