Blogger has introduced a new way of commenting! With this option you can now reply directly to a comment, right in your comment area.
As a blogger, you have three options for how your comments appear on your site.
I have long been a fan of “embedded below post” comments as this option does not redirect a blogger to a separate page for commenting.
Recently, I changed this commenting option to accommodate a lovely blogging friend who was having a difficult time posting her comments with this particular setup! Therefore I have been using the “pop-up window” commenting option for the last month.
I have missed my “old” ways and I am hopeful my friend will find these changes have solved the glitch that was affecting her ability to comment and is now able to leave one with this improved option.
Here’s what you’ll need to know:
Go to your Settings area and open the Comment section (marked in red in my screen shot) click on Embedded below post. Then save your settings and you are ready to go.
This is what the comment area looks like after the change: (see box below)
Alex J. Cavanaugh left me a comment; I was able to Reply directly to it; right under it.
If for some reason you need to Delete a comment...you can do it right then and there.
Next...once I wrote my comment, I had the option (as before) to Preview it, or Post it directly. If for any reason I am unhappy with my Reply (which is sometimes the case) I can Delete it and start over, without having to go back and forth, as in the past.
Then...and this is the best part...
If Alex comes back to check if I've replied...he doesn't need to scroll all over the place to find my reply...it's there, right under his comment.
Now...I ask you, "How cool is that?"
So, are you going to give it a try?
