Comment Form Placement

Yesterday's post was an effort to answer Ron's Question that was posted on eBlog Templates.

As I explained in that little history yesterday, I've decided to create a new blog using Dilectio's template. Improving Dilectio will specifically deals with Blogger or BlogSpot's user who are using Dilectio template.

Hopefully with Mr. David Cowgill's (the founder of eBlog Templates) endorsement, questions posted on his Dilectio Comments Section will be answered here. Also at the same time gadgets adding, codes hacking, tweaking will be done here too. In other words, Dilectio templates will be disassemble by taking out all her bolts and nuts and then we gonna patch her up again. Only this time we gonna load her with extra ammunition! I'm very sure in due course Dilectio will be the grandest template on BlogSpot and Blogger.

Wow! Looked like we have gone off mark. Okay, let us get back to the main topic.

As you have noticed, in yesterday post I've failed to get Ron's comment embedded below his post. As a last resort I've to choose 'Pop-up window' for his comment form placement. Well at least someone was able to leave a comment or two coz before these no one was able to leave a comment on his blog! It's very easy to change your comment form placement. Here's how;

After signing in to your Blogger account, you will be taken to your Dashboard --> Settings --> Comments where you clicked on Pop-up window in the comment form placement's section. That's it.

Anyhow, I was still not satisfied even after Ron thanking me for getting his comments back. Several months ago, I did published a post about inline comment during the early days when the Blogger team had a new toy (feature) in embedded comment form addresses. A must read back then for those who used too much edited or customized templates and for those who were having hard times placing their comments embedded below post. Here's the post, Comment Form Placement.

Read the above post on Blog carefully coz we gonna do the same as before. The only difference was that after finding;

<p class='comment-footer'>
<a expr:href='data:post.addCommentUrl' expr:onclick='data:post.addCommentOnclick'>


we gonna change it with these line of codes;

<p class='comment-footer'>
<b:if cond='data:post.embedCommentForm'>
<b:include data='post' name='comment-form'/>
<b:else/><a expr:href='data:post.addCommentUrl' expr:onclick='data:post.addCommentOnclick'>

Voila! That's how Improving Dilectio got her comment embedded under the post!

Oh yeah, before you do anything to your template, by all means please back-up your template. Just in case anything goes wrongs or your xml codes suddenly decided to go on a riot, I'm sure your back-up will save you more in a thousand folds. Believe me, been there and all that...

That's it for now. See you later in another exciting post.

Greetings and lots of love from Kuale Kangsor, Malaysia.

Leaving comment on Dilectio

Updates: Even after several tries, Comment Form Placement (the one that embedded below post) is not feasible. As a last resort, I've to make do with Pop-up window type of comment form placement. Well, at least someone can still manage to leave a comment or two on this blog as well as Ron's. It's really simple. After signing in to your account, from Dashboard --> Settings --> Comments and click on Pop-up windows for your Comment Form Placement.

Can someone try to comment on my blog?

Please kindly check it out and give me some advice.

Above was Ron's questions on eBlog Templates, but before I proceed any further I would like to tell you a little bit of history first. David, the CEO of eBlog Templates has called me to help him out after reading one of my posts on, Solving Dilectio Blogger Template.

I've to thanks David for giving me the chance to be on his team even on a very small scale. I was having the time of my life especially when I managed to solve some of the problems found on eBlog Templates.

That's why I created this new blog to help me to understand more about Dilectio template because none of my other blogs were using Dilectio. This blog will be used to improve Dilectio template via questions by Dilectio many user.

Okay, to answer Ron's question I would like Ron or anyone reading this post to leave a comment or two for this post. If anyone or Ron was able to leave a comment on this blog, I'm afraid Ron has to upload a new Dilectio template. By the way, I'm not changing anything yet. I'm leaving Dilectio as it is, for now.

That's all for now. Till we meet again on another post, for another question.

Greetings and lots of love from Malaysia.
