Hello and Welcome to GetWebInfo.Com. Hre on this post you can know that How to Customize Blogger Comments Background Color and Border. The comments are an essential part of any blogs as in them readers express their opinions about a post or a blog, thus it is important to spend a little of or time to make this part looking more stylish, accessible and neat.



To put our comments in order, we should make each comment easy to identify, so that we'll know from where it begins and to where it ends, otherwise it becomes a jumble of letters and our visitors could run away. Here are some methods to make some order by separating each comment.


Add Separator/ Border to Blogger comments

Step 1. To add a simple separator go to Template> Edit HTML and click on the small arrow on the felt of <b:skin>...</b:skin>

Step 2. Click anywhere inside the code area and search using CTRL+F keys for the following piece of code:
]]></b:skin>
Step 3. Paste the following style just above it:

If we are using threaded comments (with the reply option):

.comment-block {
border-bottom: 1px solid #000000;
}
.comments .continue {
  border-top: 0px solid #000;
}
If we are using previous commenting system (with no reply option)

#comments-block .comment-footer {
border-bottom:1px solid #000000;
}

Note: To change the borders color, replace the bolded color value and to change its thickness, increase/ decrease the 1 value.

Step 4. Save your Template

Instead of a simple border, we can also add a divider/image between our comment.

How to Add a Divider (Image) Between Each Comment in Blogger


Step 1. Go to Template> Eidit HTML and search (CTRL+F) for the following piece of code:
]]></b:skin>
Step 2. Paste the following code just above it

If we are using threaded comment (with the reply option):
.comment-block {
background-image:url(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YaY5yi0UcbM/UTpA2jWBJFI/AAAAAAAAC_0/UXbviThYl2w/s1600/74.gif);
background-repeat:no-repeat;
background-position:center bottom;
padding-bottom:30px;
margin-top: -10px;
}
.comments .continue {
border-top: 0px solid #000;
}
If we are using previous commenting system (with no reply function)
#comments-block .comment-footer {
background-image:url(http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YaY5yi0UcbM/UTpA2jWBJFI/AAAAAAAAC_0/UXbviThYl2w/s1600/74.gif);
background-repeat:no-repeat;
background-position:center bottom;
height: 50px;
}
Note: The URL that is in bluce represents the image that you can change as you like, just remember that at the height must set the height of an image with 30px more, for instance, if the image's height is 50px then the value will be 80px. This is for making sure that the image won't overlap the date fo comments. (For threaded comments, increase/decrease the padding 30 value)

Step 3. Now you can save your blogger template.
