For certain reasons I prefer to reply to readers' comments from the admin panel (edit-comments.php). It's not a problem with a mouse. When I place the cursor over a comment, the comment management links pop-up, including the reply option. It's shown below, albeit with the Russian UI.
The Reply link opens the reply form right below the comment.
It doesn't work that way for me on a tablet PC. I can place a finger on the comment and the links appear, but when I try to press any link they all disappear.
FWIW, I have an HP tablet and use IE10 (metro/desktop) on Windows 8, and have no desire to change the browser.
Basically, there are two questions:
- Is there an obvious option I'm missing that enables me to accomplish the goal?
- If not, how can I modify WP behavior to display these links permanently?
Thanks for your attention to my questions :)
