Embedded Comment Form Missing on Blogger

After the blogger server crash a few weeks ago I found that my embedded comment box was no longer showing. In its place was just a blank space. I have since found the solution by comparing the template with a backup i did a few months ago. Here is the solution.

I discovered that a certain block of code from the template had been deleted from my blog and by restoring this block of code the comment box was restored.

1) First locate this block of code in the html template editor. Remember to click on Expand widget templates. This code may appear multiple times and you have to replace the missing code for every place this block of code appears.

<h4 id=”comment-post-message”></h4>
<a id=”comment-editor-src”></a>
<iframe id=”comment-editor” name=”comment-editor” src=”” height=”410″ width=”100%” frameborder=”0″></iframe>
</span><a title=”Delete Backlink”>
<span class=”delete-comment-icon”> </span>

2) Insert this following block of code into the place where i put the XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

<div id=”comment-popup” style=”width: 100px; height: 20px;”>        <iframe id=”comment-actions” name=”comment-actions” height=”240″ width=”320″ frameborder=”0″ scrolling=”no”></iframe></div>
<script type=”text/javascript”>// <![CDATA[
<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; BLOG_CMT_createIframe(&#39;<data:post.appRpcRelayPath />&#39;, &#39;<data:post.communityId />&#39;);<br />&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
// ]]></script>

3) Save and you’re done!
