how to post a comment

The blogging staff of BBB has tried to make the transition to this new location and the WordPress system as seamless as possible. If you do not already have a WordPress account, some of you may get an error message the first time you try to put a comment on a blog post here. I have been experimenting and I found two ways for you to be able to post your first comment:

  1. If you get a white screen with a WordPress error saying that your username and password is not recognized, please click on the link at the bottom of that page to open a WordPress account. I’ve just done that with a different email address and the process is actually quite simple. It should only take a couple of minutes. If you do not want a WordPress blog, when you get to that point in the process, you can check that you do not.
  2. If you click on a Comment link and are presented with blank boxes into which you need to insert your name, website (if you have one), etc., just go ahead and do that.

At this point, I do not know the WordPress system myself well enough to know when you will get option (1) or (2). If you do get option (1), allow a few minutes to receive confirmation messages from WordPress. Follow the instructions in them, including clicking on a confirmation link.

Using either option (1) or (2), once you are recognized by the WordPress system, you should be able to post comments after your first one just as you have on our previous Blogger system.

We don’t want to lose any of you in this process. So, if you try to follow these instructions, but are still unable to post a comment, please email me privately and ask for further help. My email address is: wayne dot leman at gmail dot com.

One of the other bloggers here who knows the WordPress system better than I do can chime in and give further help if there is anything I have left out or if I have made things more complicated than they need to be.
