Changing the comment links to send to the comment form

Hi,

I have this problem: I want the Leave a Comment link at the bottom of a post to send people to the comment form whether there are already comments or not.

I updated the single post info items to this line:
%comments('Leave a comment', 'One comment - please leave yours', '% comments - please leave yours', 'Comments are closed')%

If there are comments on the page, it doesn't send the visitor to the comment form but to the latest comment. How can I change that?

Thanks.

John

Hi,

I'm using WP 2.9.2 and atahualpa 3.4.2

Here is a post with lots of comments: http://www.worldofdiets.com/fat-burning-furnace-review/


By the way, is there a main benefit to upgrading to 3.5.1?

lots of fixes, options stored as one row in database, less db calls

if you read the section on comments at ATO->Edit POST/PAGE INFO ITEMS it tells you haw to set up the link to the comment form anchor. With that in mind I found a bug where that code sends you off the page (at least it does in 3.5.1) and I am looking into it.

Hi,

I'm afraid the instructions don't work.

I added this line as instructed: <a href="#commentform">Skip to comments form</a>

What the link translates to on single post page is to this:

http://Mysite.com/page-url/\commentsform

It leads to a Nothing Found Page
