I can't reply to my own post
« on: Wednesday 09 July 08 16:17 BST (UK) »
I posted this on the useful links board a while ago
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,310159.0.html

and just went to reply with another link that I found but couldn't! No option to... My idea in setting up this thread was that others could add and they can't either. This is a picture of my options - there is not a reply option. What can I do?

Thanks

There is not a reply button there when I view it. I have modified it I wanted to reply. There really really really is no reply button really really.

Thanks

I think I am right, you can only modify your own or reply to someone else's.

The reply button is below all the postings on that topic.
You actually reply to the thread, not the last posting...

At the bottom of this thread there are the buttons reply, poll, notify, send to a friend and print.

But at the bottom of my Baptist History thread there are only poll, notify, send to a friend and print.

so no reply. It is really not there

strange - you need an Admin type to look at this.


I've replied on it, and I've set up another thread to test if I could reply to one of my own .... which I could ....
