Image Comment Message
So Lets add an image to your Comment section

Step 1. Click 'Layout' > 'Edit html'for your blog. Tick the 'Expand widget templates' box



Step 2. Find the following code in your blogs html :

<data:postCommentMsg/>

Important - This code will be in your template more than once, you need to find the code wrapped in heading tags (Example - h2, h3, h4).So it will look similar to this :

<h4 id='comment-post-message'><data:postCommentMsg/></h4>

Step 3. Pick an image below and Replace the code you found above with the image code.

Samples - Here is a list of images you can use :

You can use your own image instead if you need help doing this let me know and i will help.

Once you have replaced <data:postCommentMsg/> with the image code save your template and the image has been added.

Now to add your message above the comment form.

This is very easy simply, Click 'Settings' >'Comments' for your blog as seen in the image below:

Your message has now been added.
