How to reply

August 31, 2010 at 17:48:12
Specs: BeOS, yes
The "Post a reply" button doesn't work correctly in Firefox. It just starts a new topic ("Ask the Community"). I can't find any way to ask this question of a moderator, so I am left with the default option of cluttering up the forum, so here it is. Anyone know the secret hidden passageway to replying?

In my Firefox,
the Post a reply is at the lower right in blue and when pressed takes you to the Post Reply area, if your logged in.
the Start a discussion is at the lower left in orange and when pressed takes you to the Ask the Community section where you begin a new thread.

Yours is not the same??

Hi,

What mike outlined should be the way it works. I'm not sure how what you describe is happening.

What you might be noticing is that older posts are locked and cannot receive new replies. Those ones have a form to create a new message at the bottom of the page where a "Post Reply" form is on posts that are not locked.

I am using FF 3.6 and I can click on reply to xx or simply place cursor in the reply box as I have always done and it works.

The list of mods for each forum is listed at the bottom of each forum thread list.

"The list of mods for each forum is listed at the bottom of each forum thread list."


Hmmm...is it invisible? I don't see one at the bottom of the security page

Edit: Ok, it's at the bottom of the forum page in small bold letters, who is jpishgar? Never seen that user in any forums before.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

Yeah, who is "jpishgar".

Why is (s)he listed as a moderator of every forum? Well, at least every one that I've checked which was quite a few.

Someone VERY new.

How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Nah...read some of his posts. US based I'm guessing.

Joseph?

Greetings, Joe!

Since you're listed as a mod in every forum, will you actually be moderating - as in deleting/moving posts - or are you hands off in that regard?

XpUser4Real:

See, I told you he was US based. Florida, if I'm not mistaken. ;-)

D'oh, missed the reply there. I help oversee things on the community-side, but am mostly hands-off except in instances that require escalation. And yup, I'm in Florida as well. :)
