Hi, my site is electrotorials.com.

I am having troubles editing the layout of comments, especially nested ones. In ATO>Comments>style and configure comments, they give you the option to edit the boarder around single comments, and i changed it from dotted grey to a solid blue. But when I did, the nested comments still had a grey dotted border. I couldn't find anywhere to edit nested comments, any i would like to edit their spacing in relation to other comments as well as change the border.

In other posts i saw that the comments could be edited through a css insert:

ul.commentlist li {
margin: 5px 0;
padding: 10px;
border: solid 1px #419184;
background: #FFFCC8;
}

but when i did this, it made a box around a comment and all of its nested comments, additionally, it didn't replace the grey dot border.

If anyone could help me, I have wp 3.0.4 and Atahualpa 3.6.1

what you are seeing is the AUTHOR highlighting. If you want the post authors comments to have a solid border, use
HTML Code:
ul.children div.bypostauthor {
	border-style:solid;

Ok, thanks. That worked for the author comments. How do I change comments from other users? I see that your code includes: div.bypostauthor, but what would I do to make it explicable to all of the nested comments. Also, is there a way to make the space that appears after nested comments disappear. Thanks!

Here is what my css insert looks like:
Code:
ul.children div.bypostauthor {
	border-style:solid;
}
I can tell that the box is only appearing around my comments because of the bypostauthor but I don't know what to put to make it applicable to all children comments (i.e. ones by the test user I made) which are still showing up as a dotted grey border.

The best way to see all the CSS you will need is to use Firebug in Firefox. This way you can examine each area you want to change, change it and then copy the CSS.

There are several levels when dealing with nested comments and each effects the levels beneth it
