Is there a way to tell the parent of a comment when indenting flatens? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Indented replies help show which message in under which message. But there is a limit to how much indenting is done, in which case it is hard to tell to which message it is responding.


    Is 4 another reply to 2 or a non-indented reply to 3?

    Is there a way to tell the parent of a comment?

    Hello Brian,


    Thank you for your post!  Unfortunately I am not able to determine which forum or newsgroup is best suited for your question at hand.  Can you provide me a little more detail in regards to the product or technology you are inquiring about?

  • The forums themselves.

    The indenting caps after a few levels and flattens.

  • Give the flat view a try, after they fix the ordering bug.  I never have much of a problem figuring out which response matches which post.  Or finding the most recent post.  As long as threaded view cannot be toggled on-the-fly, it is not much use.

  • Yes, *after* they fix it. I can use a flat view, but threaded can be better.

  • I really love that reply from the MS Moderator.

    These are forums; they have messages and replies and the replies are indented.

    Also Brian has posted on-topic messages here before (and recently).

    Surely it's not that difficult to guess that this question is about the forums !
