Back to the main page?

After submitting a reply, you should see three options appear, including:
1.) Click here to view your post.
2.) Track this discussion. (If untracked)
3.) Bookmark your submission. (IE and Firefox only)

Clicking #1 links directly to your reply, so there is no need to visit any other page. Note, however, that if there is a delay in processing your reply it may not be immediately available, in which case the above links are not provided. In such cases, a note that your post will appear shortly will be displayed instead.
