Enabling Blogger Threaded Comments

Wednesday, January 18

This is a non-sewing related post. Its related to our blogs...those of us who use Blogger. I'm sure by now anyone who uses Blogger would have noticed that they can't reply to comments from on their posts. That was one of the first things I noticed after I signed up to Blogger. I used to have a blog on Wordpress called Love it!Sew it! . I used it in 2010 to write about my wedding planning.  I stopped using it because I wanted a fresh start, and I did not like the name of the blog anymore, so I set up a blogger blog.

I remember the shock I had when I realised  Blogger did not have the same threaded comments functionality as Wordpress. I started experimenting with various HTML codes to address the comments issue, and for some time, was able to reply to some comments, but unfortunately, if I did not reply immediately after said comment, my reply would only appear after the latest comment, and not the actual comment I wanted to reply to.

Fast forward to 2012, and Blogger have FINALLY solved the problem. If you look at my last post, in the comment section, you will see that I now have a similar threaded comment functionality to Wordpress blogs. I did not do any coding this time. Blogger did it. YAY!!. And activating it is dead easy. Just use the following steps:

  1. You need to set your blogger comments to "Embedded below post". This means you will be able to comment on the page itself, and not in a pop-up window.
Settings - Comments - Comment form placement - (Embedded below post)



    2.  Change your blog post feeds to "Full"

Settings - Site Feed - Blog Posts Feed - (Full).



Make sure you save your changes. That should do the trick.

I know my interface might look different to some of yours, so if you are using the newer Blogger interface, you might want to take a look at this post, or this. They should be better explained than mine in any case.

Hope this helps.
