**Are you a WordPress Theme Wizard?** I have a very-standard Twenty Ten theme blog installed, and I don't want anything there to change. All I need is an additional page that *only* displays the standard formatted (and sometimes nested) **comments** and **respond** sections for a given (single) blog post.
This page, called [url removed, login to view], will be displayed as part of another page, using echo file_get_contents( "...[url removed, login to view]" ); , so it doesn't even need to output html and body tags.
My original plan, using a foreach() loop on a get_comments(); call, works to display the comments linearly, and I could play with that a bit to get the formatting, but that won't give me the nesting. The more I look at WordPress, the more I realize that what I really need is to output those two sections of a single post much the way wp-content/themes/twentyten/[url removed, login to view] does, except without all of the other sections. I don't want to edit [url removed, login to view] itself, since that'll obviously break the rest of the blog.
_One_ idea (not the only approach) would be to use a custom post_type. (See [url removed, login to view] .) Then we could copy [url removed, login to view] and reduce it down to a much smaller file, just calling comments_template(), and likely little else. Creating a whole custom post_type sort of seems like overkill, but I'm running out of ideas and time.
The other requirement is that I really need this *today*, not in a few days. If you are already familiar with WordPress themes, you'll recognize that I'm really only asking for a few lines of code, and we can get this accomplished in the next few hours.
I'm only looking for a few files, at most, and probably less.
