If you use Blogger, which is after Word Press, the most used blogging platform, you might want to get to know Greasemonkey and Improbulus of a . They know the ins and outs of Blogger and today I’m bringing you their solution to editing comments, rather than just deleting them. I know–what a concept!
1. Before you begin, you’ll need to get greasemonkey from mozdev.org.
2. grease monkey is an extension for Firefox. If you’re not feeling lucky, Improbulus at Consuming Experience has a detailed article explaining how to install it.
3. Upload the greasemonkey script for editing comments.
4. Improbulus will show you how to use it.
It’s not nearly as complicated as it sounds, because Improbulus is clear and direct in giving detailed directions on how to do each part. So, if you’re a Blogger Blogger, give it a shot. You’ll be the only Blogger Blogger on the block who can fix your typos when you make a mistake in the comment box.
greasemonkey has a wealth of tools to help Blogger function with more up-to-date features, so once you get started, I think you’ll be sailing through the whole script catalogue. Other greasemonkey scripts include how to make a larger post editor, how to make a larger template editor, how to add a tag editor, how to keep current time, and how to blog by mobile phone among others.
