  • Only the lower right Post Reply actually posts a reply

    I had a new forum member who couldn't figure out how to post. Apparently he was typing into the
    Write Something....
    box, but then repeatedly clicking the upper left "Post Reply" button and not the lower right one.

    the upper left Post Reply merely aligns the page, moves you to the area where you may "Write Something" otherwise it does nothing.

    Obvious to me, not so obvious to a new forum member.

    Just a suggestion anyway, to somehow make it more clear what that upper left Post Reply button does, because it does not post a reply!

    The upper light blue button does three things.

    1. Moves the cursor to the editor at the bottom of the page.
    2. Tells you how many posts you're quoting.
    3. Copies the contents of those posts into the editor box if they don't already exist.

    It isn't intended to submit the contents of the editor. To be honest, I am not even sure if it is needed or why the product designers thought it was useful. We haven't received much feedback on it to make changes.
