I use Disqus comments plugin for Wordpress, and the comments section is indented to the right like a blockquote is.

The code appearing in the front end post is:

 <div id="disqus_thread">
    <div id="dsq-content">
        <ul id="dsq-comments">

I cannot find any instance of disqus_thread or dsq using a search of the theme folder; not that searching inside file in Windows 7 isn't a complete pain in the arse.

Can you see why this is happening? Example post here.

Your #dsq-content div has a margin-left value of 30px. Add the following to the bottom of your WordPress theme's stylesheet to override it:

div#content div#disqus_thread div#dsq-content.clearfix{

To edit a theme's stylesheet, go to the Appearance > Editor panel in the WordPress admin area.

  • I removed the .clearfix at the end of your CSS and it worked. Where did you find the original CSS with a margin-left of 30px?

  • @Steve It's being pulled in from a stylesheet on disqus' server here. (I found that out by using Chrome's Web Inspector: screenshot.)
