How do you open the "replies" to your announcements?
Hi Mary Louise Praesent - There is full information on this feature here: How do I allow or disallow announcement replies in a course?
If that does not work, as the top of that document points out, you'll have to check the Settings menu item in your course, scroll all the way down under the Course Details tab of settings, and then click the more options link on the bottom. That, in turn, will lead to a series of check boxes including one called Disable comments on announcements. If that is enabled, be sure to disable it and then click Update Course Details. Then you can follow the instructions on the first link.
Hope this helps, Mary!
