Responding to posts

I have posted a question on the forum and when I reply to a responder my reply does not appear under the responders post? Any reason for this? My response appears at the most recent page of the thread. If anyone looks at the thread the question and answers responders make does not always make sense.

Use the quote button (right hand side of reply window)

Or simply write in reply to <name> and/or message number

No gg30340 has not removed his signature. It is in line with what the forum moderators and other use so I don't see a problem.

Glad my reply to Trooper helped you Nethelp22:)

 

Regarding the rest of your reply....

.....I doubt it.

.....you will find he changed it to include "helpful".

.....I've spent way too long wearing this tin foil hat, so I'll send it your way.

Re: Responding to posts

The simple solution is actually one-size-fits-all (which is rare)

This is how it would work
The following txt - to appear directly below "announcements/welcome/advice

"If you like a post, or want to say thanks for a helpful answer, please click on the Ratings star on the left-hand side of the post.
If someone answers your question correctly please let other members know by clicking on ’Mark as Accepted Solution’.

This would be an embedded script on every page

Then no-one has to add as a signature

solved 🙂

p.s if you think that's been useful please give me a rating point ... lol.. hahaha - good one eh!

Re: Responding to posts

That would do it!:)

 

And as I mentioned a few times on various threads, make a default 'in response to <name>' so there would be no real need to use the quote button.....

 

fwiw I'd of given your a star for that, but as this thread was moved (no names KB;)) it cancels out any already awarded stars and doesn't permit further ones (on this forum section)
