Handling Comments - HTML

Most blogs also include a comment section that appears directly after the posted content. Visitors to the blog are encouraged to post comments about the articles posted there, creating the hybrid news article-public forum scheme that is a blog.

Most blogging applications support comments and allow you to configure how the comments are presented in your blog. One of the choices you will need to make is how comments are represented on your page—whether they are displayed whenever the attached article is displayed, or only available when a comment link is clicked.

Although most visitors understand the purpose of comments in a blog, there are still people who abuse the comments, using them to attack others, post inappropriate content, and so forth.

Thankfully, most blogging software has tools to help stop comment spam and control user posts. Check the documentation for your blogging software to determine what tools are at your disposal for displaying and managing comments.

Note Keep in mind that expressing one’s views is part of the appeal of blogs. As such, you should be prepared for negativity and even direct criticism if you enable comments. You should resist the urge to delete comments you simply disagree with—but stay on top of content that is truly objectionable to help protect yourself and readers. Alternatively, you can disable comments altogether.
