Sorry To Post Twice In One Day

As the title says, I am sorry to post twice in one day, but I've done some tweaking, and now I can reply directly to comments, thus meaning that I can engage in proper conversation. The only downside is that I cannot rely on responding to comments to cover up a days blogging, as I do insist on posting every, damn, day. It gets tough sometimes, but so far I'm making it.

Anyway, if you're interested in doing this tweak for your blog http://www.folsol.com/2010/11/add-reply-comments-option-in-blogger.html is one of the places to go learn how to do it, but they all give the same way to do it.

Also, it means that now comments will be done in a pop up window (sorry!) but it is the only way for you to click the box that emails you if I comment back, and I do advise clicking the little box, unless you want to be checking posts to see if I left a reply (though that'll build traffic, do that one instead!)

So yes, I did a slight re-design there Neon :P But am yet to do a proper redesign, I kinda like the way it looks, and I've tried messing around with other templates, with bad results. So if you have a suggestion, then feel free to leave a comment as to what it might be.

And of course, click the little box that says you want email notification when you get replies :P

Also please note that yes, this does mean other bloggers as well as myself can comment on your comments, so play nice folks!

  1. I don't get it.. why couldn't you reply to other's comments before? I can do it without much problem right now.

    Chances are I'm quite stupid at some things. I could reply before but not like this. I could leave a comment on my posts but unless people check my posts again (and very few people do) there would be no way to know there was a reply.

    Oh, ok.. most people, once they get on the internet, start to instantly suffer from ADHD, so it's kinda understandable, I guess.
    I usually check back, if there's by some accident a reply to my comment. :P

    The system works! Sorry but I am smiling that it works even though I had already tested it with myself. I got over my internet ADHD (kind of, SU brought it back lol) I find myself occasionally checking back sometimes, but this is just a lot easier and saves everyone some time. When you follow like 100 blogs checking them more than necessary kind of becomes something you don't think of lol.

  5. Grats on keeping up a post a day. I try to be as regular as possible, but don't want to make unreachable goals. I also have web ocd.

  7. I should consider doing this. Replying in these are a bit of a mess.

  8. @badscribblerThe only slightly annoying thing is now I get an email that someone has made a comment I need to allow, and then I get an email after that saying a comment has been made. I'm sure a little tweaking will fix that, or just removing comment moderation.

  12. You are not allowed to post twice in one day. Come on! Think of the Children!

    That's a pretty nifty feature

  13. I don't mind posting from a comment box, it's not that bad. And two posts in one day isn't a bad thing either! :P

  14. @SoreLosersGaming Pop ups are the bane of the netizen :)

  15. Hm, somehow I liked the embedded reply box better :/

  16. To your redesign:
    What I do at the moment is I build my own template in Artisteer 3. You should google it, it's worth it and really easy.

  17. @Neon So did I, which means I might attempt yet more playing around, but I think that clicking a reply to post button brings up the pop up box no matter what.

  18. @NeonThanks for the tip, I'll give it a blast if I can wake up properly. I hate paint.net to say, make a background, but blogger really hates it when I try to use custom backgrounds.

  19. This comment setup looks nice. Not sure if it's quite as convenient as the embedded one, but it looks good.

    ReplyDelete
  20. @Sinclair It's not very convenient nah, and we all love convenience, but the convenience of being able to reply to posts quickly and easily makes it worth it, at least for me. Plus it does deter spam.

  21. That actually seems pretty neat, might actually do it.

Don't forget to subscribe to comments so you know if I say something back. If you want that is.
