Replying to a Reply on Tumblr, Is it possible?

This is a good Tumblr tip that all newcomers hace to face when they want to interact in their tumblelog. If you have replies enabled (you can activate the replies going to Customize >>> Community >>> Replies) both from the people you follow or other tumblrs following you for more than two weeks you sure wondered ….How do you do to reply to a reply on Tumblr?.

Bad news, you can’t reply back to replies that were left in your own posts.  However, if you have Discus Comments installed, that would be the solution, so start using that addon instead of allowing replies, which is an old and not very complete Tumblr Feature.

It’s fairly important to remark that you cannot delete individual replies to a post, unless you delete the entire post.

    Hey Tums:D
    Why not just make replying right on any post possible? That would make things easy and a lot of tumblrs happy :-)

    There is an extension that allows people to reply to replies. I’d share it, but I found this blog looking for it. But your information is incorrect, it is possible, you just have to know the extension to add.

    I am so confused right now…. someone replied to me via a question they asked, but I can’t reply to them. How in the world am I supposed to continue the conversation I’m having with them, if I can’t reply to them?
