Step 4. Save Your Template, But we are not finished.

In the next step you need to find a section of code in your template and add two extra snippets of code to it.When testing this i found older and custom Blogger templates are different to templates from the Blogger templates designer.For that reason i have two separate methods.The first is for people with Blogger templates that are not from the template designer the second is for templates from the template designer....Got It ....

Users With Custom And Older Blogger Templates Follow These Steps


Step 1. Now we need to edit the following section of code in your template.Finding a section of code can be hard so the best way is to find the first line (Use The Ctrl F Search Method) and work from there.If you cant find the first line look for the second line, remember Blogger templates can have different code so it might not look exactly the same.

<dd class='comment-body'>
<b:if cond='data:comment.isDeleted'>
<span class='deleted-comment'><data:comment.body/></span>
<b:else/>
<p><data:comment.body/></p>
</b:if>
</dd>

Step 2. OK you have located the section of code, we now add two snippets of code to it.You can see the two snippets and were i have added them below in red.

<b:if cond='data:comment.author == data:post.author'>
<dd class='comment-body-author'>
<p><data:comment.body/></p>
</dd>
<b:else/>

<dd class='comment-body'>
<b:if cond='data:comment.isDeleted'>
<span class='deleted-comment'><data:comment.body/></span>
<b:else/>
<p><data:comment.body/></p>
</b:if>
</dd>

</b:if>

<dd class='comment-footer'>
<span class='comment-timestamp'>
<a expr:href='"#comment-" + data:comment.id' title='comment permalink'>
<data:comment.timestamp/>
</a>
<b:include data='comment' name='commentDeleteIcon'/>
</span>
</dd>
</b:loop>
</dl>

Step 3. Once your happy you have the code in the right place you can save your template and check it out.
