¶ 1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 If you’re unfamiliar with the Commentpress interface, the following should help you navigate your way around a Commentpress document. (Please note: screenshots will be updated to reflect the amended design of Version 3.2, but the icons and general placement have not changed much, so we hope these are still helpful)
¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 4 As with most WordPress sites, the document title is also a link to the document’s home page. The main text column and the comments column can be made to occupy proportionally different widths of the page by dragging the right–hand border of the text column. If you’d like less screen clutter, you can close the page header by clicking on the ‘up–and–down’ arrow icon at the far right of the navigation bar (click the icon again to reopen).
¶ 5 Leave a comment on paragraph 5 0 Each page will display its title here. If the page is contained within a chapter or section, this context will also be shown here. Navigate your way through pages in a linear way using the next and previous page buttons:
¶ 10 Leave a comment on paragraph 10 0 Commentpress presents two innovative ways of reading comments on the text. By clicking on the ‘double speech bubble’ icon in the navigation bar, you can read comments–by–page; in the list of pages, ordered by number of comments. By clicking on the people icon in the navigation bar, you can read comments–by–author, with the same functionality as for comments–by–page.
¶ 12 Leave a comment on paragraph 12 0 Perhaps your comment does not really apply to a particular page or paragraph? The General Comments page is there so that you can leave comments which are global in scope or reference.
¶ 18 Leave a comment on paragraph 18 0 The Commentpress document’s blog is accessed by clicking the ‘thumbtack’ button shown above. In general, Commentpress documents are likely to be completed works — the blog allows the author a continuing voice without disturbing the layout of the document itself. Where the document is still in progress, the blog allows content to be published that does not sit comfortably within the document itself — announcements, for example.
¶ 22 Leave a comment on paragraph 22 0 If you’re concentrating on reading comments on paragraphs, this is more easily done by clicking the headers in the “Comments” column; each section will then open at the first comment. If you’re reading comments on an iPad, use two–finger scrolling in this column. Commentpress features live posting and updating of comments, so you don’t have to refresh the page to see what’s being said by others.
