    Add a Cool Style to Blogger Threaded/Nested Comments




    If you need a fresh style to the threaded comments of a standard Blogger template, here's a simple CSS that will help you to apply a different background, make your avatars rounded, add a border with rounded corners and a triangle which is actually an HTML entity to get that speech bubble look on your comments.

    You can see a demo here.

    To have this style in your comments, all you need to do is to paste the below code inside the CSS part of the template, which is between <b:skin> and </b:skin>

    Styling Simple Nested Comments with CSS


    Step 1. From the Blogger Dashboard, go to Template and press the Edit HTML button


    Step 2. Click anywhere inside the code area and press the CTRL + F keys to open the search box:


    Step 3. Paste or type the following tag inside the search box and hit Enter to find it
    ]]></b:skin>
    Step 4. Just above ]]></b:skin> add this CSS:
    .comments .comment-block {
    background: #F9F9F9;
    color: #555;
    box-shadow: 0 4px 10px #EEEEEE;
    position: relative;
    margin-top: 10px;
    margin-left: 60px;
    padding: 10px;
    border: 4px solid #EEEEEE !important;
    border-radius:10px;
    font: 1.190em/1.2 Cambria,Georgia,sans-serif;
    }
    .comment-thread li .comment-block:before {
    position: absolute;
    display: block;
    left: -26px;
    color: #EEEEEE;
    content: "\25C4";
    font-size: 30px;
    }
    .comments .avatar-image-container {
    width: 60px;

    height: 60px;
    max-width: 60px;
    border:0 !important;
    border-radius:60px;
    }
    .comments .comment-thread.inline-thread {
    background: none;
    }
    .comments .continue {
    border-top: 0px solid transparent;

    .comments .comments-content .datetime a:hover{

    text-decoration: none;
    }
    .comments .comments-content .comment:first-child {
    padding-top: 0px;
    }
    .comments .comments-content .comment {
    margin-bottom: 0px;
    padding-bottom: 0px;
    }
    .comments .continue a {
    padding: 0px;
    }
    .comments .comments-content .icon.blog-author {
    background-image: none;
    }
