Commenting

One benefit of the new website is the ability for you to place comments on any of the posts or pages you see here. Commenting is quite simple to do. Let’s take an example, let’s say you wonder if “An Ocean Apart” came in on the book van on the 2nd. This is how you would ask this question using the commenting system.

  1. Click on the title of the post you want to comment on. This is the blue text above each entry on the site. For our example, we would be clicking on “Book Van Brings New Books.” If you are wanting to comment on a page, under the “On this site…” section to the left, simply click on it so you are viewing the page.
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page. This is where you create a new comment.
  3. Fill out the fields and create your comment. Name – you must put in some name. It doesn’t need to be your real name or even relate to you in anyway. Mail – is required, but will remain private. Website – not required, if you have a website that associates with you, you can place it here. If you do place one, you name will appear as a link that links to your website. Comment – can you guess? This is where you place your comment! “Hi, wondered if “An Ocean Apart” came in on the book van?” (Note to administrators and authors – if you are logged in, you will not see the above fields, but only the Comment section. If you wish to post under a different name, you must first logout)
  4. Click the button titled “Submit Comment.” This will publish your comment under the post or page you are viewing. When someone that knows the answer to your comment, they can comment and give you the answer.

Now you know how to comment on this website. We will generally not edit or delete your posts, but we do reserve the right to do so for any reason. That said, bear the following general rules in mind.

  • Respect others
