Comment on a Post

Once logged on, browse to the comment (which can be located at Home if it is a relatively recent comment, or can be found via the drop-down menu “Previous Posts” if it is an older post) and click on the comment link. All comments take a short time to appear, as they must be approved by the web moderator (to eliminate spam, not to edit your entry).

This will take you to the WordPress Dashboard, a location with all sorts of interesting information. On the left side you will find a link for Posts, and can author your comments via the link there.
