Adding replies to a Blog - Your assistance please


Good day everyone,

My community has just migrated to Lithium from Jive and I have a functionality question.

I believe the best way to make an announcement or teach a best practice is with a blog; correct?

The issue is, although people can comment on the blog, they cannot respond directly to another person who has also responded.

Is that possible?  Rather than a railfall of comments, a way to respond directly to a fellow poster?

Thank you,

We use alerts for announcements....if important enough. And we link the alert to a post in the community news board. We use the blog for story telling and specific program updates. HoweverI think your question is not a route the best practice of that but I rather go to how you can see threaded conversations in comments to a blog. It sounds like the same question you had before in this community? Only difference is the the conversation style?

Thanks Wendy - you are correct - it is the ability for anyone within a discussion to clearly respond to others at any point of the discussion.

I believe it is also helpful to make it easy for people who are not participating to see who is responding to who.

We asked Lithium Professional Service about this, they advised they can change the style on blog comments to mirror discussion style (chronological w/ Quote) but they aren't able to have threaded comments on blogs. :-(
