how to 'insert' a reply

What am I doing wrong? I want to put a "re:" post to be 'inserted' into the middle of a post, but everytime it goes to the bottom. There must be something I'm missing.

  1. If you're using the 'Post a Reply' box at the bottom of the page, it'll add the reply to the end of the thread. If you want to reply to a specific reply within the thread, you need to hit the 'reply' button on that post -- it's in the line with the author's name, all the way to the right. That should open up a new 'reply' field that you can use to respond.

      ok-I was able to insert here. Generally when I have tried to insert, the screen scrolls to the bottom and prompts me to type.

    2. I just replied as you indicated. This did not work for me. I am using Firefox, is that the prob!?

        Firefox is generally the browser that works best with the site, though if you're using a very old version (anything before about 1.5) you might wish to upgrade it to something more recent. Can you describe the problem you're seeing in more detail?

        Do you press the reply link and then not get a reply field? Or get the reply field but are unable to submit?

          Ok, so I tried to use the reply here, and it worked. See above.
