Troubleshooting Blogger »Previous Blogger Comments Don’t Show

Read on if you installed IntenseDebate on your Blogger blog and your previous Blogger comments no longer show up…


When you install IntenseDebate you are replacing the Blogger comment section with IntenseDebate comments.  This means that the Blogger comment section will no longer show up.  When you install IntenseDebate you have the option to either add IntenseDebate to all posts or only new posts.  Adding IntenseDebate to all posts means that your previous Blogger comments will no longer show up, but IntenseDebate will show up on all of your blog posts.  Selecting the option to install on new posts only will maintain your previous Blogger comments, while adding IntenseDebate to all new posts.
