Add A Unique Reply Button To Blogger Comments

reply button blogger comments
Back in March this year in what has become one of the most popular posts on Spice Up Your Blog i showed you How to add a reply option to the Blogger Comments.Once added the a reply link was added to all the comments and you and your readers can reply directly to a comment.Obviously lots of you have added the reply option to your blogs comments so i thought i would add some extra features to it.In the original tutorial we added the Text '[Reply to comment]' so lets spice it up a little and replace that text with a button or image.Also i have added a title to the reply option and set it to float on the outside of the comment body, a better option with better design.

If you haven't added the old reply option we will show you how all the steps required, If you have already added the text reply option to your blogger comments i will show you how to change the text to an image or button.

Update Jan 2012 - Blogger have added this as default find out more here - Threaded Comment Replies Added To All Blogger Comment Forms.

Live Demo : You can see a working demo of the comments with reply button Click Here.

Important

You must now add your blogs ID to the code, replace YOUR-BLOG-ID-HERE in red with your blogs ID.You can get your Blogs ID by going to your blogs Design Page, Posting Page, Settings Page or any page accessed from your dashboard.

Your Blogs ID will be in the address bar like this :



Once you have added your Blogs ID save your template and the reply button has been added to your Blogger comments.

OK the next tutorial is Only For People that have already added the text reply from our previous post.For everybody else the button should now be on your blog so check it out..

Replace The Text Reply With An Image

If you added the text reply you can change it to a Button.
To do this follow the steps as above then find this code in your template :

[Reply to comment]

Now Replace that code with one of the fllowing (See The Button Demos Above) :

  4. I was wondering if it's possible to use this without the pop-up. I have an imbedded comment form and it looks kinda weird when you want to reply to a comment and suddenly get a second comment form in a pop-up window.
    Thanks for a great post!

    I'm can't catch onto the "Once you have added your Blogs ID" part. I have the ID number, but where do I add it to?

  13. @Casey O Ryan - The Post has two tutorials, one for people that previously add a text reply and one for people that never had a reply option.You only need to follow the first part as far as "Once you have added your Blogs ID save your template and the reply button has been added to your Blogger comments".If the button isn't showing after that you may have made an error so give it another go..

    ReplyDelete
  14. @ Lily Nail - Hundreds of people have added the reply button so you must be making an error.Back up your template, take your time and I'm sure you can do it :D

  16. Hi Emily,

    The code is definatly working in fact i added it to a blog i was hired on yesterday.Have another go and make sure to take your time i'm sure you will get it !

    ReplyDelete
  17. I've tried this 5 times and I still don't see anything. I'm sure I'm following everything correctly maybe it takes time to show up?

    ReplyDelete
  18. @ Violet - It should be there straight away.I know it's working it is part of most jobs i take on so i use it a lot.Have you followed the first part of the tutorial only ?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I can get the button on my blog, but when I click on it, the pop up screen says "the webpage cannot be found." Am I doing something wrong, or is there something I should be aware of on my computer? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  20. You are awesome! Thanks so much for this, it was driving me nuts. If you come up with a way to make the replies embedded, like a thread, please post!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I added the button and it shows up but when I click on it to reply nothing happens. I also want to make sure that the person I am replying to gets notified that I am replying. Please help.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Janelle - If the reply pop up is not appearing you must have added the code incorrectly :(, Take your time and try again.I'm afraid the only way people can be notified of follow up comments is if the subscribe to the comments on a post.The best you can do is add a message above the comment form as i have here informing them of this.

    ReplyDelete
  23. @ Liz - That only happens when your blog ID has been entered incorrectly.Below the button codes i have instructions on adding your blogs ID with a screenshot, take your time and make sure you get it right.

    ReplyDelete
  24. To those who aren't seeing the reply button: on my Blogger, the "Preview" was not sufficient to view the new reply button, but "Save Template" was. Back up your original template first, then take the plunge and "Save Template" to see the change.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks for the gr8 tricks. Its working on my blog but not perfectly. I got the reply button in every comments but whenever I click on it a window is appearing showing this error message.
    ......
    We're sorry, but we were unable to complete your request.
    When reporting this error to Blogger Support or on the Blogger Help Group, please:

    Describe what you were doing when you got this error.
    Provide the following error code and additional information.

    .........
    Have any one faced this problem? Can u help me Paul to get out of this?

    ReplyDelete
  26. This could be down to adding your blog id incorrectly or just another of those annoying bx errors that fixes itself in time.Make sure you have the blog id added correctly and if it still don't work leave it and see if it fixes itself over the next few days.

    Paul.

  27. LOVE the reply button- but having one big issue

    The reply button took off the COUNT feature on replies- this is really helpful for giveaways. Any idea how to make the 2 work together? When you've got over 50 entries (sometimes HUNDREDS), having them numbered is necessary!!!

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  28. Will adding this feature email the person who commented to let them know that I have replied back to them or will they have to check on their own?

    ReplyDelete
  29. @Brandi - I'm afraid it will not let them know there was a reply.People must subscribe to replies, you can add a message as i have above the comment form to let them know this.In your comments settings you will see a place to add a message above the comment form.

    Paul.

    ReplyDelete
  30. This was so easy to follow. However, the button is only showing up on the first comment each time. How do i fix this?

    ReplyDelete
  31. took me a while to get this to work, i realised it doesn't work if you have your comments page as a pop up. I changed it to embed in post and it works beautifully

    thankyou!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I still do not understand how to add a reply button I followed the steps but it did not work, can you help me?

    ReplyDelete
  33. @Cat - The code is working and i know it's frustrating but you must be going wrong somewhere along the line.Have you the comment form embedded, a recent comment told me it does not work with pop up comments.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I did this and a reply button only comes up on the first comment? any ideas what i have done wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  35. @ Outfits. - I dont know why that is happening, i had other say the same thing but it's worked fine every time i used it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Cool tip. I was directed to your post because of this function. It's been drving me crazy, I don't get many comments, but the ones I do have I couldn't do a proper reply, but I've sort it out now. Thanks, of now to find what else I can do :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am having the same problem as Jennifer ... my reply button only shows up on the first comment. I have tried moving the code to different locations around the tag mentioned but it jsut is not showing on on each of the comments. When I click the reply to button it shows all of the comments but the reply is specifically for the first one.

    ReplyDelete
  38. FYI ... for the first comment only post it looks like a work-around is to post the code after the "" tag. I have it showing up now for all but deleted comments. I don't know why it wasn't working on the "" ... maybe that isn't included in all posts or comments.
    Something else to try would be to put it after the "" and see if it shows up ... I don't feel like messing with it since it appear to be working now.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi Paul, this is an awesome feature, my question is.... I get the button on the comments, but when I go to reply, a window pops up and I post my reply to the comment and this reply goes to the bottom ... what I would ideally like is, that my reply is directly below every individual comment, is that possible?

    ReplyDelete
  40. @ Manasi - You are looking for threaded comments and I'm afraid we would all like threaded comments but Blogger are really dragging their heels on this feature.For now there is no way to create threaded comments.You could use an outside comment plugin like Disqus or Intense Debate, both have that feature.

    Paul.

  41. Hii Paul, i did exactly like u said but nothing showed up!!:(

  42. This was SO helpful,thank you! Not just the code and directions (so easy to follow) but I never knew about opening a 'search' box to find code... what a great tool!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I didn't have the code you used, but I did have



    I entered your reply button code after that and it works like a gem. Just in case others have the same coding . . .

    Thank you!

  45. Hi. The reply button is showing up after each comment but when I click on it I'm getting

  46. @nurse.. - In general that error has been because the ID was incorrect, if your sure the ID and code was entered correctly i don't know why its not working.I added this code to a blog i was working on this week and it worked.Sorry i can give you more insight but the code is perfect and i cant see why it wont work for you ......

  47. I love these tutorials! Thank you!

    One question... when I click the reply button and type a response, my comment is added after the original comment. How is it different than before? It seems like I'm just leaving a comment, same as before I had the button. Is the original commenter notified of my response??

  48. I would like to get an answer to Aimee's question...I'd like to be able to respond directly to the person who commented. Thanks :)

  52. Hi, i've done everything you wrote and the "Reply To Comment" shows up, but when I try to click it, an error appears: bX-aao4ju.

    Could you tell me how to fix this, if you know?

    Thank you.

  53. @ Derreken - A few people have returned this error and every time they had added their Blog ID incorrectly...

  54. I just followed your very easy to follow instructions to add this button to my blog. I'm so thrilled to have found you! I'm definitely bookmarking your blog and will be back to see how I can add more fun and useful things to my blog! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Thank you so much! I was scared I'm gonna mess this up, but it worked out perfectly :] The instructions are super easy to follow!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Thank you so much for this great hack! It's working for me, however, when I reply, all my replies are at the bottom and not under each contributor that I'm trying to reply to. How can I fix this?

    ReplyDelete
  57. @ Jennifer - I'm afraid that's how the script works :( .So far i have not come up with a way to have threaded comments and no one else has either..

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thanks for this great tip! I have added mine!

    ReplyDelete
  59. bX-aao4ju That error what can it means?????

  61. My reply button only shows up on the first comment. I've re-done the code a couple times, and I can't seem to fix it. Any ideas? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  62. How can I get it to appear at the bottom of the comment?

    ReplyDelete
  63. GREAT tute, thnx. It works like a charm :)

  65. is there any way go have email notification go back to the person who left a comment if I reply to his comment. ????

    ReplyDelete
  66. @ TAB - If the commenter clicks the subscribe by email link below the comment form they will get an Email when you reply.You can add a message like i have above the comment form telling them.Go to your settings then comments settings and you will see the option to add a message above the comment form.

    ReplyDelete
  67. hey, thanks for a great tutorial..

    ReplyDelete
  68. hi,thanks a lot for this tutorial.But is there anyway to change it to a "non-pop-out" window?

    ReplyDelete
  69. I've added it but it only shows up on the first comment on my blog, it dosnt show up on the rest of the comments so what do I do if i want to reply to someone else?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Thanks! For these easy steps. I did it and I see the reply buttons under each comment. I have one problem and don't know if there is a solution. When I reply to a comment it takes me to another screen with all the comments on it. And if I want to continue replying i have to go back to original screen and so on. Is there any way to reply underneath each comment in one page like in disqus. Like if you are chatting???
    Thanks 

    ReplyDelete
  71. I followed your instructions and after changing my comments to "embedded", I finally can see the reply button. Thanks!

    I have a question though - when I reply to one person, do the other people who have left comments get notified that a comment has been made or only the person to whom I repied?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Here's the thing. I just uploaded one of your blogger templates (Maparaan), and it looks and works great except it didn't have the default bookmarking social icons that the demo said it had, but I added one of your codes for a nicer one and it works. So I wanted to try this but it there is no : . I ticked expand the widget template, got the search bar (ctrl + F) and pasted the code to find it and nothing! Can you help?

    P.S I have no reply widget installed as yet.thank you in advance.

    ReplyDelete
  73. So sorry that I forgot to click 'subscribe by mail' as I asked my question yesterday. So I would just ask. My code does not have '' (cannot find it at all) can I use any other line of code, so I can place your code below and add the 'reply' button?

    ReplyDelete
  74. @ Tee - Code will not display in comments unless parsed.Make sure to tick the expand widget templates box before looking for the code.

    ReplyDelete
  75. @admin Ofcource I ticked the expand widgets template. That's what is so confusing to me. As I explained before it simply does not have the code. What I did find was, data:comment.authorAvatarImage | data:comment.author|timestamp|body and
    but not the line of code given. So what should I do? Is it a error in the template? Should I get a new one or can I fix it?

    Your help and expertise is gladly and gratefully asked and accepted.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Not able to find the "" code in my custom template. I ticked Expand Widget Templates

    ReplyDelete
  77. Not working on my blog either.

    ReplyDelete
  78. You are a life saver!!! I LOVE this tutorial. I haven't had a blog long, but I didn't understand why replying wasn't an option. Thanks for writing this :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. I get html with the ID of the person I'm commenting on in the comment box. How do I get rid of that? Thanks so much.

    ReplyDelete
  80. :( boo hoo, this didnt work for me.. i followed your instructions precisely Paul.. thanks so very much for this although it didnt work for me, i'll try again in the future :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Hi There - I really like your "stay connected with free updates" box. Can you please tell me where I can get the gadget (or code) for it. It is way cool and would look great on my new site. Thanks Annie

    ReplyDelete
  82. I couldn't get past step one. I did step one then hit control F and "More Info" but it did not find that phrase - only "More" was found. What should I do?

    ReplyDelete
  83. @ Beth - I think you misunderstood.CTRL F generates a search box to find the snippet of code, more info is just a link to a post on how to use CTRL F.OK that now sounds confusing :) Click the more info link to see how to use the search bar.I might make a video for this post for extra help as it is a bit tricky.

  84. Hi, I just tried to install the reply button on my blog and received the following error:

    We were unable to save your template

    Please correct the error below, and submit your template again.
    More than one widget was found with id: HTML9. Widget IDs should be unique.

    Any suggestions on how to fix this or work around it? Same thing happened to me minutes earlier when I also tried to install the 'sexy share' code. Thanks in advance for your help!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Outstanding! If you follow the steps you provide carefully, even someone like me who's never touched HTML can add a reply button in just 2 minutes! I'm impressed! Thank you! My blog is now less confusing, as far as the comments go anyway.

  86. Thanks! The lack of a reply button is really the most irritating feature of blogger.

    ReplyDelete
  87. I'm not able to find "data:commentPostedByMsg". I ticked the Expand Widget Template but still no change :( Is it because of my template which I downloaded from other site?

    ReplyDelete
  88. I very much would like to add my voice of appreciation for this feature -- it was irritating me no end that I could not make a direct reply to a comment on my own blog!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Thanks so much that was very helpful!~

    ReplyDelete
  90. Thank you for the great tutorial! It worked the first time. :]

    ReplyDelete
  91. Thank you so very much for your clear, easy to understand instructions. I appreciate all the tips, advice and helpful code that you offer, that I would not be able to do on my own. Thank you thank you thank you ♥♥
    It's odd that Blogger doesn't have this feature in it. It just makes sense to have it.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I am a little confused actually. Somehow I had thought that the reply button would add in my reply directly below the comment I am replying to? Instead it added a comment with @ in front of the name of the person I am replying to. Is this what it is supposed to do?
    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  93. Worked perfectly... clear instructions! Your the best!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Is there anyway to add a reply that will notify the person you are replying to their comment? Using the above directions, I was successful in adding it, however the person would need to revisit my page, correct?

    ReplyDelete
  95. Worked on the first try, thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  96. Thanks bro. I try it on my blog and it works like a charm.
    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  97. Why still need to pop up to reply? Can't the button return the code to the comment form and scroll to it?

    Thanks for this, but hope sb can improve.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Thanks I had already added the button but every time i clicked on it, it turned to as an error message.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Thank you! This was easy to understand, now I have my reply button :)

  103. Hello!!

    This is great, but I have a problem!

    I managed to get my reply button in place on my blog. BUT when I click on it I get this error message:

    Not Found
    Error 404

    Why's that?

    ReplyDelete
  104. thanks so much, perfect...quick and easy :)

  105. I have added the comment icon, but when I click on it, it goes to all of the comments. How do I comment to individuals?
    I am a teacher trying to respond to my students.

  106. Thanks. I just implemented this on my blog and am very happy with the results, Oh Blogger and your non-features and the people who work around them. :) Thanks again.

  107. I added this in my blog and it works but I would like the reply to go to the comment form which is below the post and not to open a window for the comment.
    I hope you understood what I'm saying...
    thank you

    ReplyDelete
  108. Great directions, so easy to follow, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  109. Thanks, I added this and it worked the first time. Is there anyway to have the reply post directly below the person though, instead of making a whole new comment with the @ symbol? Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  110. Thanks so much for this it works great! So helpful :D

    ReplyDelete
  111. This is what I got after I followed the instructions :

    We're sorry, but we were unable to complete your request.

    The reply button is there but I can't still write my reply. Huhu . . Please help!

    ReplyDelete
  112. hooray!!! I now have a Reply button. I feel like a real blogger now. ;o) Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Thanks for sharing! Somebody commented on my blog today for the first time (whoo, first time blogger) and I was wondering why they didn't have a reply option. Now my blog will be easier for replies! :D

    ReplyDelete
  114. I tried to do this and I *thought* I followed the directions exactly, but I don't see the reply button anyplace. I clicked on an existing comment and didn't see any sort of reply button (I tried two different formatted buttons just in case there was a problem with the code). I had to choose to look at the blogger's old web interface in order to follow directions. Do you think they disabled something?

    ReplyDelete
  115. I added your reply to my blog, it works so great.

    Now I only have this question:
    After I reply to a certain comment will they be able to see the reply from their email or own blog or do they have to come back to my blog to see if thy got a reply?

    Thanks Mary

    ReplyDelete
  116. hey! I tryed two reply variants but it didn't work for some reason. I followed the instructions but still nothing. what could be the problem?

  117. Hi
    Is there any way to add the button in threaded comments introduced by the blogger?

    ReplyDelete
  118. Good explanation.I will try it into my blog. Thanks.

  119. I love the idea of adding a scroll box widget. It is the simplest way to add beauty and technicalities to a blog. It makes the blog more compelling as well.

  120. does this work on a pop-up comment window?
