Pop Goes the Comment

Yesterday I was asked how make comments appear in a smaller, popup window, so today I'll cover that.  It won't make for a very long post but I'm always happy to answer questions, so keep em coming if anybody has anything else they want to know.

I think I may have covered this once already but I scanned through my recent posts and didn't see it.  Just log in, go to Settings > Comments and the third section on that page has a setting for pop-up window.  That should be all you need to change to do what was asked.  See this pic for reference:


To all my readers who already know this stuff, I'll try to get back to posting some more stuff that would be useful to everybody, in the near future.  I've been pretty busy lately and it hasn't left me much time to think of any really good stuff for the blog.  So maybe next time I'll have something more interesting.  But of course I still welcome any questions of any difficulty, and I'll try to answer as best I can.

Thanks to everybody following.

  1. Pop-up or embedded at the end of a post both work for me. I really REALLY hate the "full page" option. It leaves a ton of white space, leaves out the the post you're trying to respond to (which is important for most blogs) and it's just not efficient.

  2. Interesting stuff, I prefer the comment box at the bottom and not so much the pop out ones.

  3. yeah, i like it embedded. just seems more natural to me. but pop-up isn't bad. i also don't like the full page option. that seems more annoying to me.

  9. It annoys me when people have the pop out comment boxes tbh - there isn't really any benefit I can see - however - its not less beneficial than the embedded option I guess.

  17. I personally like the comments in the same window as the post, but it looks cleaner with a pop up

  18. I used to do the pop up thing, but noticed it was a tad bit annoying too. But to each his own I guess.

  24. @BucEmHard,
