New Blogger June 2008 - Embedded Comments

Many bloggers who depend upon comments as an essential part of their posts have never been content with comments in a separate window - popup or not. Occasionally, you see the anxious query
Does anyone know how to make all comments appear directly under the post?


Until now, the answer to that question has always been
Not under native Blogger, unfortunately.


With New Blogger June/July 2008, that limitation is no more. Now, you have a third option for displaying comments.
Embedded below post


Note that you may, or may not, see my test comment below this post. If you're viewing posts in archive view, or in main page view, you'll still see the comment link, and have to click on that. A page with multiple posts, and comments interspersed between the posts, would be too hard to read.

If you're viewing this individual post, inline comments "Embedded below post" make sense.

Here's a comment which you can see inline, if you're looking at the individual post.

If you're in main page view, or in archive view, you'll still see the link "1 Comments".

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
