Replying to Comments
Movable Type 4 contains a new feature which allows you to reply to a comment from within Movable Type’s Manage Comments screen. This streamlines the workflow for an author or site administrator of communicating with a blog’s readers, since now you can manage (publish, unpublish, mark as spam, etc.) comments and reply to comments from a single location.
To reply to a comment:
- Locate the comment you wish to reply to in the Manage Comments screen
- Place your mouse over the row of the comment you wish to reply to. When you hover over the row, the system will place a “Reply” link next to the comment title in the listing screen.
- Click on the “Reply” link, and the system will display the Reply to Comment screen
From the Reply to comment screen you can:
- Post your comment reply
- Preview your comment before it is posted
- Cancel your reply and return to the comment listing screen
