Little Tips for Bloggers (The Pop-Up Window)

I have had people ask me different things about their blogs. I know the answers may be somewhere else, and yes, I was lucky enough to find them, but sometimes I just had to ask someone. Sometimes I find the answer, but it's not the easiest way. For some this is not easy at all so...................

I am going to attempt at times to post what I think will help bloggers like 'us' so:

1. Let me know if it helped you. If you have additional questions email me at the EMAIL ME on the side bar to the right. I will place it on a list if there is one. Ha! Maybe I am the only one who thinks this is needed.
2. Let me know if you have found a quicker and better way. Thumbs Up I will post and everyone else will love you and I will too.

3. I will most likely post these when I can. In the meantime I will have a label for these posts and list them in my side bar under 'My Blogger Tips'?

TIP #1 For Bloggers Using Google (How to Get a Separate POP-UP WINDOW)

A separate pop-up window means that the person visiting you blog can comment
while looking at your art. It is really helpful when there is more than one photo or scan posted. It is really helpful with those of us who have so much knowledge our short term memory goes wacko! It also might encourage more people to visit and comment too!
1. Go to your Dashboard if that is where you go before posting, etc.
2. Click on the Settings Tab
3. Click on the Comments Tab
4. Go down to Comment Form Placement
5. To the right of that click on the 'Pop-Up Window' choice
6. And the last most important MUST before leaving the page:

GO DOWN TO THE BOTTM OF THE PAGE and click on SAVE SETTINGS
If you don't do this nothing has been changed.
Don't you dare ask me how I know? Because the answer is how I know most of what I know because I have done it!!Blushy
Hope this advice was helpful. Thanks for stopping by the blog to look and share!

Well, thank you Shirley! That was 'very' helpful and I just changed mine to a pop up window. Before that... I had no clue :D.

PS- what a great idea, and it was in 'understandable' terms too :).

Thanks Shirley... Keep this up and my blog is going to look great like yours!

Cheryl said...

Thanks Shirley! I always wondered how that was done. I also saw on there that when someone leaves a comment it can be emailed to me. I didn't know I could do that either!

I think it is a great idea to give blogging tips. There are always new bloggers out there that can use them.

Thanks Shirley! I always loved this on other people's blogs but never thought to do it on mine, lol, until I saw this post! TFS!!!

Donna Ellis said...

Thanks, Shirley! I needed to change back to the old interface on blogger because the new one does not offer these options (unless I was looking so hard, that I couldn't see the options!) I appreciate your help in making the blog easier to view.
