Brian’s Threaded Comments is one of the best WordPress Plugins I’ve ever installed on this blog. The Plugin adds â€œReply to this commentâ€ link to every blog comments. When you click the reply link, your comment is placed direct under the comment you replied to. However, there is a problem with the Plugin when you want to cancel a reply.
If you click reply to this comment and then decide to cancel, it jazzes up the screen and covers the content with a white block. My solution when first made aware of this bug was, “don’t cancel the reply.”
Fortunately, Derek over at My New Choice has come up with a more elegant solution to the problem.
In the plugin code, briansthreadedcomments.php you need to edit the following line in the reRoot function:
From: var content = document.getElementById(“content”);
To: var content = document.getElementById(“content-main”);
Once I made this change, clicking the cancel link results in the behavior you would expect.
I’m happy to say it works like a charm. You can now cancel replies without fear of the white screen of death! 😈
