    I subscribe to several blogs that make it convent for their subscribers to provide comments by pitting having a dialog box for writing and submitting comments in the rss feed itself. Is there a way I can provide the subscribers to my WordPress blog with the same convince?

    Could you give us an example of one of these blogs that have such a feed?

    Yes

    Many of the feeds for Scientific American have a dialog box that allows subscribers to post comment through the feed. The following is the url to one

    It doesn't seem to be a WP blog.

    EDIT. and adding their feed to my google reader I don't see any comment possibility.

    Correct it is not a WP blog but I was wondering if it would be possible for someone to find a way of allowing the subscribers to a WP blog to submit comments in directly to an rss feed. I use the Omea Jetbrains news reader and have noticed that some of the rss feeds have a dialog box that allows for that.

    Just thought I’d ask.

    Are you referring to this (found on their site)

    With Omea Pro you can respond in several ways, all without switching programs:

    * Reply to or forward email messages
    * Send copies of resources to other people
    * Create or respond to newsgroup articles, optionally uploading attachments
    * Post comments to your own weblog (requires third-party weblog posting extension plugins).

    It says: your own blog.

    Thank you

    Do you know if there is a plug in that will allow any subscriber to a WP blog to post comments directly from an rss feed because I think it would be an ability that would greatly increase the popularity of WP.

    Let me clarify

    On the bottom of the rss feed to my blog there is a link called comments which reloads that WP blog in my browser. You then have to scroll down that page to the bottom to find the text box to enter a comment.

    What I am asking is there a way to replace that comments link on the rss feed with a text box so that some can place a comment directly in the rss feed. I think if people would be more likely to enter a comment if they saw a text box instead of a link to another page.

    jeffocal: Yes, yes, we get it, we understand what you're asking, stop repeating yourself over and over.

    What we want is an EXAMPLE. I cannot see what you're seeing. I put the Scientific American feed into Google Reader and don't see any sort of comment box. Your link above does not go to a feed either.

    I like the idea of readers being able to directly comment too. But I don't know how to do it. I could figure out how to do it if I saw an example.

    So, give me a FEED that does what you're talking about. Then I'll look at it and see about possibly duplicating the functionality.
