5- Place your guidelines right after the above code but make sure you follow some tips given later in this tutorial.
Some Useful Tips!
1- Use polite and kind words in these guidelines.
2- If you've enabled comment moderation (?) then you must mention to users that their comments won't appear immediately.
3- You can also place a warning message to spammers.
4- If you're using more than one line than you must add <br/> tag after every line. This tag will insert a line-break, for example if you've added some lines like:
1- This is the first line.
2- This is the second line.
3- This is the third line.
When you'll view your blog, you'll see this result:
<h4 id='comment-post-message'><data:postCommentMsg/></h4>Posting Guidelines:1- This is the first line.2- This is the second line.3- This is the third line.
So, for correct placement you must add <br/> tags like this:
1- This is the first line.<br/>
2- This is the second line.<br/>
3- This is the third line.<br/>
