Login screen

Click login and you should be all set.

As a user, when approved, you will be able to comment on posts and create new posts.
Comments can be created right from the normal page below the post you are commenting on.

The user dashboard will let you set a few things, like change the color scheme or add personal information. That is all optional and you do not need to do any more.  You will find that 99% of the time you will browse the web site as normal and not need to log in. You will only need to do that to participate in commenting and will be prompted to log in when needed.

If you should need to create a new POST (not comment) you will need to log in and use the dashboard menu to create a post. Please pay attention to the categories available and if possible, select on that’s appropriate to help keep them organized.
