Marking as Accepted Solution

Go to solution

Sorry to put this here but I didn't get a reply elsewhere. I keep getting emails asking me to mark replies to my posts as the Accepted Solution. However, when I press the link in the email to view the thread there is no button evident to mark any of the replies as the solution. Can you tell me how I am supposed to do this please?


Thanks, Simon.

Hello Simon!

Thank you for asking, and not just ignoring/filtering those emails. Marking the solution of a thread as such is quite important for others coming across your question (which happens quite often, and sometimes years later).

Unfortunately I don't have a thread right now that I could mark myself, so I cannot send you a screenshot. Normally, there is an Accept as Solution button next to the Reply button beneath each post. There is also this handy page explaining a bit more: Using Accepted Solutions. I hope that helps!


In case that button is definitely not there: Do you maybe have an add blocker installed in your browser that accidentally filters this button?

I've found the problem. It seems it is possible to view the forum website without logging in, then when I press REPLY I get automatically logged in, without me realising. So, if I press a link in a 'Mark as Accepted Solution' email then I won't be logged in when I view it, so there is no ACCEPT AS SOLUTION button. Logging in reveals it.

Perfect, thank you for reporting back! Now go forward and mark your last reply as solution, as it contains the solution to your question (-:
