News items - Add a New Comment - HOW TO?

Does anybody have an idea how to post a comment on a news article? Mine always has a text box with a "Please Wait . . . " in it.

To see what I mean, go to PCA home page, click any news article and underneath the article there's a comments section.

I see a few comments have been added to various articles but I am unable to do so.

There is a "Login" button (link) which opens a Login or Register box with various options - so do we have to log in to post a comment now? It always used to be there and anonymous (if that was what you wanted) but now we have to use our Facebook or Google id - is this right?

OK, I logged into this Disqus thing via my gmail account and guess what? No apparent difference. I've still got the Please Wait . . . in the comments box. And it now says Logout (of Disqus) so I'm logged in.

I'll get me coat . . .

When I tried, (already logged in to pca forum) and clicked on 'Post As...' I got a pop up box 'Who are you?' with my details already filled in - my email address and name it showed my real name and not my forum user name.

Perhaps these are editable but I didn't post a comment just in case (I chickened out)

I tried several articles but couldn't find any with any comments already on?

gengiscant, can't see a comment from you on that page you link to. Just one comment from another forum member that's not you.

Covergirl, I just clicked inside the comment box. I didn't click on the 'Disqus' button

I still don't know if you have to be logged in or if you can comment anonymously (not logged in)

gengiscant, your comment doesn't show for me. Just one comment from Jwarn on that page.

Well, the comments box becomes active now I'm at home on IE9 - it must be incompatible with IE7, my favourite lunchtime browser.
