Reply Option in Comments Tutorial

March 20, 2011

Per request of the 40 or so people who wanted me to explain how I added 'reply' options to my comments I will show you below:

First off I got all my code and instructions on the 'reply' button at 'Spice Up Your Blog'. It has some great tutorials on how to get a lot of Blogger without having to switch to a paid host like Wordpress. I definitely recommend checking out all their other tuts.

Since I don't want to copy all their hard work (I've come up with a few html codes on my own and it's not easy.) I will tell you to first go to their page here and follow the instructions. Simple enough. Then come back to my page for further instructions.
Now that you've done all that you don't want people to be jumping to the 'blogger comment page' to leave comments because it won't show the reply option. So go to your 'dashboard' in blogger then go to settings. Under settings go to the 'comments' tab at the top. About three options down there will be a radio button for "Comment Form Placement". You want to check the last option "
Then go down to "Comment Form Message" and add something like this "If you would like to be notified by email when I (or anyone else) replies to your comment please click the 'Subscribe by email' link under this comment box." So that everyone knows that they must do this to get any responses from you or anyone else.

That's it! So until blogger catches up with all our needs, this will do. If you have any questions just leave them for me below. Although I recommend asking questions about the html code to Spice Up Your Blog since they have authored the code and can better help you. Any other questions feel free to ask.
