Hello, Administrator!

I've sent three emails so far, but no response; Here's the text of one:
"How do I reply to a posted reply? It's not obvious to me, and I've scoured the page of the post without any success?"

Why, when I bring up a thread, is there only the first page shown? Most sites post the continuation of the thread, as many replies to the original post as there are. I'd think that this site would be the same. I can't get beyond the first one. The rest are hidden.

What's up?

I've also scoured the website looking for a help page, maybe a how-to guide, but I've been left swinging in the breeze.

Getting more frustrated by the day.

Help? Or not?

Thanks

You posted this, so I will assume you have a Post Reply button.

To the lower right of the post box you should have a button for Edit and Quote.

Clicking the Quote button will open up a new window with the post you want to reply to quoted within.

Appreciate the response! In fact there is no post reply button that shows up on the screen - with the exception of posting a brand new thread. That's the problem. I can't reply to any other posts on a given thread.

Thought about unsubscribing from threads to see if that unlocks the magic "reply" button that's not on my screen, but haven't tried it.

But I did try using the quote button as you suggested, which allowed me this reply. That's a great start!

Do I inadvertently have something turned off that should be turned on?

And how do I view a complete thread - not just the first post of a thread?

Thanks!

You mean you can't see the 'New Reply' button at the top left and bottom left of every thread?

You should see a new button attached to the bottom left of the field for the most recent reply in each thread.

Exactly! It doesn't exist on my screen at all.

Posting rules, and style chooser in the lower left. That's it!

You have posted to this thread and others, so you have the ability to do that.

You quoted me, which means you have the buttons to do that too.

I'm thinking there is a terminology issue rather than a technology issue at play here.

Your answer that enlightened me about the quote button, has I guess, resolved the issue. Thank you much for that!

In the meantime, the magic "reply button" remains MIA. I guess I'll just go on re-quoting the last post, as it at least gives me the opportunity to be interactive with the inmates!

Thanks again -

So your not seeing the Reply buttons at the top left...


or the bottom left of every thread?


They're there in every skin.

Go to the bottom of the page and try one of the other skins.

Look for this:
