Feedburner Recent Comments Widget For Blogger

Just an hour ago I wrote a post on Google AuthorRank to inform you of the new content ranking system introduced by Google and now today we will learn to add a beautiful Recent Comments Widget Offered by Feedburner. This widget is really fast loading in a sense that it is well scripted without any blocking scripts in the way and the JavaScript it uses is stored on FeedBurner’s server so there will be no load time delay on your blog. You have seen this widget in my blog’s footer. So let’s learn how to add it to your blogs.

Part1: Feedburner Recent Comments Widget For Blogger

I have tried to keep the steps very simple for adding this widget:

Burn Your Comment Feed At Feedburner

  1. Login To Your Feedburner Account. 
  2. Insert your Comment Feed URL inside the Feedburner box. The URL for Blogger Blogs will be like this,

http://YOUR-BLOG.blogspot.com/feeds/comments/default

Replace YOUR-BLOG with your blog’s URL.

     3. Press the Next button and you will be brought to a new page. Simply insert an easily memorable Feed title and feed address. I prefer both to be the same.
     4. Press Next and then fill the two options on the new page as shown below, 
     5. Finally, press the Next button again and you have successfully burnt your comment feed!

  • Now click the publicize button just at the top
  • On the left sidebar click BuzzBoost
  • Hit the Activate button on the right pane
  • Then fill in the options as shown below, (Select Number of Items to display as much as you want)

It’s advisable to leave all boxes unchecked.

  • Finally, click the save button and get your HTML code which will be just at the top of the page as shown below,

 

  • Copy the code into notepad and remove the following line,
<noscript><p>Subscribe to RSS headline updates from: <a href="http://feeds.
feedburner.com/mbtcomments"></a><br/>Powered by FeedBurner</p> </noscript>

Now you will have only two lines i.e,

<script src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/mbtcomments?format=sigpro" type="text/
javascript" ></script>

 Now Add The Widget To Blogger

Now once you have copied the code for your recent comments widget then simply follow the steps below,

  • Log into Blogger
  • Go To Layout
  • Click Add a Gadget or Add a Page element
  • Choose HTML/JavaScript Widget
  • Now paste the Feedburner code inside this widget and hit save
  • Done!

Finally, Preview your template to see the beautiful widget. In the upcoming posts, I will teach you how to remove the logo from this recent comments widget. Till then enjoy this one. Blessing pals :>
