One of the aspects that most appealing to our community here is the great commentary that we all share. For the longest time, James and I have wanted threaded comments to make that experience even better. We looked at various third-party systems and plug-ins, but in the end, we left things alone.

Our hopes for a native solution were just realized today, since WordPress announced support for threaded comments. We’ve got ‘em implemented, so have it and enjoy! I think they’ll make a great community even better. Then again, maybe I’m the only one who sometimes gets lost in the linear comment threads. Is it just me?

    Hello, threaded comments! :)

    1. I’m probably going to have to bump the contrast up a bit. I bet you can’t even see the backgrounds on a Mac. :-)

    2. Hello indeed! Thanks to the GigaOM crack IT staff for getting these rolled out so quickly. :)

  2. Nice. No more “@” comments.

  3. Hurray! I saw these in earlier articles and was glad.

  4. Another step adding to the greatness! Good Move and fast implementation. Thanks!!

  5. to bad the nesting seems to only be one level deep.

    but then i guess the layout of the page would make anything more then that a bit complicated…

  6. Kevin, how do we add our own thumbnails? Do we need to sign up again somewhere?

    1. I believe it’s taking them from wordpress.com accounts so you can register one of those and it should work. It’s free.

  7. Thanks JK – Got It!
