new blogger blogspot trick how to embed, move, add
or make the comment box below or under the post.

– Before We Start:
– You need to be careful while changing your template.
– Before you make any changes, Back up your template and save it at safe place.

it’s very nice trick because alot of blogger users wants to lease a comment but they hate the comment pup up window.
so after applying this hack to your blog, you’ll make it easier for you and your listener.
you’ll read the new comments easily and blogspot visitors’ll add new comments easily too.

now lets start step by step.
1 : go to http://blogger.com and log in to your account.
after logging in. you’ll be into your blogger account Dashboard page. click on Layout link. and then select Edit HTML .

Embed Comment Box Below Posts

then check “Expand Widget Templates”

Embed Comment Box Below Posts

and search for the next code.

<p class=’comment-footer’>
<a expr:href=’data:post.addCommentUrl’

then remove it and replace the next code :

<p class=’comment-footer’>
<b:if cond=’data:post.embedCommentForm’>
<b:include data=’post’ name=’comment-form’/>
<b:else/> <b:if cond=’data:post.allowComments’>
<a expr:href=’data:post.addCommentUrl’
</b:if> </b:if> </p> </b:if>

click save template

2 : now go to http://draft.blogger.com and be careful. it’s not blogger.com
it is go to draft.blogger.com

once you loged in you’ll be at your dashboard again.
now select Settings > Comments

    “No se ha podido analizar su plantilla, porque no está bien formada. Asegúrese de que todos los elementos XML se han cerrado correctamente.
    Mensaje de error de XML: Open quote is expected for attribute “{1}” associated with an element type “class”.”

  55. Cell One says:

    Ho Max!

    Hope you are having nice times!
    First: thanks for this nice and helpful blog!

    Made a blog for fun and for a game (see link)

    Everything is almost fine, but…

    Got a question noticed now that all my blog offer the “embedded comment option”?! Is it “new” and implemented on any blogger-blog now?

    I finally found how to modify “comments text font, etc”
    still can’t modify the ugly comment form?!

    The one you use is nicer and don’t have those awful blue “Sign out” &”subscribe” links…

    As I’m noob in CSS I guess I missed a chapter but which??

    Thanks a lot!

  56. Max says:

    hi Cell One

    answer one, yes it’s new and added for all blogger blogs.

    answer two, actually, i didn’t search or tried to do this in blogger before, but i’m now about adding new tutorials and tricks and i hope i can cover this for you.

  57. lyd says:

    Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure all XML elements are closed properly.

    my template is “NOTEBOOK” http://www.raycreationsindia.com/free-blogspot-templates.aspx

    • Max says:

      hi Jaztien, this trick is too complicated because of one reason, it’s the templates authors, the code is not always the same. we mentioned that we’ll add another trick for comments soon, and all new templates support this trick automatically.

  73. sam says:

    ive recently transitioned my blog to a custom domain. i recoded it so that i could have a comment box under each post, which works fine. however incoming reply post are not being dispalyed on the main page, but only when viewing a post thru recent posts. can u help

  78. Max says:

    hi Zlata Thoughts , this codes are in most templates, but some times, the template coder change the codes to custom codes. and you may have no chance to find it.

    hi dave this is because of your custom template.

  79. Feanor says:

    hi, i am using the minima dark template , and i wanted to add the comment box.
    i followed the instructions, and i found the following code :

    and i replaced it with the one given here, but after i saved , it showed an error of XML ( or something like that)and could not save the template.
    can you help me with this Max ?

    p.s. excuse the long comment …

  80. Feanor says:

    Max , it worked ! thanks a heap !

  81. PROSTEC says:

    I already change the code, then saved it..
    but it doesn’t appear on my blog..

    • Max says:

      @ PROSTEC, hi, this is a very old blogger trick, now blogger support this option in default. just go to settings and change the comments option from pop-up to what ever you want.

  82. Sue says:

    I follow the step given, but it failed after the save template’s step. It appear ‘we were unable to save your template’ and Your template could not be parsed as it is not well-formed. Please make sure that all XML elements are closed properly.
    XML error message: Open quote is expected for attribute “{1}” associated with an element type “class”.

    Before this, the Comment appeared in my every post, but after I changed it to review comment before post, it lost even I’ve changed the setting comment.

    • Max says:

      hi sue. this trick is very old and now blogger support this by default, just pick a new template and change the settings only with out modifying the code.

  94. Lydia says:

    I’ve been trying to get this embedded comment box on my blog for a long time without success. My only problem with your instructions (I tried it and got a “not parsed” error message) is that the code you say to replace in my code looks like this:

    It is not exactly like yours. Therefore, when I try to replace with the code you give, it gives me an error. I believe it would work if I knew how to hack it. Need your help badly as my readers have a hard time trying to leave a comment.
    Thank you kindly in advance. BTW it is a Blogger template called Scribe.

  95. Hi. I really want to put a comment box under each of my blog entries.
