Setup OpenID Comments To Follow In Blogger.

Ever since Blogger changed it's comments system to prevent other bloggers from leaving their URL, discouraging the DOFOLLOW brigade, it was found impossible to share or pass on the Google Juice to encourage your commentators. Now that Blogger has rolled out the OpenID system it has become possible once more.........


Here are the steps to follow :

1. Register at https://www.myopenid.com/signup and get an OpenID in the format :

http://USER_NAME.myopenid.com




2. Login at Blogger.com and click on Layout link on Dashboard for your blog. Then click on Edit Html subtab of Template tab.




3. Copy the code below and paste it in the Template code box below <head> tag at the top of the template :

<link href='http://www.myopenid.com/server' rel='openid.server' />
<link href='http://USER_NAME.myopenid.com' rel='openid.delegate' />


Instead of USER_NAME put in the actual user name you registered at the OpenID site.
Save Template.

IMPORTANT : Do not use doublequotes or you may get an error message.




4. Test the comment by making a comment on a DOFOLLOW Blogger Blog. After making the comment choose the Identity "Sign in using any Open-ID". In the text field which opens below paste in your blog url. Then Publish the comment. I made a comment here. The first time you make a comment you will be required to set up your persona at the OpenID site.




5. Check by View---->Page Source. If you see the Page Source for the blog page (from the browser menu) you will see :

<dt class='comment-author' id='comment-8224629199091623054'>
<a name='comment-8224629199091623054'></a>

Thanks for the tutorial. I had pretty much written Blogger off when they stopped the dofollow movement. I like to comment on many Blogger blogs I read, but it's nice when that creates a link to my site; truth be told, I had slowed my comments because they weren't creating links.
