Did You Know?: Threaded Comments

July 30, 2012

Last time, we taught you how to display userpics next to your comments.  Another way to add some pizzaz is to enable Typepad Connect to display threaded comments.

Threaded comments allow you to reply to other comments within your comment section.  This allows for more interaction between you and your commenters and even between one commenter and the next.

To use threaded comments, you must first enable Typepad  Connect. If you haven't done this yet, go to Settings > Comments and click the "Yes, enable Typepad Connect comments" link.

If you already have Typepad Comments enabled, or have just completed this first step, look for the Display section and select the "Threaded" option.  We recommend that you set your comment level to three, but you'll need to choose two to see indented replies. Save your changes.  Your comments will now look like this, with replies underneath each other:

You can read more about Settings > Comments in the Knowledge Base.  We also have a section on Typepad Connect.

We hope you found this useful! Check back every other week for more "Did You Know?" tips to help make your blog even better!
