There's not much context.

I mean, I do not know how to reply to a forum post. I click the reply button, and nothing happens.

Just press the quote button next to it and it'll end up looking like this.

Not absolutely sure, but I think the difference between the Reply in a user's post and the 'bottom' Reply is that in the former the user gets a notification of your post whereas in the latter it's just regarded as an addition to the general thread, not addressed to or addressing anyone specific...

This is not correct. The "reply" that appears in each person's post is misleading. It does not notify the user who made that post or in any other way indicate a reply to a specific person. It's just a quick way to get to the box to enter a reply to the thread in general.

To ensure a user gets a notification (if they have not turned off notifications) you need to click on Quote (or check the box next to "Quote" in several posts you want to respond to, and click "Quote Selected" at the bottom of the page).

Someone explained this to me earlier, but I thank you for helping me.
