Easiest Comment Box Code
blog comment box code tutorial

Glamiva had a problem yesterday, when I tried to see the comments, I can't.
This one doesn't have comments so I think that's why it won't take me to it.

Then I tried to see posts with comments and when I clicked at the same button, it didn't take me anywhere, none. Just there, only the sound clicks. So I opened the post's tittle and tried to post a comment there.

I clicked at the pointed button like above and nothing happened. Then only I knew that the layout that I just took few weeks ago isn't working fully.

Oh god.

I tried reverting but it didn't help. I was at my wits end!

I went up to google and found Trick-Blog! Lucky me. It was the third rank on the result and before it there were something like it's instructions there but didn't work. This article is for bloggers at blogspot to put comment box under their posts, unlike last time where there would be a link underneath it for people to post.

Not so appealing.

Lucky for us all, Trick-Blog posted this article.

1. Login to
2. Go to Setting-->Comments. then change "Comment Form Placement" to be "Embedded below post".

3. "Save Setting"
Try to see one of your blog posts If there's already a working comment box under your post, then your problem is solved. But if there's stil none, just follow the next steps.

And in my case, still none.

4. Go to "Layout-->Edit HTML"
5. Check (click on) the "Expand widget templates" box.

6. Find these codes like below:

You can click Ctrl+F (Internet Explorer) to find it amongst all the codes there, easier that way. But mind you, for the code

<p class="comment-footer">
, there were two results for the code above at different paragraphs (for my layout) and when you do find the code, just double check for the code if it's the exact one that is needed to be tracked.

There are 3 matches for my search and they are highlighted automatically for the 1st result.
I checked every codes and finally on the 3rd one, it's the exact code that I was looking for.

7. Highligt the whole code like the one in the box above, then just replace it with this code below:

Here's a screenshot of the highlight.

Here's the paste.

8. Save! Go and check it out! Now you can enjoy posting comments under your blog as well as your visitors!
