Comment Bug

FYI, our site has a bug when it comes to posts with more than 50 comments. It will only display 50 comments per page, but the links in the Recent Comments box on the right sidebar will always take you to the first page of comments. To see additional comments, you need to scroll down to the very bottom of the page and click the "next <" link (or, if there are more than 2 pages of comments, the number of the page you want to see).

I've looked into this before, but wasn't able to come up with a good solution. It doesn't come up often, so I haven't been worrying about it much, but if we start to get posts with this many comments on a regular basis, I'll take another look at the problem and see what I can do.

Speaking of posts with many comments, what do you all think of threading? It seemed like a good idea at first, but I've realized that it's kind of a pain keeping up when the comments aren't posted in strict chronological order, and it's even worse when the comments span multiple pages, so I'm not so sure anymore.

I love threading. It's

I love threading. It's infinitely better than people shouting at each other over a dozen intervening comments.

Why not change the format ?

Why not give a try to ipb or phpbb ? There's a continuum between a blog with comments and a forum.
