Why can I suddenly not respond to comment replies?

  1. I am not able to respond to replies. I leave a comment of another blog post and get a reply, then when I try to reply it doesn't work. Despite hitting the reply key several times, it will not work.

    The blog I need help with is

  3. Hi,
    I am using the same browser as before, Safari version 6.0.4 (8536.29.13).

    It has just suddenly stopped and clearing my cache and the tips aren't changing anything. I can still comment, but when they comment back; I cannot reply.



  4. Are you referring to replying to comments on your own blog?

  5. No, I am commenting on another friends blog and they respond. I then attempt to reply to their response and 'no dice.' It is not working. This is occurring on the notification section, by the way. I get notified and usually respond to the notification, until now.

  6. What is the URL starting with http:// of the friend's blog?

  7. Mike, the same with me! I have cleared my "cache" and I have changed nothing since the last time I was able to "Reply". Whatever happened, happened in the last couple of hours! I've just posted same on the forum! Doreen

  8. It is not just one friend's blog, it is every one that I try to respond to...

  9. In addition to the previous, I cannot reply to comments made on MY posts and OTHERS'.

  10. Then you do have a browser related issue.

  11. Thanks Doreen! I thought it was something to do with my Safari or BT! At least I'm not alone!

  12. @treadlemusic
    Please go back to your own thread and post only in it.

  13. Do you want the URL's of all the comments I tried to reply to?

  14. Although I can comment on other posts, not having that problem. Just the replying to comments.

  15. So, timethief? Do you want all the URL's I've tried to reply to?

  16. Sorry about that. The reply-to functionality in the notifications menu should now be working again.

  17. No. I have tagged this and the other threads for Staff attention. Please be patient while waiting.

  18. Yay! for Staff. :)

  19. Yay!!!! Thanks gibrown (staff) and timethief for all your help!! You guys rock! Just tried it and problem solved!

    Thanks again guys!


  20. Truth be told I did nothing that was helpful beyond tagging the thread for help. gibrown (staff) was the magician. :)

  21. Well trust me, timethief I had no idea what was going on, you at least gave me some possible solutions and using those, I at least found out what wasn't wrong! Thanks again mate!

    And a huge Thanks to magic man gibrown! :-D
