    I have approved a comment left on one of my hubs, but the box for me to reply has not appeared. This has never happened before. Please help

      Hubs that have been placed on the specialty sites are rearranged so that their comment boxes are at the top of the comments section instead of the bottom as we have become accustomed to. 

      Also, try reloading the page.  Only takes a minute and sometimes it helps if a comment box is missing.

      If this is not the case and there really is no comment box available I would suggest you write to  They're usually pretty good about getting back to you the same day.

        @ smile au fait,
        I have met with a bit of aggravation with the
        same situation. But you have answered this

    I find it easier to follow Glenn Stok's advice - I always go to My Account, then click on "Comments", and approve and reply from there.  It's a lot less confusing!

    I don't like HP's comment section at all because one can not reply directly to a person's comment. But when I do reply I use the 'comments' in 'my account' too and put the name of the one I want to reply to first with a # in front, so at least then you know for who the reply was meant to.

      @/#Tita, what I do sometimes, is go to the profile page of the
      one who left the comment and go into Fan Mail and then hit
      the "Send (Name of Hubber) Fan Mail" and send them a brief
      thank you for their comments, but I said 'sometimes.' I do not
      do this all of the time.
