Google Commenting Made Easier

I went to another Blogger's site and when I went to comment, a page with the card right above the comments popped up, just like on Typepad, etc. So here is how you do it. As Deb would say, 'Easy Peasy'.

Commenting made easier as of October 22, 2008. This feature puts the comment form at the bottom of each post page, below the comments, instead of on the separate, Blogger-styled page.

To enable the embedded comment form for your blog, go to:
1. Your Dashboard
2. Click on Settings
3. Click on Comments
4. Go down to Comment Form Placement Setting
5. Click on Embedded before post
6. Go to the bottom of the page and click on Save Your Settings

and you are done. The good of this is you can look at the post images by rolling your cursor up. It may not be as fast on those blogs where there are tons of posts, but I think I am going to love it. Google has made it the default setting on all new blogs, but you can easily change that if you want to do so.

Just thought you should know. I think I better start getting Google Blog updates in a feed. Thanks for stopping by the blog to look and share.

Thanks for another awesome tip Shirley! I'll check it out and see if that is the way for me to go.

I think I understood all that!! lol.. and I guess this is the result! :o)

It's a bit like with the previous style, opting to have comments as a pop-up window instead of whole page, so you could still see the post you're commenting on.

Similar benefit with this, but I think you're right.. this will be useful unless there are hundreds of comments before yours to scroll through if you want to check something on the post... like with some of the popular challenge blogs.

Think I will change mine to this format though, so thanks for that, Shirley!

hugs,

Hi Shirley, I just tried that and it doesn't work on my blog. Maybe it is just for certain templates. I have seen it on other blogs as well and I wish it did work on mine!

Thanks for the tip, I had noticed the new way of commenting on other blogs and liked it. Changed mine now - or at least I hope I have.
