Move Comments Section in StudioPress

There are times when you want to change the way your comments are positioned in your blog.  The standard positioning in WordPress for your comments is the comment feed above the respond form.

But occasionally, you may want to change this layout.  To move the respond form above the commend thread, you need to remove the form and then add it above the comments.

To do this, you use a couple of the built in hooks that come with StudioPress.  Adding the following to your functions.php file, will reposition your comment form.

/** Reposition secondary navigation */
remove_action( 'genesis_comment_form', 'genesis_do_comment_form' );
add_action( 'genesis_before_comments' , 'genesis_do_comment_form' );

Which will result in switching the respond form with the comments feed.

Shout off in the comments below.  Do you have any other StudioPress questions?
