One of the most popular posts on Spice Up Your Blog over the last few years has been "How to add comment replies to your blog".While that tutorial was a valid option to allow readers to reply to comments it did not place the reply to each comment in a threaded fashion.In fact many of the comments on that post asked was it possible to have the reply placed under the original comment.After so many many requests the Blogger Team have taken note and today Threaded comment replies are now available on Blogger.You can see on our comment form below comment have a reply button and the replies are placed below the original comment.

How to activate comment replies on Blogger


For most people the threaded comment replies will be activated automatically on your blog.If you cant see the comment replies here is a check list to get them working :

Comment form is set as embed - Go to your settings > Comments > Comment Form Placement > Tick "Embedded below post" and make sure to scroll to the foot of the page and save.

Site feed is set to full - Got to settings > Site feed > Allow Blog Feeds > From the drop down menu choose " Full" and make sure to scroll to the foot of the page and save.

Clear the cache- It could be a cache issue so clear your browsers cache.Instructions for all browsers can be found Here.

If none of the above work check out the Blogger Threaded Comments Errors And Tutorials.

That's it, its good to know the Blogger team listen to the users and work hard to implement their suggestions.

  1. Sweet!

    I saw this a couple of hours ago and have been waiting for you to post coz i have a question ;D

    now, i understand the directions and have confirmed them BUT the part that states "Site feed is set to full" is the problem:

    I recently started auto updating my posts to facebook via networkedblogs and rss feed and i realised that when "site feed is set to full" instead of "until break", my auto-posts on facebook and rss feed don't know how much information to give in the description.

    Do u understand what i mean?

    Is there any way to fix this?

    Thanx in advance Paul!

  2. Blogger comment is nice but i think disqus is better

  3. What if we had incorporated your quick fix in the past for replying to comments. Will this affect the use of the new threaded comments? Do I need to do anything (delete code, etc.) to ensure that this new feature works properly?

  6. After receiving your Email I added this feature to blogs with similar settings, but cannot get it to work on family blog URL http://forum.bigfamilynews.com/. Any ideas? Thanks, in advance.

  7. I've still got the coding you supplied last year on my template - will that need to come off now? If I decide not to go to a full feed does that mean that I will never be able to have nestled blogger comments?

  8. On my blog comment replies have been activated automatically and I like it. In recent days Google screwed up my Picasa photo uploading by connecting it to Google+. I wasn't too happy with them. I did eventually on my own get it fixed up. It's hard for me to get mad a people that are supplying a service at not $$$ cost to me. Thanks for the heads up on this new feature.

    2. Is this how it looks Paul? threaded comment? or is this a modification on your part?.
      It's really great, just that the 'ADMIN' blotch covers some of your text.

  9. I use the Disqus-tool - like it very much, since you can also edit your reply after you've published it! :-D

  10. Thanks for putting this, but for some reason I have Google Chrome BUT I can't reply. The buttons there and I can reply on other people's blogs, but I can't reply on my own. Is this something I should be worried about and if so, how can I fix it?

  11. That sounds awesome! But I've done all the above and I can't seem to get the reply button on the comments. Do you think it might be the template? Here's my blog: http://book-spark.blogspot.com/

  13. Great post, but I cannot reply comments on my blog... Maybe because I edited manualy my HTML code?

    Can I find somewhere code for "comments reply" ?
    Please HELP :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Argh! I can't seem to get mine to work. I have edited the HTML so that I can have numbered comments. Do you think this has something to do with it?

  21. It seems many people have the same problem I have. I am not able to reply to those who comment on my blog, and yes, I did complete all the steps shown. I'm able to reply to someone else of another blogger blog, but not my own. This is so frustrating. It seems like blogger needs to work out a few kinks.

  22. I did all three things to try to activate comment replies to no avail. :0(

  24. Thank you...
    BTW, Is there any way to change the "Reply" Text to a button?
    Please help!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I got so many emails from people outside the US, telling me they couldn't comment on the blog unless the comments were in pop up window format, that eventually I changed it to that. Seems a bummer I have to change it to embedded just to get the threaded reply. Seems like there are lot of bugs still yet.

  32. I've been wondering about this for ages, people who had it didn't know they had it and hadn't done anything to make it happened, so guessed it had to be down to setting something differently! I now have 'reply' Now, I'm off to see if it works!....yes it does! Will now link your page!

  33. I've done everything as highlighted in the tutorial(s) out there and it doesn't work. The reply button shows but nothing happens when I click it. It is a customized template.

    Any suggestions/help would be so very appreciated!

  35. It works on mine, but IF I post a reply to someone who leaves a comment, I want my reply to be sent to them. How do I get that done?? Thanks in advance for help!

    ReplyDelete
  36. You totally rock!! (Blogger is so hard to figure out.)

    ReplyDelete
  37. I was wondering, is there a setting I need to tweak so that the person I'm replying to gets notified? For instance, I've left a comment on another's blog to which they've replied and I was notified by email. But some blogs I haven't been notified, so unless I go back to that blog post I won't know if they've replied to my comment or not. Something I'm doing wrong?

  47. I have been trying to enable threaded comments on my blog for a few weeks now. I have a custom template, and I know that is the problem. However, dispite bing fairly fluent in html, I do not have any of the "trouble code" that most of the forums point to potentially causing the problem. Any chance you could help me out? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  48. thanks, i actually found the link you provided by buzz.blogger.com extremely easy.
    I'd like to point out mine were initially not working - THEN:
    i had to reset (and get rid of the pop-up window comments) to:

    Settings> posts and comments> comment location> embedded

    **and you are good to go** the REPLY option appears below each comment.
    awesome! :))

  60. I have a template with seemingly reply comments already added, but when I reply to a comment it comes to my inbox instead and I don't think the person who left the comment actually get my reply. Any idea why?

    I didn't know why blogger had removed the reply link to comments, but once I restored the site feed to full it reappeared. You're a life saver.
