Spice Up Your Blog Threaded Comment Style For Blogger

Posted : Friday, August 30, 2013 | Post Author : Paul Crowe |  Categories:,,

I have received a lot of Emails and comments over the last year or so asking about the comments we use here on Spice Up Your Blog.When Blogger introduced threaded comments early last year I wanted a bright looking comment section with the authors comments easy to distinguish from readers comments.

The solution we came up with using some simple CSS adds some cool style to the comment and avatars as well as showing the author comment (That would be your comments on your blog) in a different color.We also overlap the commenter name with their avatar.All unique features for Blogger comments and originally for Spice Up Your Blog but so many have copied it without permission I though we might as well share it with all our readers.

The comments are almost the exact same as you see here on SUYB with some subtle differences so you can see exactly how it will look on your blog by checking out the demo below and scrolling to the comments.

  1. Thank you so much for this!!



  2. When replying on a Blogger post using a WordPress username, you appear as a ‘no-reply’ poster. I mean that the Blogger host cannot click and reply to your post. Do you know the workaround for that??





  3. Ohhh good point!


  4. Is this an issue specific to this comment style?


  5. Awesome style.

  8. Cool Paul. I like ComLuv. I can see a threaded style resonating with commentors. Thanks for the share.


  9. You are doing a great job especially for non-techie bloggers who don’t know much about these tech shits. I will apply this plugin of threaded comments on my blog
