To start commenting on Abbey Court you need a valid email address.
If you want to be an author on Abbey Court’s blog page, you’ll need to register with WordPress.
It is quite straightforward. Just go to wordpress.com and sign up.
Authorship will normally be reserved for residents, tenants and flat owners of Abbey Court, and our neighbours in Sutherland Square.
WordPress will send you an e-mail to validate the
address. Unless you want your own page, click on
“Just a username, please” .
Once you’re registered, WordPress gives you a
profile, a ‘Dashboard’ and other options. You can
upload an avatar, a picture to represent you, if you
like. Otherwise WordPress will assign an avatar to you.
For security reasons, please do not link
your name with your flat number, or address
others by their names on the blog if they
have chosen a different username. If you
happen to know that Bunnykins is really
called Susie, and lives at flat 93, please
still call her Bunnykins in your posts and
Any comment you make will be held for approval. This is a
WordPress security feature.
If you want to write posts as well as make comments,
say so in your first comment, and your status will be
changed to author, so that you can publish your own posts,
and upload pictures etc should you want to.
Apologies in advance if this does not happen immediately.
WordPress support pages will help with any problems making posts.
