Go to the head/shoulders icon top right of the page

Use a Post to start a “conversation” on a topic, adding a keywords from the content to the tag list bottom right of the screen so people can jump to the topics of interest to them.

Comments added to an existing Page or Post haven’t the ability to be tagged with keywords for quick access from the menu

How to add a page

    1. Decide where it will go in the menu structure before adding the title
    2. Change the parent menu item in the box in rhs from none to it’s parent
      If you don’t do this before naming the page the link to the page misses a level
    3. Add a short title suitable for a menu
    4. Add the content
    5. If a long page, provide a table of contents at the top linking to the headers by using anchors (find a link that explains this!)
    6. Add appropriate categories and tags in the boxes on the rhs so others can find the content.
      Category, the overall description of the type of content
      Tag, keywords within the content.
      The latter show up in the Tag list below the rhs sidebar for quick reference
