Blogger embedded comment thread disappearance have been seen in many customs and even defaults blogger templates. Basically, there are two different reasons which are responsible for this issue. The first one is improper to comment thread code which is located inside your blogger template and the second one is your web browser from which you are currently trying to access the comment thread on your blog. I will discuss both the issues that prevent you from getting the comment thread back. But before you follow the steps, in case you do something wrong. it is highly recommended  to backup your blogger template to restore it later.

How to Enable Blogger Comment Thread System

This is the ultimate source by which you can get your comment box back on the track. So let's do it now.
  • Login to your blogger Dashboard > Template > Edit HTML
  • Click inside the template editor and press Ctrl + F to search for the following code
<b:includable id='threaded-comment-form' var='post'>...</b:includable>
  • You will find the many similar lines of codes but you must locate the same code as I mentioned it above
  • Click on the three dots to expand this code
When you click these three dots the code will look like this:
<b:includable id='threaded-comment-form' var='post'>
  <div class='comment-form'>
<div id='form-wrapper'>
    <b:if cond='data:mobile'>
      <p><data:blogCommentMessage/></p>
      <data:blogTeamBlogMessage/>
        <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;static_page&quot;'>
        <a expr:href='&quot;http://www.blogger.com/comment-iframe.g?blogID=&quot; + data:blog.blogId + &quot;&amp;amp;pageID=&quot; + data:post.id' id='comment-editor-src' title='comment editor'/>
      <iframe class='blogger-iframe-colorize blogger-comment-from-post' height='410' id='comment-editor' name='comment-editor'/>
        </b:if>
        <b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
    <data:post.friendConnectJs/>
    <data:post.cmtfpIframe/>
    <script type='text/javascript'>
      BLOG_CMT_createIframe(&#39;<data:post.appRpcRelayPath/>&#39;, &#39;<data:post.communityId/>&#39;);
    </script>
  </div>
</b:includable>
  • Replace the whole code with the following piece of codes
<b:includable id='threaded-comment-form' var='post'>
  <div class='comment-form'>
    <a name='comment-form'/>
    <b:if cond='data:mobile'>
      <p><data:blogCommentMessage/></p>
      <data:blogTeamBlogMessage/>
      <a expr:href='data:post.commentFormIframeSrc' id='comment-editor-src'/>
      <iframe allowtransparency='true' class='blogger-iframe-colorize blogger-comment-from-post' frameborder='0' height='410' id='comment-editor' name='comment-editor' src='' style='display: none' width='100%'/>
    <b:else/>
      <p><data:blogCommentMessage/></p>
      <data:blogTeamBlogMessage/>
      <a expr:href='data:post.commentFormIframeSrc' id='comment-editor-src'/>
      <iframe allowtransparency='true' class='blogger-iframe-colorize blogger-comment-from-post' frameborder='0' height='410' id='comment-editor' name='comment-editor' src='' width='100%'/>
    </b:if>
    <data:post.friendConnectJs/>
    <data:post.cmtfpIframe/>
    <script type='text/javascript'>
      BLOG_CMT_createIframe(&#39;<data:post.appRpcRelayPath/>&#39;, &#39;<data:post.communityId/>&#39;);
    </script>
  </div>
</b:includable>
