Commenting on a post

Forum posts and some other content types on IgorExchange accept comments from users who have logged in. In addition, users are allowed to edit their comments after they have been submitted.

Creating a comment

  1. At the bottom of any post and certain content types, click on Add new comment.
  2. If you would like, you may fill in the subject box.
  3. Fill in the body box with the text of your comment. As with posts, it is possible to designate certain code as source code and have it colored appropriately. See Code syntax highlighting for more information.
  4. Click Preview to see a preview of your comment. If everything looks right click Submit.

Editing a comment

Users are allowed to edit comments posted on the forums whenever they like. You will only be able to edit comments that you have created.

Note: Comments attached to some types of content, such as code snippets, are not editable, even by the original author, if there has been a direct reply to the comment in question. If you do not see an "Edit" button then you do not have the power to edit a comment.

To edit a comment:

  1. Click the edit button below the comment you wish to edit.
  2. Make changes to the body field of the comment.
  3. Click the Submit button.
