There are times when we upload new templates or edit them for design purpose, some codes get messed up. May be that's what happened to me and my reply button in blogger comments seemed to be dead (see the image below)
What I want to do now is
  • Insert the missing  HTML code for the blogger reply button in my comment section 
  • Activate Threaded comments (looks like steps) in my comment section as in G+ feature.
Insert the missing code for the reply button
Before coding, it is always a good idea to download your template for safety. After that, do the following steps.

Step 1: To write the missing code for Reply button, goto Dashboard ->My Blogs ->Template ->Edit HTML , and find the below code using (CTRL+F)

<b:includable id='threaded_comment_js' var='post'>

Step 2: Replace the above code in step1 with the below code.


Step 3: Save your template and Enjoy!

How to Activate Threaded comments
After making your Reply alive, lets try making it into a threaded style comment instead of usual pop-up style comment. Follow the below steps in order ,

Step 1: Goto My Blog -> Settings -> Other ->Site Feed , change "Allow Blog Feed" to "FULL"
Step 2: In My Blog -> Settings - > Posts and Comments -> Comment,
            change "Comment Location" as     "EMBEDDED"
Step 3: Goto My Blog -> Template -> Edit HTML . Using CTRL+F, find the following code ,
            
<b:include data='post' name='comments'/>

Step 4: Now, replace the above codes wherever occurring with the codes below ,

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;static_page&quot;'>
<b:if cond='data:post.showThreadedComments'>
<b:include data='post' name='threaded_comments'/>
<b:else/>
<b:include data='post' name='comments'/>
</b:if>
</b:if>

Step 5: Save the template.

Now, my reply button working like a charm. And so should yours :)

    3. Hi Anonymous,
      For your question, Go to your Blog's settings - > Posts and comments -> Comment Location under Comments - > Choose how your comments should appear like Pop-up, Embedded, etc.

      You should choose "Embedded" for your blog's comment to look like mine :)

  3. It says this code is not correct. I copy and paste the entire code, correct? That is a ton of code for replacing just that one little line so I thought I would make sure. This broken reply button is making me crazy!

    1. The post is written after trying it myself in this blog and I am replying you using the same.
      The first part is for the missing code for the reply button ( my reply button was inactive before)
      The second part is for activating threaded comments ( in case you wanted one apart from the normal reply ).
      So, kindly insert the codes as indicated above in "Insert the missing code for the reply button" and hopefully it should work. Good Luck!

    1. It means you have used two comment widgets. Revert back your widgets to default and then try using this method.

    1. Hi Fodi, Sorry for the late reply. Yes, you can replace the "reply" text with image by editing your source HTML. Use CTRL+F and find "reply". Instead of the "reply text", place the image url of your reply and save your HTML. It should work :)

    1. Hi Roo,
      Check under your Settings ->Posts and Comments->Comment Location -> Embedded should be enabled.
      If yes, work with the above codes again and see. Let me know if this works for you.

      Delete
    2. Hi! Thanks for the quick reply! I did have Embedded enabled and I worked with the second code for activating threaded comments, but it ended up hiding the comments. :/

      Delete
    3. In your case, instead of showing threaded comments,it hid it. The term " static page" we see in the above code is used for "selective display", and hence the codes worked that way. For this, we need to add another set of code just below the code in (step 4), making comments appear in the post page as well.
      For this, the codes in (step 4) are exactly the same except that you will have to replace "static_page" with "item".Now , you will have two sets of codes for threaded comments for static_page as well as item under class "post-outer".

      This should make the comments re-appear in threaded form. Let me know.

      Note: Make sure you don't change anything else. Always backup you template when working with codes.
