Google Plus Comments in Blogger

Again a awesome feature for bloggers(blogspot) from Google. Blogger introduced a new comment system by using Google plus comments in blogger. This will not just take your blog to the next level but build your blog’s social impact better.

Its very easy to implement the new comment system. If you are using custom templates from other vendors you have to do some little edit in the HTML code.

Click on the picture right side to view larger or visit this page to see the comment system in action
Lets start the installation..

If you are using blogger’s template just go to Dashboard>> Google+ Tab, Mark the option “Use Google+ Comments on this blog”. 

If you are using any custom template from another vendor go to Dashboard>>Template>>Edit Html, and search for the code

<b:includable id=’comment-form’ var=’post’>

And add the following code to the next line and you are done. 🙂

<div class=’cmt_iframe_holder’ expr:data-href=’data:post.canonicalUrl’ expr:data-viewtype=’data:post.viewType’/>

Now save the template and start using the new google plus comments.

If you are using a custom template and using the 2nd method then you have the previous comment system also in the blog, that means anonymous comments are also enabled. But if you are using any blogger’s template and using the first method only, then only a google plus user can comment on your blog. Also remember if you are using Disqus comment system, no comments can not be recovered.

Happy commenting.. 🙂
