Replying to Blog Comments

Does anybody know if there are plans for Weebly to start directly notifying our readers when we respond to their comments left on our blogs? I am always fearful, that unless they remember to check back in, or I send a separate message to them on my Google Plus post, they will think me rude for not replying to them.

If you're using the Weebly comment system, the visitor has the option to be notified by e-mail when someone replies. We can't make it automatic, because that could be considered spam. This way, the visitor can opt to be notified or not.

Re: Replying to Blog Comments

How do I use the Weebly Comment system. I got an email notification of a comment, but don't see how to reply!

Re: Replying to Blog Comments

When I go to reply to a comment on my blog, it asks me to fill in my name, etc. I shouldn't have to do that when it's my own blog. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

That's normal and it gives you the discretion to use whatever name you want. For example, some businesses may want to use their business name rather than someone's personal name. If you're logged into the Weebly account that owns the site, your reply will look visually different than other people so it's obvious that the site owner is replying.

Same here! I have looked everywhere. I see some posts here in the community area indicating that when I reply to a comment, I have to fill in my name, etc. 

I can't just hit reply and respond to comments on my own blog? Weebly was so highly rated and my experience was great until I got to the blog part and the lack of functionality compared to all other top site builders is staggering.

That's exactly what we need. A reply to this comment button where we don't have to fill in our name and website.

So much YES! I could really use the reply to comment section! I am baffled by the fact that I have to approve my own comments since you cannot reply within your account. Absolutely nuts! When might this be worked into the programming of Weebly?? I understand readers not being automatically notified of replies, but I should be able to reply in the same place I approve comments! Thanks so much in advance Smiley Happy

Glad I found this thread. I thought I was missing something that should be super obvious! Would love for a reply button. Like how we can easily reply on here even!
