When I reply to an individual in a thread (my lazy way of trying to show who I’m replying to), it initially shows the person, but then it disappears when it’s posted. Am I correct in assuming that if I reply to somebody (non OP) and my post comes immediately after and it’s not shown as a reply to an individual that it means the post is a reply to the previous post. (I think I read that somewhere) Thanks.
I click on the Reply button in the lower left (edit: other left ) when I’m replying to a post. I then click on the little blue subject line just above which highlights the post. I might capture a part for a quote. Then that really shows what the post is replying to.
The blue Reply button on the general line I think just “replies” to the thread and not even the OP in particular. Although I guess it could be said that that is replying to the OP.
I think it is implied that without a reply link in the upper right of the post that the reply is replying to the post above.
But I’m probably just repeating the obvious.
Yes, that was discussed in the forum software update thread in this Forum Support category, darned if I can find the exact post though.
My solution when I want the post to show that I reply to is what I did here. Highlight the post and then hit the “Quote” prompt that comes up. The part you want to reply to (all or part) will show in your reply.
