    Confusion on who is replying to whom?

    In the forum (which from time to time I have found helpful), I've found helpful, I've never been sure who is replying to whom? Also, I have searched for a way to print a limited number of posts without printing all.

    Unless the person posting the reply includes a quote -- using the Reply With Quote button -- you may just have to guess. Unlike some other boards, this installation does not currently allow "threaded" or "outline" display mode, only the "flat" or "linear" display mode.

    Edit:

    Good question. The Printable Version of a thread has no tools for selecting posts, but you might be able to use a browser add-on to hide posts you don't want to print.

    Walker,

    As a matter of etiquette {the Emily Post variety} I always try to provide a salutation in my posts even if it's only an abbreviation of the user's ID. As a side benefit others know who I'm answering.
