One-click Comment Notification

[UPDATE: For the Blogger Beta version of this hack, please read this post.]
One-click notification is a service presented by Hackosphere for Blogger-based blogs. It can be used to keep your blog’s comments section lively. When somebody posts a comment in your blog and you respond to his question/comment, the commenter may not even see your response (unless he constantly monitors your blog). If (s)he landed in your blog through blog search or Blogger's next blog chain, he may not even remember your blog's URL. Sometimes, you type a long response and it goes into blackhole. With One-click notification, you can send an automated email message to the commenter with just one click. This message will contain your name, your post’s title and its permanent link so that the commenter can easily come back and see your response. Please note that notification can be sent only to those who have shared their email address in their Blogger profile.



Steps to change your Blogger template can be found here.

After you make those changes, save your changes and republish entire blog. Now, goto any post page with comments and you will see the one-click notification button after every comment. If you want to notify a particular commenter about your response, click the button below his comment and an email will be sent. If the commenter has not shared his email in his profile, an error will be shown and no email will be sent.

NOTE:
The button will be shown ONLY when you are logged into Blogger. Visitors to your blog will not be able to see this button. This is a security feature.

If you like this feature or have some comments/suggestions, please leave a comment here.
