    Hello,

    This has probably been answered before but searching the forum doesn’t seem to work for me (takes me to the Blog page). Anyway, could someone advise me on how to turn off nested comments? I would like it to remain at a single indent level which means that every additional comment would address the main comment. It gets really messy otherwise. Thanks!

    @qrahaman nested comments in blog posts or activity stream? The nesting for both is done via CSS only for bp-default theme and most other themes.

    @mercime …nested comments within the activity stream. You are correct! Thanks for the quick reply.

    @qrahaman The following will flatten the comment replies. See testbp.org/activity where I added five replies to the comment of serenapumipi

    Add to child theme’s stylesheet
    `div.activity-comments ul li > ul {
    margin-left: 0;
    padding-left: 0;
    }`

    @mercime, I’ve added several more comments to the one you referenced in testbp.org. You will see what I’m concerned about… try to add a 16th comment for laughs. This is an extreme case but I think it illustrates the point.

    @qrahaman I understand what you mean, I’ve seen it happen. Adding the style above will resolve the nesting even to the 16th reply-reply, all of which will go flat to the the left.

    i changed it to

    div.activity-comments ul li > ul {
    margin-left: 0;
    padding-left: 0;
    margin-bottom: 0;
    padding-bottom: 0;
    }

    maybe there is a better solution, since this topic is so old and “resolved?”

    is this an even “better” solution from even longer “ago?” LOL

    — really — has the nesting issue been resolved by some “checkbox” that i am missing?
