How to remove icon beside comment author on blogger comments?

blogger remove comment icon

This trick will make your blogger blog commenting system looks less like a typical blogger blog.

Dashboard > Layout > Edit HTML > check Expand Widget Templates box

Then find this code line:

<dt expr:class='&quot;comment-author &quot; + data:comment.authorClass' expr:id='data:comment.anchorName'>

Then remove this part from the line:

+ data:comment.authorClass

Remember not to remove the ' at the end.

So after removing the code will look like this:

<dt expr:class='&quot;comment-author &quot;' expr:id='data:comment.anchorName'>

Actually you can just copy and replace the original line.

How to change commenting system on Blogger?

Here's how. All you need is just to install or implement an external commenting system. After installing, commenters will be required to enter their name, email and optional website when commenting, just like default Wordpress commenting style.

Reason to change? It's more interactive and you can well manage all your comments on a particular website. External commenting system provides more feature - with custom top commenters widget, popular posts widget and recent comments widget.

Furthermore, you are able to reply on a particular comment and your reply will appear right under the replied comment - one feature that Blogger has yet to implement - which is very important to blogs these days.

Here are some recommended external commenting system - preferably try it out on a test blog before implementing on your intended blog.
