Before anyone suggest the Comment Form Above Comments, I have already tried that it did not work.
Honestly there seems to be amazingly little documentation on this issue, given that comment form above the comments is so standard on many sites now a days I would figure there would be a simple button to click to make this happen.
This leads me to believe that either there is a simple solution that I am completely missing or there is no way to do this and I am doomed. Me I am hoping for the first one.
I have a blog site... I read about altering the core code of the comments module, but I have also heard that it is bad practice to alter the core code. So if there is another solution out there available to drupal 7 I would appreciate it.
