    Hi,

    Your email address is currently associated with a guest account.  Since you are technically not logged in until you have a registered account, we will be unable to post thread replies until you do so.  If you still cannot post replies after registering, let us know and we will be happy to see what else we can do.

    Ahh, that did it. Can I suggest using an error message to let users know about that rather than letting them think your forum reply is broken?

    Glad to hear it!  I will pass this request along to our development team to see if this process can be streamlined a bit more.  I agree that knowing you are unable to post due to not being registered would be a big help.  Thank you for the suggestion.

    I just tried using IE not logged in, and it still just shows "Please wait..." on the button when I reply to a posting. You said that an error message is "updated" but there was no error message at all, so I'm wondering what you updated. I think the proper way to handle this would be to only display the reply form if a user is logged in. You could have a message that says, "Please sign in to post a reply" or something like that.

    Have you tried it with another browser ?

    Your screenshot is of an entirely different screen. I'm referring to the reply feature on this forum, not to sending an email to someone. Here's a shot of my test, that still just says Please Wait...

    Hello Joe,

    This bug has been fixed. You may now reply to public threads even without a JotForm account.

    Cheers!
