OMG what a pain! yes i’ve already upgraded my domain to wp 1.5 and i spent the past 5 hours writing how to add the threaded comments back for v1.5. it’s easy for myself to add it back; i just kept my old index.php and my old wp-comments.php. if you want to do that, DO IT. if you do that, you can just add the following two functions to your wp-includes/comment-functions.php
GRAB the old dodos_thread() function for your old wp-includes/functions.php and move it to the new wp-includes/functions.php
add dodo’s modified wp_notify_postauthor() to wp-includes/comment-functions.php
otherwise download my guide here – again it took me five hours to write and figure out coz they freaking changed A LOT of code @_@ arg i will never do it again next time they release a new version.
you can test my threaded comments feature on a refresh install of wp 1.5 here

Whoa.. 5 hours? That’s so long.. I can never do anything like that.. :O
hrm i can code about 10 hour straight. tho it’s just more frustrating to hack than write your own.
I coded for about 7 straight hours today… my coworker kept trying to get me to go outside for lunch. heh
that’s why we are sisters ^_____^
hi- ignore this, i’m just testing out something on your threaded comments hack.
thanks for the directions!
wow. thanks so much for the 1.5 update! I was about to cry until I did a search and found this page. wahoo! 😀
I’m also glad that I was able to find a threaded comments hack for the new version of WordPress!
Hmm. Any idea what I could have possibly done wrong that I can’t post in Firefox, but I can post in IE? =n__n=;;
I’m having so much trouble with this plugin in wp 1.5.1. If anyone else got it to work could you send me all the modified files please? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I can handle the theme part, but I just can’t get the other files working.
Thankyou so much!
I managed to get the threaded comments to work in wordpress 1.5.1 and also in 22.214.171.124. However, I couldn’t get the comment notification to work.
Where did you get stuck?
Unfortunately, I have no clue. I did all the files then uploaded them, which was pretty stupid I guess. Some of the files in 126.96.36.199 don’t have the same code, so I ahd to hunt around the whole thing. I guess I can just wait for someone to make a tut for 188.8.131.52.
