Intense Debate Comments box location

I've just installed Intense Debates to my Omeka site, with the intention of allowing users to comment on individual items. The plugin installed just fine, and then appeared on the pages I'd anticipated--except that the plugin appears at the top of the page, rather than the bottom after all the content on the page. It didn't appear to do this in Will's video (, so I'm wondering where to go from here...

I've been in contact with the folks over at Intense Debate as well, but they suggested asking for advice here. Any thoughts on how to move the ID comment box?

Here is an example:


Look in your items/show.php in your current theme, and make sure that the following code is put at the bottom of the page (below your other content):

echo plugin_append_to_items_show();

The function call above is what adds the IntenseDebate code to the site.

Let me know if this helps.

That worked! Thanks.

I had the opposite problem, but was lucky to find the solution (coding is from one video tutorial . So hope someone will find it useful.
You can use some experimental CSS positioning to put the comment form on top of the comments. This has one flaw, it’ll also position the IntenseDebate logo at the top as well, but other than that it works pretty well.
To make it happen, you need to add the following CSS to your blogs stylesheet (style.css or similar):
#idc-container-parent #idc-container {
position: relative;
padding-top: 320px;
#idc-container-parent #idc-container #IDCommentsNewThreadCover {
position: absolute;
top: 0;
left: 0;
