I’m trying something new: nested comments, which means that you can write a reply directly to a comment, rather than just having all comments appear in the order posted. Let me know if you like this, or if it makes things messy and confusing. I’m actually of two minds about the feature, so your input is very important.
UPDATE: Well, so far it’s a fail. Although I went into the dashboard and explicitly instructed the system to use nested comments, it’s ignoring me. Clearly, the whole Word Press system has been taking lessons from my children. I’ll keep trying. You’ll know it’s happened when you see it happen, and you can get back to me then with your feedback.
