Use Disqus and Google+ Comment Systems Together in Blogger

As I discussed in the previous post about the benefits of adding Disqus commenting system in your blog. We also likes Google+ Commenting System also because of its advantages and lot of Google+ users. But we can install only one comment system in our blog so we have to choose one and it is really a difficult task. But now the using a little trick we can use both Disqus and Google+ Comment Systems together in our blogs. Disqus increases the visibility of our posts and comments because it is connected to major social media like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn and now we are adding one of the most social media to our comment system. It is just an blasting trick which is designed by David Kutcher and i just make some customization to make it work perfectly. So lets start the tutorial to add both comment systems in your blog.



How to Install :

  • First You'll need to install disqus in your blogger blog.
  • Then open your Blogger Dashboard  Template  Html editor
  • And search for: (As shown in below screenshot)
<b:includable id='comment_picker' var='post'>
.
.
</b:includable>


  • Select the whole piece of code as shown in screenshot and replace it with below given code.
<b:includable id='comment_picker' var='post'>
<b:if cond='data:post.forceIframeComments'>
<b:include data='post' name='iframe_comments'/>
<b:if cond='data:post.showThreadedComments'>
<b:include data='post' name='threaded_comments'/>
<b:else/>
<b:include data='post' name='comments'/>
</b:if>
<b:else/>
<b:if cond='data:post.commentSource == 1'>
<b:include data='post' name='iframe_comments'/>
<b:else/>
<b:if cond='data:post.showThreadedComments'>
<b:include data='post' name='threaded_comments'/>
<b:else/>
<b:include data='post' name='threaded_comments'/>
</b:if>
</b:if>
</b:if>
</b:includable>
  • Now again Search for:
<b:includable id='threaded_comments' var='post'>
.
.

</b:includable>

  • and replace it with the below code:

<b:includable id='threaded_comments' var='post'>
<div id='comment-header'>
  <img class='comment-on' id='comments-norm' src='http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-S3w45s75Yio/Uoe5OPXkFjI/AAAAAAAADcA/vmtzeVI2wFg/s50/disqus-social-icon-blue-transparent.png' title='view Blogger comments'/>
  <div class='choice'>Comment With Your Choice</div>
<image id='comments-gplus' src='http://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-wnTb7SHAGEE/UXVi6xoHXAI/AAAAAAAAILY/6vx5Em5w8MI/s50/plus_off.png' title='view Google+ comments'/>
</div>
<div id='comment-zone'>
  <div class='comments' id='comments'>
    <a name='comments'/>
    <h4><data:post.commentLabelFull/>:</h4>

    <div class='comments-content'>
      <b:if cond='data:post.embedCommentForm'>
        <b:include data='post' name='threaded_comment_js'/>
      </b:if>
      <div id='comment-holder'>
         <data:post.commentHtml/>
      </div>
    </div>

    <p class='comment-footer'>
      <b:if cond='data:post.allowNewComments'>
        <b:include data='post' name='threaded-comment-form'/>
      <b:else/>
        <data:post.noNewCommentsText/>
      </b:if>
    </p>

    <b:if cond='data:showCmtPopup'>
      <div id='comment-popup'>
        <iframe allowtransparency='true' frameborder='0' id='comment-actions' name='comment-actions' scrolling='no'>
        </iframe>
      </div>
    </b:if>

    <div id='backlinks-container'>
    <div expr:id='data:widget.instanceId + &quot;_backlinks-container&quot;'>
       <b:if cond='data:post.showBacklinks'>
