Sometimes, replies to a post don’t get flagged.
It is annoying because it can introduce a doubt in a subject where several members participate.
Also, I don’t think the user will get notified, am I wrong ?
=> here I have hit the “Reply” button within GS290’s post
=> after sending my post, it won’t get flagged as a direct reply to GS290
=> sometimes it works :
Any clue ?

Hi @smu44 this won’t show as a reply to you as I hit the reply at the foot of the page! The Reply button with a curl works as we expect only when you use it to reply to a post further up the thread. I made a load of mistakes till I recently found these https://discourse.p2pu.org/t/how-replies-work-on-discourse/81 and https://discourse.mcneel.com/t/what-happened-to-the-in-reply-to-link/274. I found the OP here an interesting read https://discourse.codinghorror.com/t/web-discussions-flat-by-design/23
Edit, the notification part I don’t know the answer to, as my notifications seem a little bit random, but I think that is all in my control.
Thanks for your reply
I’m aware that Reply button at bottom will not be a direct reply to a post, but to the thread.
My problem is, when I hit the Reply button within a post it sometimes appears as a general reply after sending (as if I’ve hit the bottom Reply button).
That’s what happened to this reply
I will try to prove you correct by using the Reply within the post now.
I treat it as we always try to reply to the thread as a community conversation, only the reply to a thread in the past requires special attention!
I agree, this can explain the behavior.
Edit : you are right, thanks !
Testing a reply for post #2
I took a long time to work this out!
Edit, to try copy you and have your avatar in this reply, by replying to the OP did not happen. I now realise is because “reply to OP” = reply to thread.
