This whole new Movable Type 4 kinckers drawer (ahem… back end) that I’m using to manage this site these days has introduced a whole new business end as far as comments are concerned… Here’s a little tutorial in case you’ve been a bit stuck on how to do it!!
You can use the ‘sign in’ option. For the first time you’ll have to select the ‘sign up’ option and put in all your details and basically sign in to be a member on this site. I’ll approve you as a commenter and next time you come back it should remember you and you won’t need to put details in in future!
If you don’t wish to sign up to this site then you can sign in anonymously, by which you do your usual name, email, and site info, click remember me and comment as you’ve always done…
The other business of OpenID and so on is a bit of a mystery to me… I’ll figure that out in due course and let you know how it works…
Oh, and if when you’ve signed in to comments and you’re good to go and you want your own little photo/avatar to show up next to your comments you need to go to http://en.gravatar.com/ with your pic in your hand and sign up for your globally recognized avatar… THEN… whenever you sign in with the email address you used to sign up to gravatar it will appear in the comments here (or any other gravatar enabled site)… (oh, and if you have a gravatar that isn’t showing up you might want to check which email address you’re using to sign in here…).
So, there you go… Singular Scene Commenting 101! Now that you know how… why not show me some comment love!!!
Thank you! I know this was solely for MY technologically unsound benefit.
I shall follow the steps, carefully.
P.S. I obeyed! Redsaid has been updated!
Nice post Red… I especially like the ménage with Tim and Pylorns idea… I’m clearly getting more action on your blog than in real life… throw Roomate Kate into the mix and we’re blowing off the roof!!! Oooh Salacious…
Testing testing one two three
So you’re saying you like the new MT and its comments? I switched to wordpress.. on well, just thought i’d pop in and say hi, since we’re in this french connection . insert evil laugh.
I do, I’ve used the online version of WordPress and had no beef with it… sticking with MT has been a bit of a case of the devil I know… but this one seems a lot less well, devilish than previous incarnations…
