New options in the blog will help you to not only manage your blog much easier by auto confirming comments in your blog, but also engaging your visitors better with the new option to reply to a comment.
Here are the new changes in the blog:
Auto-confirm comments - Enabling auto-confirmation for blog comments is the in-system way of letting user comments on your blog articles have their comments posted without need of user approval. This saves time for the user at the cost of less monitoring. If you want to use this tool, in the editor go to pages. Scroll down to your Store and click the blue Edit button. In the window that opens, click the Settings tab. Under Comments system, make sure it is set to Internal Comments. Under Auto-confirm new comments, from the dropdown list select Yes.
Reply to a comment in the blog - Replying to your blog readers is a great way to encourage engagement and interaction with your community of readers. To do this, in the dashboard click the Blog button. In the screen that appears, click the page link under Page for the comment you want to respond to. In the screen that loads, scroll down to the comment and click the Reply link. A text box will appear where you can write in and leave your own reply to their comment!
Comment using Facebook or discus - Using the Facebook or Disqus blog comments system is a great way to allow and manage comments for your blog. To set this up, from the editor click on Pages. Scroll to the Blog page and click the blue Edit button. In the Blog window that appears, mouse over and click the Settings tab. Under Comments Systems Type, choose Facebook or Disqus.
RSS - We now provide an RSS link that users can insert into their RSS readers so they follow your blog easily at any time. If you want to use this tool, in the editor go to pages. Scroll down to your Store and click the blue Edit button. In the window that opens, click the Settings tab. Copy the RSS link and place it into your RSS reader.
