Reply/Delete Tutorial and My Blog Makeover

Olive Out has had a makeover this week.
Diane Cayton-Hakey from The Blue Ridge Gal blog made my new header which is so pretty and very me don't you think?
She blogs every day and has wonderful wit and her own view of the world that I like very much. 
Thanks bunches Diane.

I have added a  Subscription and Search features to the side bar should you like to use those.

I also researched how to add Threaded comments and added those.
That gets you the Reply and Delete after each comment which I wanted to have.

Go to the Dashboard then:
1. Click on  Settings then under Site Feed make sure it is set to Full. 
Be sure to Save that change.

2. While you are still in Settings go to Comments and choose Embedded and not full page and you will have the reply delete feature.
Be sure to hit Save after making making any changes on these pages.

Now you can reply to each comment if a question occurs or if want to carry on a conversation.
It is a very good feature to have.

may good blogging surround you
