The New Comments system on Blogger

I'm sure the bloggers, lucky enough to have this new feature, will agree with me that it looks great!

Blogger has celebrated it's 11th birthday with a new Comments system - and it's about time! This one looks very shiny, and is as simple as it can be, yet as complex as it should be. Blogger has integrated Google's SPAM filter into this feature, and it will give bloggers everywhere a safer experience - if they use it!

The indication that you have the new Comments system on your blog, is that you will see a new 'Tab' - Comments : -

Click on that Tab, and the next image/screen will appear. This screen gives you three (3) viewing options:

  • Published Comments
  • Comments awaiting moderation (if you have it selected)
  • Suspected SPAM comments

This sleek system provides an alternative to the tiresome email-way of getting comments, moderating them, clicking on Publish etc. It really is convenient.

Removing Comments is also very easy. Blogger has provided a Tab called 'Remove Content'. This feature allows the author of the comment, or the blog owner, to remove the content of a comment, yet retain a record that there was a comment made. This could be handy for your stats, or personal reasons.

You can also remove that comment - permanently. See the next images:

Summary? I think it's great. It's sleek, shiny, and works! Unusual for Blogger to attain all of those in one go! (Now, it's just a matter of waiting for something else to explode! ha ha ha!)
