Sherdie, fellow Brisvegas blogger, has asked for some tips on adding styles to Blogger comments. Many bloggers have tools for adding formatting to their posts, but not their comments.  I thought I’d post my answer here so that other bloggers can benefit as well.

We’ll cover just simple stuff, bold, italics and hyperlinks.

[Note to advanced web developers and XHTML coders: Nothing to see here folks. Move along.  Corners (and some W3C XHTML validation rules) will be cut.]

When can we use formatting?

Good news: Usually  Bad news: Not always.

Blogger Comment FormSome blogging software and some blog owners can turn off HTML formatting. Sometimes you just won’t know until you try it. A good indication that you can use HTML formatting is if the comment form says something like…

You can use some HTML tags, such as <b>, <i>, <a>

What is a Tag?

Very simply, a tag is something enclosed in angle brackets <>.  For example, <b> is the tag for “Turn Bold On”.

When your readers’ browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, whatever) encounter tags that they recognize, they will replace these tags with formatting.

Don’t forget the End Tag.

Note that each of the tags we are using here, work in pairs. That is, there is a Begin Tag and a corresponding End Tag which starts with a slash /. For every <b> (bold on), there must be a corresponding </b> (bold off).  This is important.

Bold

Surround the text you want to appear in bold with <b> and </b> tags.  Example, type this into the comment box:
  Sometimes I just want to <b>shout</b>!

Readers will see this:
  Sometimes I just want to shout!

Italics

Enclose the text you want to appear in italics with <i> and </i> tags.  Example, type this into the comment box:
  I thought, <i>Hang on a minute, Defrag!</i>

Readers will see this:
  I thought, Hang on a minute, Defrag!

Hyperlinks

Including a Hyperlink in a comment is very similar to Bold and Italic. Hyperlinks use the <a> (for “Active”) tag.

Step one is to enclose the text you want to appear as a hyperlink with <a> and </a> tags.  Example, type this into the comment box:
  You should read <a>MikeFitz's post</a>

If you leave it at that, readers will see this. Note that the hyperlink doesn’t work yet:
  You should read MikeFitz’s post

Step two is to include the address that you want to link to in the opening <a> tag.  This is done by including href="" in the tag. Then place the address between the two "" characters.  (The address is the thing that starts with http://. You probably already know that you can copy the address from the address bar at the top of your browser.)

For example, here we have added the href="":
  You should read <a href="">MikeFitz's post</a>

Finally, here it is with the address placed between the two "" characters:

  You should read <a href="http://mike.brisgeek.com/2006/08/30/simple-html-for-formatting-blogger-comments/">MikeFitz's post</a>

And here’s what readers will see:
  You should read MikeFitz’s post

Bold and Italics (Walking and Chewing Gum)

Bold and Italics can be combined provided they are nested correctly.  Example:
  I shouted: <b><i>Look Out!</i></b>

Readers will see:
  I shouted: Look Out!

This is an example of incorrect nesting.  The </i> should come before the </b>  Don’t do this:
  I shouted: <b><i>Look Out!</b></i>

Bold, Italics and Hyperlinks (Walking, Chewing Gum and Talking to your Mother on your Mobile)

Here’s a more complex example where correct nesting is important:

  One of my favourite books is
<a href="http://www.awprofessional.com/bookstore/product.asp?isbn=0201633612&rl=1"
title="Addison-Wesley website">
<i><b>Design Patterns</b>
: Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software</i>
 by Gamma, Helm, Johnson and Vlissides</a>.

Hopefully my fellow bloggers will find this information useful when commenting.

    You should have seen how long it took me to do that. I’ve always been of the trial-and-error school of html (aka the google and wikipedia school) so it’s nice to have it all set out. Also, didn’t know that nesting was important. So all silliness aside, thank you!

    Hello,
    I have a question: do you have the code/instruction for adding this “leave a reply” section for each post in Blogger?

  12. MikeFitz Says:

    Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/bri58020/public_html/mike/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 74

    G’day Kimsta. This is a self-hosted WordPress blog backed by a mySQL database. I’m pretty sure the code you are after is part of the WordPress software which is available free.

    However, I don’t think out-of-the-box Blogger allows you to enter comments on the same page as the post. Instead it takes readers off to a separate https:// page.

    Even if we could modify a Blogger template to include this “Leave a Reply” form, I doubt Blogger would give our code permission to write to the database where comments are stored. Interesting idea though.

    Cheers — Mike

    “You can use some HTML tags, such as <b>, <i>, <a>”

    The words, “such as” lead me to believe other tags I can use i the when commenting back. Are there other tabgs I can use? What are they?

    May I ask, is there any way to change allowed tags in comments box?
    (In wordpress I know there is, so I ask for blogger).
    Some wordpress blogs allow: object, embed, and img tags in comment box so yoy can embed a youtube video as a comment!
    What about blogger?

    Im folloing exactly what you say but my super awesome comment isent leading to superawesomedating.com when i use it on other sites.

    Either the link is just highlighted but is not clickable OR it creates a hyperlink to (for example) www.domain.com/post-title/comments-page-2/superawesomedating.com which ends up as a page not found error.

    Please help! Feel free to email me.

    Hi David,

    Your link is missing the “http://”

    Do this: <a href=”http://www.domain.com”>super awesome</a>

    NOT this: <a href=”www.domain.com”>super awesome</a>

    Without the “http://”, your link is interpreted as a page on the current site.

    A picture with a caption.

    Note that not all blogs will allow images, but if they do, here’s what you need for the image…

    <img src=”http://url_of_your_photobucket_image” />

    Your caption is then just plain text on the next line.

    thanks for the great tutorial Mike

    Came here via google, by the way.

    The tutorial works because you tell people exactly what to type. If I were to try and relay that to some one in a comments box it wouldn’t work because the tags would disappear (as they’re supposed to). Any idea how to get around that? Thanks again.

  54. MikeFitz Says:

    Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/bri58020/public_html/mike/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 74

    G’day mdix,

    Trick is, you cannot use < or > in a comment box because they will disappear if html is allowed.

    Instead of < use &lt;

    I’ve been trying to follow another set of instructions I found on Google, to do exactly this, but also leave anchor text. The way i read it is that one pasted the code in to the website box, at the start of the comment, but it has never worked!

    It seems, that I now have the clearest set of instructions I could hope for so, if you don’t mind, I’m going to give it a go now……….

    Okay, blah, blah, blah I’m going to talk about heating oil, because that’s what our company supplies in the UK, and use the keyphrase I was hoping to use which is heating oil Harrogate and then I prey for the html gods to smile on me

    Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /home/bri58020/public_html/mike/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 74

    Hi David, The trick is to include target=”_blank” in the <a> tag. EG…

    <a href=”http://somewhereelse.com” target=”_blank”>

    This will open the new page in a new browser window.

    Note that the World-Wide-Web Consortium no longer recommends this. Older browsers will behave as you expect but newer browsers (and devices) may not. Also, many folks are annoyed by extra windows “popping-up”. Finally, more and more browsers these days include “pop-up blockers” which may stop this from working altogether.

    I find that allowing HTML seems to attract spammers. They use the text above in their search string knowing they can leave a keyword link.
    Comment Luv as well as a spam captcha seems to weed most of them out and keeps the comment section looking cleaner.

    Just my opinion - I could be wrong.

    Yes Sy-guy, the html for Wordpress comments is the same, provided html is allowed by the blog author.

    As for colours:
    Type this…
    This is some <span style=”color:#f00″>red text</span>.
    and your readers see this…
    This is some red text.

    Can’t Blogger create an RSS feed that allows us to show ALL of our comments posted on different blog posting? It would be great if visitors to my blogs could read right on the front page and on every page what others are saying about all stories I post, or even the most recent comments posted … that would drive more people to read the posts and comment more

    Hi Mike,
    So, I came across your blog by Googling how to leave html in blog commenting, and I have to confess that I am a complete dummy when it comes to understanding HTML as it relates to leaving a comment on a blog. If a blog is nofollow, but they allow html in the comment, does that mean you can leave a link and it will be followed? I’m sorry to ask such a newbie question, but I really am trying to learn how to do commenting the right way, without offending the blog owner. Thank you for your time.

    I was nearly going to mark this as spam, because that’s what it is.  It doesn’t relate at all to the technical topic being discussed above.

    However, I’ll leave it here because this gives me an opportunity to correct it…

    It’s not Mitt Romney, nor is it Ron Paul (the link above goes to ronpaul2010.com) who will cost the republicans the election.  Rather, it is the Republicans’ general lack of empathy for their fellow man and our environment which will cost them the election.

    Hi Mike: Hope I’m doing this correctly - not used to Blogs. Trying to catch up on your comments and observations about the upcoming provincial election campaign in Quebec. I reside in Gatineau and have been a resident of this province for 60 years yet the separatists have never, ever made anglophones welcome here. They do not have any appreciation for our efforts to live peaceful and cooperative lives and they never will. They would be surprised to hear how many of us would fight to retain our Canadian citizenship should they ever try to remove us from Canada. You speak of partitioning off Montreal but there are many other areas of Quebec that will also be seeking partition should a vote for independence ever result in a yes vote. We need a new political party in Quebec that would stand up to these separatists and state loud and clear that we are willing to sign the constitution of Canada and are willing to work for a better life for all Canadians. They would be unpleasantly surprised how many votes this new party would receive as most of us in this area are sick and fed up with the whining and blackmail of the rest of Canada. Quebec is now so socialist (and I’m a Liberal by the way) that they are bankrupt and we can no longer afford all of these free programs and huge salary demands by the labour forces and unions. For heavens sake, a house painter earns just about the same amount of money as our doctors. What is wrong with this picture? We are becoming more and more communist each year with the government telling us where we can go to school, what language we can speak and what we can wear! Isn’t this how Nazi Germany started out? Don’t we ever learn?

    I find it interesting that Blogger allows the use of the <a> tag which permits all kinds of dangerous and spammy hyperlinks, but one cannot use the <code> tag.

    Blogger is used for all sorts of things from mindless rantings and pornography to political commentary and computer help. It makes it very difficult to explain typing commands without certain fonts or automatic formatting making the actual command unclear or unusable. For example:

    ls -a
    or
    dir /w

    would become:

    ls -a
    or
    dir /w

    I’m wondering how to make a hyperlink that allows me to comment as Marie@normaleverydaylife I want people to be able to click directly on that. I’ve seen people do it, but just can’t make it work for me.

    I can see that in the last comment, there is a link that works within the comment, but not in the name box?
