Before you can add an entry to a community's journal, you must first join the community to gain posting access. See http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=101 for information on joining a community.

Note, however, that some communities may be moderated. This means that any entries you make in the community journal will need to be approved by a moderator. You are only permitted to have one entry in the moderation queue at any given time.
********************

Some communities may allow posting without requiring that you first become a member and gain posting access. If this is the case, you will see a blue pencil icon on the small blue toolbar on the Community Info page (http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=communityname where "communityname" is the username of the community). Clicking on that pencil icon will take you to an update page where you can compose and post your entry to the community.

If you don't see a blue pencil, you will be required to join the community and gain posting access. See http://www.livejournal.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=101 for information on joining a community. You can then follow the instructions below to post.

In either case, you should note that some communities may be moderated. This means that any entries you make in the community journal will need to be approved by a moderator. You are only permitted to have one entry in the moderation queue at any given time.


What are the options regarding open and closed communities? needs updating, too, and probably a rename ("What are the various settings I can choose when creating a community?"? Something like that.) Not sure how to write it all, though.
