REPLY button

The REPLY button is only displayed if you are currently logged in to JewishGen.
If you are merely viewing displayed messages while not logged in, this button is not displayed.
After logging in, you must re-open the message or group of messages you received from JewishGen.
If you simply re-display webpage that did not have the button, it still will not be there.
That webpage was not changed when you logged in.
If you re-open the message(s) from JewishGen after logging in, the REPLY button should be displayed under every message.

Thanks. Will check it out later today. Seems to me this is clunky at best. Why the extra step?  Jeff

When you click on reply there is a "Reply to group & sender" button bottom left and a "private" button bottom right. If you click on "private" then "Reply to group and sender" changes to "Reply to sender" which should enable you to send a private message.

I have "reply" but I am not logged into Jewishgen.
I use Firefox on Windows 10 using
yahoo mail.

In the screenshot, the "reply" is in the second from bottom
line.

If you use a POP client, you may not have the links.

YMMV

 The saga continues. From this cell phone, I first had no Reply button then saw a link to sign in to Jewishgen, only to be told I didn't have a password

Yes, I found this out a few says ago.  For some reason I wasn’t logged in.

I stay logged on to Jewish Gen connect so I don’t have to keep logging in.

I use Mozilla Thunderbird.  Below the message appear 3 options; on the left "REPLY", in the middle "LIKE", on the right "MORE".  Clicking on  "REPLY" brings up an email form at the bottom left is "REPLY TO GROUP & SENDER" .  Immediately to the right is "DISCARD".  At the far right is "PRIVATE".  Clicking on "PRIVATE" changes the "REPLY TO GROUP & SENDER" button to "REPLY TO SENDER".

I forgot to add that I do not have to log into JewishGen.

I did log on to JewishGen but still saw no reply button.  Then I futzed around, officially (re)joining the discussion group and then wandering thru my account demographics and gave up in frustration.  Subsequently went back to a daily summary message and amazingly, there was a reply button!!  Now it shows up every time I click on a subject, regardless whether I'm logged in.   I wish I could reproduce the path for you that brought me success but I can't. 

BUT....just now i brought up the website.  I'm not logged in  Displayed though are 4 login IDs.  I had previously logged in using my researcher #.  There were also 2 old email addresses that forwarded emails to my 3rd currently used address.  With the account activity of a few days ago, i seem to recall adding the new address.  Of the 4 login IDs available to login, that is the only one to show "groups.jewishgen.org".  The older 3 show "from this website".

Maybe that's how i did it.  Just sharing.

You have to register to Jewishgen Groups, which is different from Jewishgen. And then to be logged in to Jewishgen Groups before seeing reply buttons. 
Could this be added to a Wiki if not there.
