Commentpress Theme

Commentpress is an open source theme and plugin for WordPress that allows readers to comment paragraph by paragraph in the margins of a text.

Annotate, gloss, workshop, debate: with Commentpress you can do all of these things on a finer-grained level, turning a document into a conversation. It can be applied to a fixed document (paper/essay/book etc.) or to a running blog.

Please note: this theme only works with the official Commentpress Plugin.

For further information and instructions please see the Commentpress site


This theme only works in combination with the Commentpress Plugin. Please install and activate the theme by doing the following:

  1. Unzip the .zip file and, if needed, rename the enclosing folder so that the theme's files are located directly inside /wp-content/themes/commentpress
  2. Activate the theme.
  3. Visit settings pages and configure theme.
  4. You are done!

Note: it is assumed that if you're using git clone to install the theme, then you probably don't need detailed instructions on how to do so!

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
