As a blogger I live for (dramatic) the interaction I have with my readers. Seriously, though – it’s just fun to be able to reply back to individual comments. (THANK YOU, comment-leavers! I heart you!) I questioned changing over to WordPress for years because I wanted a better commenting solution and I was too afraid to use a third-party plug in on my Blogger blog. (DORK, say it.) Finally, though, Blogger came around in January and those of us holding out now have what everyone else has. (NERD.)
If you have a blogger blog and would like to activate “threading” in your commenting, follow along.
Now, this is only for bloggers using Blogger’s commenting system — for those of you using intense debate or some other third-party commenting system, this post isn’t for you. And, for those of you with uber-customized blog templates, this may not be for you, either. (Sorry.)
So, get into your dashboard and then click so that you can make sure you blog feed is set to full. (What does this mean? I don’t know.)
Settings > Other > and then “Full” from the “Allow Blog Feed” dropdown.
Next, check your current comment form settings.
Select, Settings > Posts and Comments and select “Embedded” from the “Comment Location” dropdown.
This should do it!
