Embedded Comment Form for Your New Blogger

Great news!!! If you are using Blogger as your free blog platform, now you can get a new feature: Embedded Comment Form. How?

  • Next make sure you click on a radio button next to "Embedded below post". See the screenshot below:

  • Then go all the way down and click on Save Settings to save your change.
If you are using a Classic template, then you are done. However, it is a little bit tricky if you are using a modified template. Since I am using a modified template - Minima Strentch, I'll show you how I've done it with mine.
  • First login to your Blogger account/Blogger in Draft account; click on Layout/Edit HTML.Layout/Edit HTML
  • Before you make any changes, make sure you backup your template by clicking on Download Full Template. See the screenshot below: Layout/Edit HTML/Backup Template
  • Next click to tick Expand Widget Templates checkbox like the screenshot below: Expand Widget Template
  • Then search for the following code in your New Blogger template HTML editor; hold Ctrl and hit F at the same time ; then copy and paste the following line in the search box to find it.
    <b:include data='post' name='comments'/>

  • Insert the following code right after the above code:
    <b:include data='post' name='comment-form'/>

  • Finally click on Save Template to save your code.
