    It looks like a great plugin but I have two problems with it…First I can’t automatically display comments underneath my posts, you have to click on “comments” for it to display. Is there a way to display comments automatically? and the second issue is my avatars on the side widget are blurry…

      Hi Nkorni, nice to hear you like it :)
      The first issue you have is not related to Decent Comments, I suppose you’ve got another plugin that does this.
      Regarding the avatars, what settings are you using? As it’s currently not displaying any avatars it’s difficult to judge what happens, mind enabling it or sending a screenshot?

    Hi Kento, thanks for response…I did disable the avatar because they were blurry, but have enabled it now so you can see them…Do you have any solutions for this…And as far as comments not displaying underneath post unless you click on comments…I’m still trying to figure out why…any thoughts?

      In your theme’s comments.css it says:

      .avatar {
      background-repeat: no-repeat;
      float: right;
      height: 80px;
      margin-right: -4px;
      margin-top: -32px;
      padding: 0 0 5px;
      width: 80px;

      which forces a width and height of 80 pixels each on the avatar images. Also the placement seems odd. I suggest you start by commenting the .avatar CSS out and instead adjust the Avatar Size from the widget’s options.

      As for the comments, it seems you’re using the Facebook Comments for WordPress plugin, I recommend you check the settings for that plugin.

    I installed the plugin and put the widget in the appropriate box but there is nothing displayed for visitors to leave comments.

    What is the problem? How do I fix it?

      The widget is supposed to show comments, not to let you leave a comment. Nothing to fix here :)

      Currently it’s not an available as an option, but it could be added in a future release.

    I’ve got the plugin installed, but I don’t seem to have anyway of changing the comments to show the latest comments on top. When i click Options, all I get is “delete settings when the plugin is deactivated”…

      you can do it in the widget setting in Appearance->Widgets
