26 "Inline comments" hack
August 20, 2007 /

I came across a hack on Singpolyma's blog which enables you to feature "Wordpress" style comments beneath your blog posts, so readers can leave their comments without having to leave the page!

You can choose to install regular inline comments, or have them perform a "peek-a-boo" function where the comments only appear when your readers click on the appropriate link. Full instructions can be found here on Singpolyma's blog. The hack is quite complex, so be sure to follow his instructions to the letter in order to make this work properly in your blog.

If you would prefer to simply install a template which features a similar hack, try the K1 template from Blogger Templates, which is a (new) Blogger layouts style template featuring commenting below the posts.

  1. Hi Amanda,

    Thanks for a great and informative blog.

    That is a nice trick you did, putting the adsense ad in the middle of the post. How did you do that?

    Also, how did you get the comment to appear in a separate tab on a page by itself?

    Thanks if you can help.

    1. I do accept as true with all of the ideas you've presented on your post.

  2. Hi Amanda,

    How did you make the "post a comment" form pop-up in its own small window?

    I've seen a few people do it, but no explanations of how it's achieved!?

    i would really appreciate your advice on this, as its's far better than other methods I've seen.

    Thanks and I think your site is great!

  3. Hello schooljuffrouw,

    Please accept my apologies for the very late response to your comment :)

    As Google restricts ads to only 3 per page, the ads in the middle of the posts only appear on the post pages. I placed the code for these ads in my post template, and my method is explained fully in this post:

    For Admin,

    The comments pop-up page is surprisingly easy to achieve. Simply go to Settings>comments in your Blogger dashboard, and check the radio button next to "Show comments in a pop-up window". Then save your settings. Then when you click on the comments link, the pop-up page should appear instead of the bulky wide comments page.

    In these blogs, this setting is only activated on post pages though: for my main and archive pages, my posts are summarized and instead the "3 comments" link (or similar) directs the reader to the comments section on the post page.

    If you'd also like to know about this method, I could post about this shortly.

    Best wishes to you both and thank you for your comments :)


  4. Thanks Amanda, it would have taken me ages to find that one out on my own!

    The other method you mentioned would be much appreciated if you could post how to do it :)

    Also, what I would really like to be able to do is have the 'post a comment' option appear inline as you have done on this page :


    Hope you have time to help :)

    Thanks again

  5. Hi Amanda, regarding this reply you sent:

    "in these blogs, this setting is only activated on post pages though: for my main and archive pages, my posts are summarized and instead the "3 comments" link (or similar) directs the reader to the comments section on the post page."

    I would find this a very useful addition to my blog and so far I haven't found any way of implementing it. It would be great if you have the time to post instructions.


  6. Hello Anonymous,

    I will make a post explaining this method in the near future which I hope will be useful to you. Thanks for pointing this out to me :)


  7. I always wondered how to do such things... more so the inline comment box like wordpress. Tried to follow that step but it don't work... Every template is built differently even the default templates. When say to find such code and replace its not written the same so it does always tell you something is missing or it can't save because you didn't closed end tags... really annoying.
