How Can You Comment on a Post? Tips Here!

February 21, 2011 | By Adrianne Fielding | Post a Comment

Technical difficulties, anyone?  We’ve heard from a number of you that the “register to comment” feature is a bit confusing.  We’ve passed the feedback on to our tech team, and we hope to have a more straightforward process soon. We sincerely appreciate your patience as we work it out.  To demonstrate our thanks, we’ll continue to offer a free PDF of our “Monitoring Grant Subrecipients” report in exchange for a comment on any blog post through the end of February.

It IS currently possible to post comments — here are a few hints:

  • Commenting on a post requires registration with WordPress (to keep out the spammers); if you’re already a Thompson subscriber, this is different from the log-in you use to access your online products and account
  • To get a WordPress account, scroll below any post and complete the “Please register below to comment” section.  You’ll get an email from WordPress asking you to validate the info, and then another email with your temporary password.
  • Once you’ve received the email confirmation from WordPress with your temporary password, whenever you’re on, you can log in with that info to leave a comment.  Simply scroll to the bottom of any post and click on “logged in” in the sentence “You must be logged in to post a comment.”  Once you’re logged in, navigate back to the post you’d like to comment on — if you get disoriented, go back to and make your way to the post.

Give it a whirl.  And again, thanks for your patience as we see what we might be able to do to simplify this process.  We’re eager to get your thoughts on the issues we’ve been posting about!
