Checkpoint 1.4 - Blogs

Create a basic form for readers to post comments to the blog entry, where required

WCAG 1.0 Priority 2

WCAG Guideline 13. Provide clear navigation mechanisms.

Blogs are a communication mechanism between the web site author/owner and the target audience.

One mechanism to support this communication is to allow user comments which are posted on the blog. This can be done using a comments form at the end of the blog. The form does not need to be complex in order to get some response from the audience.


Where user comment via a form is required, ensure that a basic form is available on the blog.


Basic formatting options for the form may be provided to the user making comments to allow for bolding, emphasizing, etc.

Checking Tool

View the blog in a browser to see the appearance of any available form.
