UPDATE: If you would like to remove thread comments then read: Remove Threaded/Nested Commenting




blogger threaded commentsJust yesterday we shared a tutorial and announcement on Blogger's most awaited feature of threaded (Nested) commenting system. We shared how to enable threaded comment style in official blogger templates but that method don't work on custom templates which are downloaded from un-official designers. Almost 75% of blogger users prefer using un-official templates and since this feature can't simply be resisted therefore we took some time to install it safely and apply all required codes to make this feature function properly after a lot of trial and errors. The tutorial below is first time shared and will offer the easiest way to add threaded commenting style to blogger blogs. I had received some JavaScript codes from our Malay speaking Fellow bloggers and Indian Guest authors which was producing the same effect using scripts created by third party developers but the reason I delayed those guest posts was due to their browser load time conflict issues. I am glad Blogger team provided us with a much neater and fast loading script that has now surely pushed blogspot blogs to the next level. Lets get to work then!

This is again a first time shared tutorial guide by mbt blog. These scripts and style sheets are provided only by MBT blog therefore if you wish to share this tutorial with your readers and friends then kindly link back to this post as the only favour in return.

Do also check our previous tutorials on customizing Blogger comment box. Note that those tutorials will need to be updated to make it work with this new feature.



Apply Threaded Comments To Custom Templates



The steps are extremely easy and you just need to follow it carefully.



  1. Go To Blogger > Design > Edit HTML



  2. Backup your template



  3. Click "Expand Widget Templates" box



  4. Search for this code,




(Info: This code initially appeared twice but blogger team has officially replaced the first occurrence, therefore we just need to add it once as shown here. It has become now more easy than expected.)



<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
  <b:include data='post' name='comments'/>
</b:if>


     5.   Replace it with this,  




<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;static_page&quot;'>
         <b:if cond='data:post.showThreadedComments'>
           <b:include data='post' name='threaded_comments'/>
         <b:else/>
           <b:include data='post' name='comments'/>
         </b:if>
       </b:if>
       <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
         <b:if cond='data:post.showThreadedComments'>
           <b:include data='post' name='threaded_comments'/>
         <b:else/>
           <b:include data='post' name='comments'/>
         </b:if>
       </b:if>





      6.   Save your template


      7.    Done!





Visit your blogs and you will find a Reply link along with a delete link below each comment. Clicking the reply link will open the comment form just below that comment so that you could post a threaded reply. It will work just perfectly. :)


Customizing Threaded Comments


The threaded comment style will override your current comment style format. In order to customize the comment body completely to suit your preferences I am sharing below the CSS code required to edit the style sheet for the comment block.

Your template will include the following CSS code automatically inserted by blogger:


<b:includable id='threaded_comment_css'>   <style>
.comments {
  clear: both;
  margin-top: 10px;
  margin-bottom: 0px;
  line-height: 1em;
