A trip will be created for your password. (A trip is a coded sequence for your password).

Private Comment:

This is a function that allows only the author of the entry to see your comment. Any comments set as private will not be displayed on blogs. Only the owner of the blog that the private comment was posted to can read it. However, content cannot be changed, edited or deleted once it has been sent.

-The title for each of the items for the form may be different depending on the template.
-If a comment is public, anyone accessing the blog can see the comment content, so please be careful when writing your email address.
-The comment section is the only required field. You can post a comment without filling in any other items.
- Cookies issued when comments were posted on other FC2 Blog entries may automatically fill in your name, etc.

*If you use a FC2 template, all of the items on the comment form will be uniform.

*If you are using a shared or customized template then parts of the comment form may have been intentionally left out.
(There are shared templates that has no comment function)
These are templates that have had the relevant form tags removed from their HTML and does not mean that something is wrong with the FC2 Blog system. If you need to, please change to a template that has the standard comment form.

Comment Font Effects

You cannot use HTML in the comment section. URLs in the post content will be automatically linked. You can turn automatic linking of URLs off or on through the control panel.

A unique syntax is used to apply font effects. You will not be able to preview this syntax though because the tags will be converted after the comment is posted. Your highlighted text will be surrounded with substitute tags after clicking on the button for the desired text effect. If your template does support font effect tags, you can still add your own code to the text to add effects.

For example bold:[b]TEXT[/b]
Substitute for brackets for your HTML orders is [ ] [/]

[b]Makes text bold [/b]
[i]Italicise text[/i]
[u]Underline text[/u]
[s]Strike through[/s]
[color:FF0000] Select number and change text color [/color]

You can also use emoticons in your comment.

Delete a Comment

You can delete a comment through the control panel as well as deal with spam comments or unwanted advertisements by going to the Home menu > manage Comments and then delete the unwanted comment by clicking on the X mark.
*If you are the poster of the comment you can edit or delete a comment if you have set a password.

Block specific comments

You want to accept comments, but you don't want to have to approve them? Well you can block annoying comments, spam, and other unwanted comments by specifying conditions to block them.

First method is blocking the IP. By adding the IP of the comment poster to the block list messages from that poster will not be sent.
However, it may not be entirely effective because the IP may not be fixed according to the poster.
That or they are accessing your blog by changing route and as such cannot be blocked.

Second method, set taboo words. By setting words such as "Adult" and "Unauthorised Advertisement" any comments with those blocked words will be blocked.
