Hi Monks!
In the top view of the nodes e.g. SOPW i see all the questions and i could use the button "Offer your reply", since i want to read answers before posting the same as other helpers i click the node, from there i could only answer to nodes of "other answerer", is there a way to answer to the original posting directly without going back?
If not: Then this will be an item on my ever growing wishlist ;-).


Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Use "Comment on" immediately below the toplevel message — (if I'm understanding you correctly...)

      Hmm. Yes. I searched for it at my users settings, and was missing the things right in front of me. Sorry. *Note to myself: be more patient, ask on CB first, next time* ...

      Thanks MH

    "is there a way to answer to the original posting directly without going back? "

    There's always a way. I use tabs in my browser to solve this dilemma. Open the link to reply to the OP in a new tab first, then continue reading the other replies. Switch to the new tab when you are ready to answer.

[mz2255]: I'm trying to post a question to "seekers of perl wisdom" but always getting a permission denied when I want to submit. There are no links in my post...
[ambrus]: again? someone complained about this just a few days ago (although eventually they could post)
[choroba]: Can you post the question in mz2255's scratchpad?
[ambrus]: Corion, if you're here, can you check the spam filter logs to see what's triggering this time?
[ambrus]: Petroza had trouble posting yesterday, but has posted Issues Fetching URL with a variable token since.
[mz2255]: Yes, just edited the scratchpad. Not sure if I'm doing something wrong, it's my first time.
