What happened to the reply button on the comment section?
I have realized the reply button is becoming available only after you scroll all the way down to the comment box, type your reply and hit the post comment button. Anyone with an explanation to this?
Hi Pat - this is usual for me, so I don't fully understand your question - unless you've been experiencing the comment box appearing elsewhere on the page beneath a hub, and now it's appearing for you as it always has for me.
Also, I don't know if it makes a difference as to the where the comment box gets positioned, but some hubbers set their comments capsule to have their most recent comments appearing first as you scroll down, and perhaps that would mean the comments box appears at the top of all the comments.
You'd have to look at some hubs, check the dates on the comments, and see if this is true (that hubbers who set their comments capsule to have their latest comments appear first have their comment box appear at the top, and that those hubbers who set their comments capsule to have their oldest comments appear first have their comment box appear at the bottom.)
If you mean that the post comment button becomes visible (wherever the comment box itself appears) only after you type a comment, it could perhaps be that you are experiencing a slow Internet connection, even if just temporarily, and the button has not yet loaded to the page.
My case is what you have mentioned on your last paragraph, but I doubt if it is a slow internet speed.After approving a comment, the reply button doesn't appear. It will only appear after I post the comment using the comment box beating the logic.
This question was recently asked in the "Report a Problem" forum. You can find the staff response and explanation there: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/97577#
Hope this helps!
I was just about to ask this question. I see that you asked 2 months ago so now I'm wondering... are they going to fix it?

I've come across a hub, now and then, without a comment section. Is this a choice made by the author? If so, why?

Maybe I'm just not understanding something (which is entirely possible). Readers make comments and the authors have a choice to 'approve' or 'deny' the comments. And I like to reply to those that comment... fine; now this is my problem. I approve the comments made and then wait...

I have been getting one or two questions every day in my email through the new "contact the author" feature. The questions have been very important; almost always they are questions/details that can help other readers.Since these readers are sending emails instead of leaving the...

How important is it to have a comment section on your hubs, or How important is it to respond?I was going through some of the hubs that belong to some of the top paid hubbers ( info found on the success story page) and a lot of those people do not respond to comments. In fact, many of their...

When I receive a notification of a new comment on one of my Hubs, the "Reply" button is no longer available. The "Deny" button is still there. Funny thing is when I have multiple comments. I answer the first one via the "Leave a Comment" Box at the bottom. When I...

Have you noticed that when you go to write a hub you now have to put in the comment section. What is up with that, Do people realize it is not there anymore? I didn't realize it at first. I went to comment on someone's hub, and no comment section. Okay, so who reads the 'announcements?'
