Your Favorite?

What is your favorite way to post a comment?  As I travel around the blogs, I think mine is the full page where, when you comment, the post still shows....or the pop-up where you can still see the post.  I'm debating on changing the way you do comments on my blog, and would love to have your opinion - so I'm taking a poll!

I like it where the post still shows - not sure if mine is like that - I'll have to go and check! LOL! I like seeing the post, because if I forget something I can back and review what I just read. It's the age/memory thing you know!

I like the way you have you it set up now. If I want to see the original post, I can click on the link.

I like it when the post still shows.

soggybottomflats said...

I think I liked the old way. I feel "trapped" in this little box. lol

jan said...

Sometimes I click on the link that shows the post, but mostly, I think I know what I am going to say before I click the comment link. But, change can be good!

I like it the way you have it set up, where the post shows. I don't know how you see mine. Guess I better go check. Like Laurie, it's an age/memory thing. LOL

I like it where the the window comes up. That way I can refresh my memory looking at the pictures and what the person wrote.
The way that you have it now, you can click on the "show original Post" but you can't see the pictures.
Just my opinion.

Jan said...

I like it the way you have it now--guess it's all in what you are used to! LOL!!

I do like it when you can see the original post. Like Laurie said, you can go back and reread something.

I like to be able to see the post. But what I really dislike is when you type a comment, click publish, there's a pause, so you think your post is going to publish and you almost quit out of that page and then a word verification pops up. If you require word verification, I like it to be right under the comment block like you have it now.

I don't care if it's in a separate window or not as long as the word verification thing is right below the comment box!

Hi Allie - I like it where the post shows because I always have to refer back to the post to remember what I was going to write (sad, but true)

West Michigan Quilter said...

This is interesting. When I view your blog from my dashboard the entire post comes up. When I go directly to your site I do not see the post. I fixed my blog so a window pops up and you can still see the post. I'm not sure what I'm doing but I guess that is how to fix it.

Michelle said...

I like it when you can see the post.

Kim said...

I like it where the little window pops out and I can still see all the page and still comment. That way I don't have to click to show the original post if I want to go back and look at the page. Are you having a good day Allie?

Debbie said...

(Oops, please delete my previous comment, LOL, was just testing.)

I like it just the way I have it on my blog, Allie. Like you have it here, on the same page as the post, no funny letters to punch in, but mine doesn't need to be approved. I think that the fewer hoops people have to jump through, the more likely they are to comment (and have the comment entered successfully.) In the more than a year that I've been blogging, I can only remember one comment that I had to delete. I get the comments by email and I'm here at the computer often enough to catch anything.

Tozz said...

I like it like this Allie and to be honest with you I have never really thought about it all. I think mine has a little box come up but I have no idea how to change it. But I do like yours like this as like one said I can scroll back to see what I am talking about :) Hugs Vicki

joanne lendaro said...

I've been thinking about this one...I don't mind being approved before showing the post, because I know the spammers have hit us, but I rally don't like typing in the letters and THEN being monitored..what's the purpose?? I need to check and make sure mine isn't that way...

Fleurette said...

As you have it now Allie,with the post showing

ivoryspring said...

Hi Allie,

Mine is where the comments window shows up as a separate window.

Thank you for visiting me back and leaving the kind comment. May I add you to my blogroll?

clare's craftroom said...

Yes I like the pop ups? too ! Have a great day Allie .

Valerie said...

I like the separate window.I put my little embroidery project on the bottom of my post. I haven't worked on it because I have had 4 little munchkins (grands) and I am pooped. My goal is to have it finished this week quickly.

Shasta said...

I like the pop up box, where you can scroll back and forth on the post without losing your place in your comment.

Martha said...

I like it best when you can see the entire post -- with the photos (just like it is now) -- but I'll comment on your blog however you decide to set it up.

ivoryspring said...

Hi Allie,

Just wrote you an email. I want to let you know in case you have your spam filter turned on. Have a lovely day.

Rebekah said...

I like it when the comment is on the page (when it doesn't take you to a separate comment blogger screen)

Mr Puffy's Knitting Blog: said...

Gosh, is there more than one way to do it? I never really noticed or paid any attention. Any differences I thought were the result of the hosting website, i.e. blogger versus typepad. I'll be interested in what you learn as a fellow blogspot user!

julie said...

Allie, Any way is fine with me. I'll drop in to say Hi! regardless. But yes, your way is the easier than opening a separate box.

joan said...

My prefernece is when you can see the post because I do have a short memory.

Victoria said...

I like the pop up window version. As a blog host I think the comments seem easier for me to read and monitor, and as a blog visitor I think it is easier to refer back to and view the separate page, as opposed to scrolling back up past all the comments, (especially if there are a lot) such as when the comment section is embedded below the post. My least favorite is the full page where you can click to see the post, but can't see the images.

I have a devil night tonight.
No one really wants Soggibottom to comment...

Allie,

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on the cuteness of the safari fabrics... :)

I am running behind on deadlines, so will respond to your email later!

Have a blessed night.

Kelly@ Charming Chatter said...

Oh goodness - I'm so bad with computers, I didn't know what you were talking about LOL! But, I do like the way this works for comments on your blog! And, I'm still drooling over that Shabby Roses quilt!!!

Stina said...

I sure want the comments to show.. either as a pop up or like how you have it.. but I dont know why...but these embedded comment boxes always mess up and makes me have to process twice to get the comment done.. irritating!!! :o) Dont know why!!
