Threaded Comments

Okay, so I was able to add “threaded comments” to this blog without changing the general template. I like the look of this blog and am not ready to change it just yet. 🙂 Threaded comments mean when you want to make a comment, you can choose specifically which comment you want to respond to — either the main article, or any comment a member of this blog has made.

Updating Site

Yes, I’ve crawled back out from under that rock of depression that periodically seems to hammer me, and I’m back. For how long…who knows? *sigh* But while I’m here I want to update this blog, use a new template that makes it easier for us to comment to one another’s posts. I want a conversation tree, so we can respond to specific comments and our comments will publish under the one we responded to. I think it will make it easier to follow that way. So I’ve got a little “template shopping” to do, and hopefully this site can get a new look for the new year. Hoping you are doing well. Here’s to flexing our wings and flying again 🙂 PhoenixRising
