Still trying to solve this difficulty; gaining no replies; it appears I can Post, but cannot Reply –– Calling all Moderators !

 

– – –

 

At a post, I hit Reply.

 

Type my comment.

 

Hit Post.

 

My reply does not show as a new reply.  Did a Refresh, Sign Out, etc.  Nor does it appear in 'My follows', though other new Replies do show there. 

 

What am I overlooking?

I don't follow you, at all.  What do you mean by, "Yes".

 

What are you suggesting?  [FWIW, incognito mode yields same result.]

 

This seems not a fully uncommon occurence, as others have posted on similar roadblock.  I can Reply to this post, here, but cannot Reply to Joel, Wanting a script to Activate, then Play, an RMA on another page.

 

Constructive guidance is heartily welcomed.

Yes, and Yes.

 

1)  I normally use the gray Reply button seen beneath 'latest reply'.  This opens a window in which to type.  Beneath that window is a blue Post button.

 

Type my comment.  Hit Post.  Buttons gray-out.  Browser progress bar indicates an ~1 second load time.  I see my reply posted to the community.

 

In replying to Joel, when I hit Post, buttons gray-out, progress bar transits in a tiny fraction of a second, no error messages indicated.  I do not see my reply posted to the community.  

 

You metion "the blue reply button".  I see a blue Reply button beneath the first post in a subject.  Is there any difference between that one, and the gray Reply button beneath 'latest reply'?

 

In any event, either button works for my replies to this thread.  Both buttons fail, for the thread of interest.

 

2)  I have tried three browsers.  This would seem immaterial, since my attempts failing at that post, are with the same browser as my attempts succeeding at this post.

Attached, find a screen recording made just now, documenting a.) Failure of Reply at the post of interest, and b.) Success of Reply in my immediate-above 'Testing, testing' reply message.

  • The blue Reply button is used for "first level answers", that means, answers in chronological order. These answers are always appended to the end of a topic. I prefer that.
  • If you'd like to comment under a specific answer, you can use the gray Reply button next to that answer. This leads to nested or deeply nested answers.

Why thank you.  That is informatively helpful.  I was unaware of the distinction.

 

Now if I can just get a Reply up there, I'm set.

I seem to remember there's a restriction with nested replies where after a certain number of nests they no longer appear. But I can't remember exactly the details. I'll see if I can find the details.

Okay I found this thread, that says that at depth 3, only 10 replies are displayed. I feel like that was increased to 25 but I can't find the relevant thread.

 

[CRITICAL BUG] REPLIES ARE DISAPPEARING

 

In any case, possibly you are hitting this restriction with your replies to replies?

Thank you for investigating.

 

But I remain puzzled.  The Original Post Wanting a script to Activate, then Play, an RMA on another page.

 

1)  So, as to counting Depths and Replies, is it not the case that, currently represented there, the count is a Depth of 1, with 4 Replies ?

 

2)  As to your question, am I correct in discerning that my 'replies to replies' is equal to zero ?

It doesn't look like you'd be hitting that restriction in the post you list (although with posts with many levels of nesting, it's not easy to tell how nested something is, in my opinion). It was just a thought.

Oh and I can see one reply to a reply. If you use any button except the one directly under the original post, it's a reply to a reply and gets a shaded background.

Hi @Brian_Raila 

What does that mean in concrete terms?

Can you answer now in the other thread?

Or is that not yet possible?

 

I just see your "fake/test answer" there ...

Don’t worry about my feelings regarding your answer.  It’s rather what I fully expected, but had hoped to dodge with the caveat about my awareness of software evolution.  There’s no shortage of folks who echo your recommendation.  Problem is, none have been able to identify an equivalent alternative.  But all that’s a bit of an aside, summarized below.

I have no need for operation via mobile and/or browser-based Adobe viewers.  And in the Web realm, I would sacrifice attachments, predictable formatting, magnification, and commenting for collaborative revision, never mind logic-managed operation of media. *
 
As for ‘rethinking my solution’, I’ve been rethinking expression by temporal media for more than 50 years.
 
Logic-managed temporal media became practical for me, with the videodisc formats of the 1970s.  I began Web development in ’94, with colleagues from Vermeer’s FrontPage.  I was delighted when Netscape supported images in the same window as HTML text, rather than in a separate region.  I have tracked ColdFusion, InDesign, HTML5, in5, and so on.  All of the above represent hundreds of iterations of embedded multimedia support.  In the present day, nearly all the requirement seems met only by the 27-year development of each Flash, and the PDF.

Well, that worked.

 

Its greatest deficiency is absence of essential embedded links, but also formatting, etc.

I have extracted the text - without problems.

 

If another (better than me english speaking) member for example @Amebr could give the ok for content - I could replace your "fake text" in the other thread with this.

No.  A full and proper solution is necessary.

 

It is completely inadequate to simply convey 'plain text' in this Forum.  Were that adequate, I'd have done so in the first place.

 

There are compelling reasons why Posts are supposed to support, and users are reliant on:

  • Bullet items
  1. Numbered lists

Formatted text

Web links Amebr

 

Inserted photos, such as pixxxelschubser_0-1616711477730.jpeg.

Inserted video, etc.

 

My post, the one being discussed here, relies on all of the above, some mentioned in my previous reply.

 

If you did not discern such, it is not, at all, the failure of your abilities and skills.  It is a failure due to the inherent limitations of plain text.

 

I would be most appreciative if @Amebr or anyone else could investigate this matter for a productive solution.

 

Vielen dank.

 

– BR

By @Brian_Raila

 

 

That only can be done by Adobe staff members.

Note: This is a User-to-User-Forum. @Amebr and me are users like you. I can do some moderation. But that's all. Please wait for an answer in the other Thread where I mentioned an Adobe staff member.

 

But I wonder: You can post all these things here. Maybe your problems has to do with a part of your content???

 

And one thing:

Do you have permission from me to post my picture? No you have not.
I'll replace it with your own.

Please accept my sincere apology, pixxxelschubser.  I did not wish, in the least, to offend you.

 

I was making a point about 'plain text' limitations, and simply grabbed the nearest [literally] image at hand.  I regret that I didn't simply find a neutral image of some sort, instead.

 

I continue to find your posts helpful, in sorting this out.  I hope Silvia_CC might have an approach, and hope she's following here.

 

As for my content, that's worth consideration.  The text went through.  There are several links there.

 

I have an idea.  I shall test each non-plain-text component here, one at a time.  By the process of elimination, something should be identified as "not allowable".

well, two words I figured might cause a problem with the nannybot were fine. (Although that nanny-bot blocks some terms that have pretty niche slang meanings that I'm not aware of.) 

 

And the example link you posted (to the forums) wouldn't cause a problem. Links to other websites, maybe, depending.
