How to make a comment on the Photo.net blog...

Josh Root , Mar 02, 2009; 05:25 p.m.

It would have been nice if we could have fully integrated the photo.net blog into photo.net so that logged in users could have just left comments. But for a couple (fairly important) technological reasons, that couldn't happen. Such is life sometimes. You gotta' know when to hold them and know when to fold them, right?

And so, here are the instructions for leaving a comment on the photo.net blog:

  1. Go to the photo.net blog page http://blog.photo.net/.
  2. Click on either the title of the blog post or the "XX Comments" link at the bottom of the post.
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and enter in your name and email (website is optional). Your email will be kept private, the system just requires it for comment spam protection purposes.
  4. Click "Submit Comment"
  5. Your comment will appear after an administrator has had a chance to take a quick look at it and make sure it's not spam. Wordpress is a wonderful blogging platform. But one drawback is that it's popularity has made it a magnet for comment spam. So we have to set up a few barriers to block that.

Again, sorry for the "jumping through hoops" but that's the way the cookie crumbles (these folksy sayings doing anything for you?).

Any questions, please feel free to post on this thread.
