Posting a comment

If a blog is set up to accept comments, you can respond to a blog entry with your own comments.

About this task

Use a comment, rather than a new entry, when you want to respond to content in a particular blog entry. For example, you might add more information to a discussion or ask a question.

Procedure

  1. Click the entry that you want to respond to.
  2. If the blog is set up to accept comments, click Add a Comment.
  3. Enter your comment in the text box.
  4. Optional: Select Add this as a new entry/idea in my blog if you want to add this comment as an entry to your blog. If you have more than one blog, choose one from the list.
  5. Click Submit to publish the comment to the blog. Multiple comments for an entry are displayed in the reverse order in which they were created.
  6. Optional: In the comment action list, select More Actions > Notify Other People, then choose the people that you want to notify about the comment.

Results

Note: If the blog's comments are moderated, the comment does not display immediately. Someone must approve the comment before it is displayed. Otherwise, the comment displays after the entry.

What to do next

After you post a comment, you can edit or delete it. You can edit or delete comments that you own or comments for a blog that you own.
