At the bottom of each thread/post there used to be a Quick Reply box, where you could add a response to the end of the thread - it seems to have disappeared and you have to click the 'reply' button on the post you wish to respond to.

Cann we have it back please?

Odd ... don't recall it (but then I never used it).  About how long ago did it go?  Are you sure it was on the Coffee Shop and not some other forum?   I've had a look through the option settings in case something had got changed by a fat fingered admin such as myself but I can find a button to push to turn this on.

You can "reply" on the bottom, or "quote" on an individual thread ... I'm slightly confused; you'll have to show me next time I see you.

Sorry, ChrisB, but I agree with grahame on this one: the Coffee Shop forum has never had such a feature.  The two options are (and have always been) 'reply' or 'reply with quote' - and members with long memories will recall my ongoing requests that 'reply with quote' should only be used sparingly.  Wink

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

Requests that fall on deaf ears.

No, it definitely existed and has just disappeared.

Hmm.  I'm not convinced.

At the top and bottom of each page of posts in any topic is a 'reply' button. That puts any new post at the end of the thread - irrespective of how many pages further on that may be. I think that's what ChrisB meant - and that button is still there.

If you want to reply to a specific post, and keep your comments in the context of that particular post, you do need to go to that post and click on the 'quote' button. Your new post will still appear at the end of the thread, however many pages further on that may be, but it will also contain the original wording you have chosen to comment on.

Neither am I Chris(fN).   It's likely I'll be at the same meeting as ChrisB on Saturday and (ChrisB) is you can show me which menu / on what circumstances there is no longer a button I can take a further look.   Really odd because I've not changed anything that I think would cause a button to be lost, and it's a very odd failure indeed to cause this problem and no (reported) other issue(s) yet.

Edit to add - "Recent posts" does include both "reply" and "reply with quote" at the base - perhaps folks have noted / remember than and thought it was everywhere.  See attachment just added to illustrate.

Do you have something you would like to add to this thread, or would you like to raise a new question at the Coffee Shop? Please [register] (it is free) if you have not done so before, or login (at the top of this page) if you already have an account - we would love to read what you have to say!

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
