Google+ Comments not showing: How to Fix

Problems with Google+ Comments not showing or appearing on your Blogger blog? Here’s a fix as suggested by Google.

Recently, Google has rolled out a new feature on Blogger that allows you to bring Google+ Comments to Blogger.

Google Plus Comments
Google+ Comments widget
You can get started by visiting the Google+ tab of your Blogger Dashboard, and check “Use Google+ Comments.” Once activated, you can view your blog and Google+ comments in one widget.

In a post, Blogger said “older comments will continue to appear in the new widget.” However, most Blogger users encountered a common problem: Google+ Comments are not shown or do not appear on the new widget.

Fix it by adding the following code to your custom template:

<div class='cmt_iframe_holder'
expr:data-href='data:post.canonicalUrl'
expr:data-viewtype='data:post.viewType'/>

Google said that the experience is “not guaranteed” with “heavily customized templates.”
