Threaded commenting

You can now make general comments about a blog post or reply to another comment. 


We've changed our settings to take advantage of Blogger's new threaded commenting. This change also affects our web feed. We've been sending abbreviated posts (until jump break) to our forum.bigfamilynews.com mailing list subscribers. If you're on that mailing list, do you like receiving the full posts? Let us know below.

The threaded comments feature is new to Blogger, and we've got some kinks to work-out with "Reply" on this blog. If you experience any problems, please comment or Email the author so that we can better understand the situation and give you our prompt attention. Thank you for this consideration.

  1. Works great on http://www.lovenymusic.com/, but I'm having trouble on http://forum.bigfamilynews.com/.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Although they are included in the comments count, Replies do not appear in our Recent Comments sidebar gadget on http://www.lovenymusic.com/.

    Also, starting Jan 12, 2012, and on both public blogs, the comment timestamp is 3 hours earlier than our time zone (ET) formatting.

    Reported both issues to Blogger.

    1. Comments timestamp still appears in Pacific Time (Google/Blogger HQ) and not our Eastern Time setting.

    2. Happily, our comments timestamp on this blog is restored to ET not PT.

  5. Some of our custom-coding might be interfering with threaded commenting. Today, I contacted a design firm to see if they can resolve for us.

  7. Sorry to report website design firm has not responded to Jan 16, 2012, Email to hire. Although I edited html to revert widget templates to default, Reply option in threaded comments is still not working here. Email the author link is temporarily unavailable due to these html edits and we are working to resolve these issues.

    1. Reply is now working in threaded comments on this blog.

      Delete
    2. Functions like Email the author at bottom of posts requires coding which we removed to maximize threaded comments. Will continue working to resolve and restore. Thanks for your patience.
