Wanna see something spiffy?

Click the comments link on this post. Blogger comments have been revamped. Congratulations to CW and the rest of the team. It's pretty cool.

Your picture will even show up here, if you have one in your Blogger profile. Neat.

Nifty! I suppose I really should update my blog so people can leave my spiffy comments as well. :)

It's pretty coolamundo, except for the bummerish part of having to wait 30+ seconds to get to this comments page. Can't Google throw a few extra rows of computers at the problem and speed things up a bit? ;)

I like it, too. But I'd like to figure out how to take people directly to the new page without having to click on "post a comment" first. Any ideas?

Graham said...

Yes, there are a couple of new template tags you can use. You can either reset your template to one of the defaults (which have all been updated) or you can read this Help article on comment tags. The first chunk of code there is the part that has changed.

Thanks, Graham. I'll try it. Of course, what I usually do when I want a solution is look at your template(s). That's how I figured out how to inset a photo into the text of a post. Some day I'm going to figure out how you rotate your profile pics.

Thanks again -- I enjoy reading your many blogs.
