I'm calling my comments the ol' fashion way:

<?php wp_list_comments('avatar_size=60'); ?>

I would like to be able to position the 'Reply" link where I choose. Right now, it defaults to the bottom of the comment. Sure, I can move it via CSS - but what if I want to place it after the dater or username?

Use a custom callback to render the comment content. Inside of the callback function call comment_reply_link() wherever you need it:

        array (
            'add_below' => 'comment-body',
            'depth'     => $reply_depth,
            // + 1 to offer always a reply link for a consistent UI
            'max_depth' => $args['max_depth'] + 1,
            'before'    => '<p class="reply-line">',
            'after'     => '</p>'

@ccdiego5 Sure just use a custom comment callback and place the div wherever you need it. – toscho Nov 23 '15 at 20:54
