Overview

At the top level of a blog, the blog posts are listed in reverse chronological order and a Comments link is displayed below each post along with the number of comments.

When you click a Comments link for a post, you can see all of the comments that have already been added to that post and you can add a new comment. The name of the person who made the comment, and the date and time of the comment are listed underneath each comment. You can view comments for each post, view all comments for all of the posts in a blog, or view just the comments that you have made.

If you are reading a specific post, you can see its comments and the box where you can add more comments.

Depending on how the blog is set up, you can edit comments after you have made them.

To add or edit comments, you must have permissions to contribute to the Comments list. To view comments, you must have permissions to read items in the list.
