Hi. I am new to the forum and trying to engage in threads. I dont seem to have the button to allow response to individual comments. Please let me know what I am doing wrong.

Cheers Mark

I just hit reply then write whatever I want to say. Sometimes the reply comes in order, sometimes someone elses reply comes before mine. If a thread has multiple peoples comments and I wish to address one point only. I just put "Mark re you comment - then continue with what I have to say." Or if several people have answered and I wish to particularly respond to one - I might say "Thanks Mark" and "XYZ yes was aware of that."

Hi Mark, are you talking about replying in threads (just use the Quick Reply box at the bottom of the thread) or private messaging (where your message only goes to the individual ?

Cheers
Brett

Hi Mark, best way to do it is to quote their message and then write your response underneath.

If you use the "Reply With Quote" button on their post, they will receive a notification of your response.
