I recently got embedded comments working on my blog (only snafu was that the domains are case sensitive). Great feature, awesome work, etc etc etc.
However, the default height of the embedded iframe always seems to be 150. This means that users can not see the
Continue Discussion button at the bottom. The iframe doesn’t show a scrollbar either, so users can’t even scroll down to reach the button. All they see is the top comment, and the rest of the content is cut off.
I can manually set the height of the iframe using css and that works (although I still don’t see a scroll bar even after setting
overflow:scroll, but honestly I haven’t poked very much in that direction yet).
Is this the expected behavior? Is the height purposely left up to me, or is this indicative that something is wrong with my configuration? I read this reply to the original embed guide, but I’m a little confused about whether this is required or not.
As a comparison, if I go to Coding Horror’s latest blog, it looks like the height of the embedded iframe is based on the number of comments, which is how I expected it to work.
Am I missing a step in the embed process?
