writing comments

Once you’ve clicked a link to leave a comment you will be taken to a page in which you can enter the text of a message in an editor box. Optionally you can scroll down this page to leave more information including your name and email address. Your email address will be visible to the site administrator but it will not be displayed on the public site. Click the ‘Review message before posting’ button to check that your post looks OK. If it does, click the ‘Final message: send to site’ button – or alternatively edit the message and preview once again. In order to avoid Spam, comments will not appear on site until they have been approved by the administrator.
