How to embed comment-form below posts

One of the most requested feature by bloggers in their blogspot blogs, is to have comment-form embedded below their posts, so that visitors need not go away from the post just for the sake of making a comment. Although till date most of the bloggers don’t know about this feature and hence are using pop-up comment form, but embedding the comment-from below the posts is much better than those pop-ups. You can see this feature in action, in this blog itself.

To start with, first of all, you should know that apart from Blogger there is a Beta version of blogger too, with a sub-domain “Draft” :- Draft.Blogger.com
In this beta version of blogger some improved features are added.

Now follow these steps:
1. Go to draft.blogger.com, and NOT to blogger.com, and login as usual
2. Now go to Settings tab
3. Now click on comments link
4. Then in front of Comment Form Placement, select the radio-button of Embedded below post

5. Now go to “Layout” Tab
6. Then click on “Edit HTML
7. Now check the box of Expand Widget Templates
8.Then search for this code:

<b:include data=’post’ name=’comments’/>

9. And immediately after this, add this code-line:

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

That’s it….Now your visitors can easily comment on your posts without leaving the page.

Hmm, didn’t work for me. Followed your directions to the letter — what I get is a big blank space under the post where the comment form *should be* but no comment form.
Argh. 🙁
The code for the comment form seems to be in the right place in the generated page — just no comment form.

Hi Paul
I checked your site, now it’s working fine, can you please explain what was going wrong, so that it may help other bloggers too …

Happy too. I used your information above (by the way, other info on your site worked perfectly, so thanks for doing this!!!), and got the results above. Spent some time going back and forth between draft blogger and regular, and finally figured it out: as of a few weeks ago, the “embedded comment form” is no longer a draft feature, it’s part of regular blooger. Apparently sticking in your code on draft, AND enabling embedded comments on the non-draft editing page caused a conflict in code…what made it really bad was that after doing your mod, and downloading my template,… Read more »

Thanks a lot Paul, for telling and describing everything in so detail, I hope others, will also get the benefit from your comments, as even I didn’t know that non-draft blogger has now started the “comment-form” option….

Well if you have logged in to draft.blogger.com and still getting error, that may be because of the cache memory of your browser. So change your internet browser (IE or Firefox of Opera etc) and try this again. If still getting an error, comment here.
And please do not post anonymously, or at least leave a link to your blog, so that I can check your blog while replying !

Hmmm

actually now there’s no need to go to Draft.Blogger.Com for doing this hack, as Blogger has shifted this feature from beta blogger to Blogger.com.

So just try this out:

First go to settings. Select the Comment Form Placement as “full page” option.
Check in the blog if it’s working.

Then again go to settings, and select the option “Embedded below post“. Now if the form appears directly then it’s well and fine. Otherwise, go to layout
And then add that New line to the code and check your blog.

Thank you so much for this! Works just fine. There’s just a small problem though- I have 2 comment forms now(though I copied-pasted the code just once). Any ideas on how I could fix this? Thanks again!

Delete the line;

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

from your template, check your blog, and go to settings, set the comment form placement as pop-up or full page.
Save it.
Then again select as comment form placement as "embed below post"then again add that line to your blog template.
