Threading/Indenting Post Replies in Wordpress


Hi! I would like to indent second-level (and third-level, and so on) replies to blog posts on Wordpress.

Does anyone know a good way to do this? Is there a plugin I should use, or do I need to mess with the HTML of my theme?

Thanks for any help in advance!


Hi Leigh,

You can do this in the Settings–>Discussion area by specifying how nested comment threads can be, here is a guide I found that might help:


you could use css to indent?


agree with all of the above - usually it’s your settings plus what the theme support plus the opportunity to write some additional css if the theme doesn’t handle it
