I had a few questions from friends on how to change the word "Comment" at the bottom of a post to something fun or custom to your blog.
Well, I figured it out last night...so here we go!
See at the bottom of this post, where it says 15 Wonderful people left a comment? I just changed that last night!
Normally it just says the number and the word Comments.
Here's how to change it...Go to your Dashboard.
Click the DESIGN button on the blog you want to change.
The Add and Arrange Page Elements page comes up.
See the Blog Posts Box in the middle (well, mine is in the middle, because that's where I have mine arranged) Anyway, go to your Blog Post Box and in the lower right corner, click the EDIT button.
A pop up window called Configure Blog Posts comes up.
You can enlarge that to full screen if you'd like. Go to the second section called Post Page Options.
The 4th line down should have a made up number representing the number of comments that will come in to that post and then a box that says "Comments". Click the cursor in that box and write what ever you'd like. You can delete the word comment first. The example of the number stays there, but I suggest you say the phrase in your head first, so it sounds ok before you type it. For example...the phrase has to make sense with the number before it. You can't type "Thanks for leaving a comment"...because it will actually say at the bottom of you post..."5 Thanks for leaving a comment". Say it with a number first. Does that make sense? It's so hard to describe directions in print. LOL You can see in the box in my picture that part of the phrase is missing...it's in there just not enough space in the box. My box actually says "wonderful people left a comment". Once you save it, and then find you don't like it, just go back in and do it again.
Just underneath that section is another part that you can fiddle with. This is the Arrange Items section. You can click and drag those elements at the bottom of the post to where ever you want...well, actually not any where, but you know what I mean. You can change where the date of a post goes or the title or the comment that you just changed etc...
However, here is the most IMPORTANT part of any blog changing...the SAVE button. You can do all the work and changing you want, but if you don't click that SAVE button when you are done, all your work was for nothing. So Click it!
I have other features coming up, so stay tuned. I was going to list different things on one post, but I think I'll do it like this...one topic at a time. If there are random things, I'll do one of the bullet posts where it will be a quick read.
See you tomorrow for Tool Time Tuesday...it's a Christmas theme!
