I am unable to reply to a post by Don Williams. See the url below thanks. Changing datasources dynamically

I thought I was supposed to be able to reply directly to someone helping me out. There is no "Reply" link, only a "Comment on this question". I want to be able to give Don feedback from his post. Thanks

The reply option is a bit subtle and you might have missed it - it is named Comment on this answer:

Are you able to see it? If not, please share screenshots of what is displayed in your browser after logging in.

Hi Veselina, thanks for the reply. I was able to see the "comment on this answer" button. But under what conditions does the reply come up? thanks


Reply option is shown, when you have a comment and you wish to notify the person, who commented.

Let me recapitulate:

  • when you place a direct comment to a question - you have Comment on this question as a link.
  • when you wish to create an answer - you use the blue Answer button;
  • when you wish to respond directly to an answer - you use Comment on this answer as a link;
  • when you wish to comment on a comment - you have Reply as a link.

Do not worry, this is confusing for many members at first, but you will get used to it.


Ok that's have a good day!
