Add A Comment Form Below Posts

comment formMost Gurus know how important Feedback are from our readers, I personally love every comment.

But in blogger blogs, we find that the comment form is not embedded below the post area which is a feature found in every Wordpress blog.

So to have this hack on Blogger blogs follow this simple tutorial to Add Comment Form below your blogger posts:

01. Log in to your Free Blogger account by going to Draft Login Page:

02. On your Dashboard choose the blog for which you want to Add A Inline Comment Form and then click on Settings:

<data:postCommentMsg/></a> </b:if> </p>

Replace the above code with below 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' expr:onclick='data:post.addCommentOnclick'>

By Previewing, you don't save the changes, but can ensure it be error free. If there doesn't comes any error then press Save Template.

If still the comment form is not shown in your template,, then try this easy step:

<b:include data='post' name='comment-form'/>

Preview the template, if no error comes then Save Template.
