    Not able to reply to comments in some of my hubs. Any idea how to go around this?

    I've had a few comments approved by adminstration in some of my hubs. But, when adminstration approves the comment, there's no button to give you the option to reply to the comment unless the author of the hub is the one that approved the comment. Is there a way around this so that I can provide my own comment to a comment? I try to monitor comments from my account page and I'm signed in.
    Thanks for the help.

    I am not an expert but have some thoughts. Peeking I see many of your Hubs on the Niche Site 'Axle Addict'. A Niche site is its own website and the format is a little different from the main site Perhaps those comments are from those Hubs?

    I am not sure if the Niche sites are set up for comments to be responded to for those articles? And, those sites are only where Admin do approve comments. I have never heard anyway say that with Hubs on the Main Site, but have with the Niche sites.

    Anyway, I think you can respond to comments using your 'My Account' Page where your Hubs are listed. GoTo the 'Comments' link for global comments. There all comments not responded to should be listed. You 'should' be able to approve and respond there. BTW . . . that is a good place to respond when many comments have been made and do it easily.

      Hi Tim
      Yes, I think the ones I've noticed the "reply" button not showing up come from the niche site. They may have a different configuration.
      Just a few days ago I discovered the 'comments' tab in 'my account' and been using it since. Thanks.
