Pete, is the person that runs the blog supposed to get an email when a comment is made or not?

Just checking...

Peter,

Last night you said when a person adds a diary entre that (if he/she choose the option) an email would go out and notify the people in the person's contact list. How does it work with a new blog entre?

Not at the moment.. we need to make some way of checking this. Although of course you can see all the latest comments quite easily through your blog control panel.

Click on the 'Subscribe' link when you're looking at a blog and all will be explained. It's far more sophisticated than the diary way of doing things (and anyone can subscribe - member or not)

Thanks Peter,

I checked it out and see how one can subcribe and get an email when a new blog is posted.

But, I'm curious if ANYONE could simply leave a comment. When I left a comment on yours, it already knew who I was and my username. But suppose I was traveling, gave the site to a relative, and told them to check it out to see what I was doing. Could they leave a comment after looking at my blog?

Or would the logical course of action be to tell them to check out my blog page and subscribe to my blog? (Most of my family are tech-challenged so I'd need to tell them exactly what to do ).

Sorry for all the questions but I figure you're probably excited enough about this new feature (creation) to entertain all questions.

After you select the template style you want you NEED to click "choose new style" button right below the place that you selected the new style.
It worked for me.

Kind of on the order of Travel100 question....for someone to leave a comment do they need to be a member of TP?

We deliberated on this and I just tested it... at the moment you have to be logged in as a Travellerspoint member to leave a comment. It will help keep down unwanted comments I think, but feel free to voice other opinions. By the way, if you aren't logged in and visit the comments page, it tells the user they have to login or sign up as a member and after logging in they are redirected back to the comments page automatically.

Re. styles. Both the person looking at the blog and the person that runs the blog can set the style. Obviously, the one set by the person that runs the blog is normally what someone would see but say you don't like it, you can choose to view the blog in a different format (anyone else still sees it like the author intended)

-reece- thankfully never.... I've actually heard a few web folk compare the two, but funnily enough never a female web developer ;)

I think that is a great way to do it, alot of other boards have the option of allowing ANYONE to post a comment, and it really becomes a spamming/flaming mess.

If you want to know what childbirth feels like just take your bottom lip and..............pull it over your head;)
