    Thanks so much for including eGrace! Very inspiring collection for a part of the blog many don’t pay enough attention to in the design process.

  • Chad Engle, December 15, 2009

  • Eko Setiawan, December 15, 2009

    Sometimes the comments are not too much attention in design, but with the beautiful design comment will be adding value to our site, thank you for this great inspiration

  • Sasha, December 15, 2009

    Hi just wanna add that Ego-Box also has pretty comments box, here’s the example http://ego-box.com/updates/newish-animal-prints/#comments

  • Michael, December 15, 2009

    Comments section is crucial – can make or break a page. I have been looking for a comments page for my new site with Joomla – haven’t found too much out there I love!

  • BLOGERCISE, December 15, 2009

    Some of those are great. Others are pretty ordinary though?

  • Tommy Day, December 15, 2009

    Man, I could have used this a couple days ago! I hate styling comments, and I just redesigned a blog I run and I’m not happy with the comment design.

    These are great examples!

  • Victor G., December 16, 2009

    Nice, what a thorough reference list…definitely bookmarking. Some things I’ve noticed on blogs that should be standard are:
    1) Threading
    2) Moderator/Author’s responses should stick out more
    3) Gravatars should become more common
    4) I think communities should get more involved with voting for larger blogs. It helps weed out spam, and sometimes the funniest or most insightful ones hit the top

  • Office Chairs Pune, December 16, 2009

    Design is really matters ..good comment with great design is worth watching and following that blog becomes visitors hobby …that blog gets succcesss

  • chris rhee, December 16, 2009

    realy Beautiful Blog Design

  • Tessa, December 21, 2009

    Great list, I think comment styling is overlooked way too often! the tuts+ network also has beautiful comment styling. I really appreciate nicely styled threaded comments, when wordpress first supported them, it was a styling nightmare!

  • seo, December 23, 2009

    I’m really very useful to follow a long time see this as a blog here Thank you for your valuable information.

  • Elle, January 6, 2010

    Great designs! Thanks for posting – What a great way to highlight blog posts!

  • Dallas Web Designer, January 11, 2010

    You know, the comments section is one of the most forgotten about sections of a blog when it comes to a design. However, it is also a very important section as far as building a community goes. Thanks for the reminder to focus on that section more, and thanks for the post of the great designs that you have found!

  • Custom Stickers, January 18, 2010

    Really Nice Comments Blogs design thanks for share these design.
    I like it.

  • eugen, February 18, 2010

    brilliant piece of advice, thanks man. It’s something that gets underestimated an awful lot on most sites…

  • Freelance Graphic Designer, March 11, 2010

    Nice ones the very 1st my favorite;)

    Regards

  • increase web traffic, April 12, 2010

    I think this is wonderful, a lot of design to share… really great

  • Pudsning, June 25, 2010

    Nice designs, a little above my skills for now.

  • indyastari, July 6, 2010

    the UX Booth, it seems like usual… hehe.. cmiiw

  • koency, July 15, 2010

    en…it’s not bad!

  • Kojeje, July 17, 2010

    Wahhh.. Nice designs…
    Those are great I think if applied to my blog :)

  • FreeSoft, August 18, 2010

    Making comments certainly an important point, all perfectly described and selected in this article, but there is one but: recently a lot of spam, and these comments and would like to ban!

  • Houston WebDesign, August 25, 2010

    Awesome. Some of the them are really really good. Thanks for sharing it. Loved it.

  • Martin, September 15, 2010

    Have think many can do this change with ease and maybe WP should make it possible to upload a gravatar in the backend without adding!!

  • Web Designer Phoenix, September 17, 2010

    A lot of possibilities can happen with a comment box. That’s for sure. Great compilation. Thanks for sharing this info.

  • Kevin, October 9, 2010

    Best comment design I’ve seen in a long time: http://www.davedays.com/blog/tag-your-green/

  • starcraft, November 18, 2010

    I like this one: Tutorial9. White background and clean color is good for reading.

  • Theo van der Zee, December 23, 2010

    Seeing all those designs I’m wondering if there isn’t too much emphasis on the layout rather than on the content of the comments.. The one by Hicks Design seems simple and clear to me, just enough style and not distracting from the actual content, nice.

  • Majalah, December 30, 2010

    I like UX Booth style. Simple and clean. But, Usually I just use default comment from my blogging platform.

  • bayan escortlar, January 5, 2011

    You know, the comments section is one of the most forgotten about sections of a blog when it comes to a design. However, it is also a very important section as far as building a community goes.

  • Mark henes, February 3, 2011

    ANida is probably my favorite because of the division between comments. Making it real easy to read.

  • Magie Gabriel, June 23, 2011

    Yea it seems that there are a lot of designs for a comment box, those are really nice.

    I like the second one the most it is more simple…

  • Mohammad Danish, June 23, 2011

    Hey there I am so grateful I found your weblog, I really found you by accident, while I was browsing on Google for something else, Anyhow I am here now and would just like to say many thanks for a marvelous post and a all round exciting blog (I also love the theme/design), I don?t have time to go through it all at the minute but I have saved it and also added your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read a great deal more, Please do keep up the great work.

  • Lampy sklep, August 2, 2011

    For me comment section need to be clear. 1 captcha , text field and fields for the name. The content is most important part – if someone wants to say something and know what want to say about the post – then this is 10/10 for me.

  • For me the problem is that when you see great design like this you always want to go back to your page and redo something :-) thanks for the designs.

  • Ed word, October 8, 2011

    ANidea style is perfect, thank you!!

  • Carlo C, February 27, 2012

  • kiran, July 27, 2012

    That’s a great collection, I lack inspiration when it comes to the comment section of a design.

  • Henry Wood, February 6, 2013

  • Alex, February 13, 2013
