Create Add your comment link.

At the bottom of each post there is a COMMENTS link which viewers have to click if they want to comment on your post. However for first time viewers this is not very intuitive so I thought of a way to change it to 'MAKE A COMMENT'.......

To do this go to Template----->Edit Html and first backup your template.


Then put a check in Expand Widgets Template check box and scroll down in Edit Template text box till you come to the Blog Posts widget. Here locate this piece of code

<span class='post-comment-link'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
<b:if cond='data: post.allowComments'>
<a class='comment-link' expr:href='data: post.addCommentUrl' exprnclick='data: post.addCommentOnclick'><b:if cond='data: post.numComments == 1'>1 <data: top.commentLabel/><b:else/><data: post.numComments/> <data:top.commentLabelPlural/></b:if></a>
</b:if>
</b:if>
</span>

and change it to :


<span class='post-comment-link'>
<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType != "item"'>
<b:if cond='data:post.allowComments'>
<a class='comment-link' expr:href='data:post.addCommentUrl' exprnclick='data:post.addCommentOnclick'><b:if cond='data:post.numComments == 1'>1 <data:top.commentLabel/><b:else/><data:post.numComments/> COMMENT ON THIS POST</b:if></a>
</b:if>
</b:if>
</span>
