New comment “Reply” button

I’m not sure if anyone has noticed this or not so I wanted to explain it to you in case you didn’t.  I stole this idea from Just A Mom at Life Is Funny Wearing Purple Colored Glasses and it’s the neatest feature on WordPress yet.  I LOVE IT.  I’m not one to go looking around at things and if I were, I wouldn’t have known what to do so thanks Just A Mom.

If you want to Reply to someone else’s comment, there is a Reply tab right above their picture or icon. Just hit that and your comment will go right under theirs.  This is a really nice feature I think.  There have been so many times I’ve read through the comments and by the time I get to the bottom, I’ve forgotten something I’d wanted to say or I’ve come late in a conversation and just not bothered to comment so I really think this feature is handy as all get out.

      Starlachat, I’ve been to numerous motivational seminars. It is said that in order to get everything out of a particular (motivational) series you must listen to it a minimum of six times.

      I’m like you. Most often I have to read things more than once to get the full benefit.

      Besides I wanted to try out that cool reply link. 😉

    Thanks for this tip – I didn’t realise I could reply to an individual comment without addressing everyone.

    Nice tip 🙂

    This is what you need to do.

    In your dashboard go to “Settings”, “Discussion”, in the section “Other Comment Settings” check the Enable threaded (nested) comments. Then you can choose from 1 to 10 comments to have threaded.

    Thanks a million JAM.

    This is good to know. This feature is available on the family website that my family uses, but I wasn’t aware that WordPress now offers it. Thanks for letting us slowpokes know.

      It is a really nice option to have. I have no idea how long it’s be available. Like I say, I didn’t find it. I stole it the idea from Just A Mom…..I mean Maddie did 😉

    Is this a “new” new button? Cause the reply thingy has been there for a while, but it doesn’t work very well. I’ll have to try it! Thanks for passing this along.

      I have no idea how new it is allison. I don’t normally fool around with things. If it ain’t broke I don’t snoop around but so far it seems to be working okay. I think it’s nice for everyone. Sometimes you’d just like to say something to one person and now it seems like it’s easier to do that.

    I really thank to one who wrote this article. I have always been reading and writing texts like this in blogs. Also, I, as a daily writer, present my respects to everyone. I just watched videos like this in youtube. I research in all areas.

    I think people must first research before writing…
