Oh…. and Twinkly…you wrote (yesterday) " so I wrote my own @ Bev in the regular comment box at the end of the page; rewrote my reply- and It worked!??"
Um….no reason it wouldn’t work…. your comment includes whatever you type in the box…. so if you type @somebody that’s what it says.
And on GoComics forums a comment made with the reply button goes at the bottom anyway, rather than being “threaded” right under the comment you’re responding to.
There’s no particular magic in the reply button except that it puts @so-and-so in blue as a link to their profile…
You can even do that yourself if you want to bother…as in at Twinkly Lightswhich is
<a href="http://www.gocomics.com/profiles/1149730">at Twinkly Lights</a>
(Normally I use an “at” sign, not the word “at” …but that’s also used to make the code display, so I couldn’t when showing you the code.
