There are a number of ways to do this:

1. Insert a link to the post to which you wish to respond. The following two videos provide different means to embed or establish a link in your post. Make it clear to the reader that this is a link to another post. You should also refer to the link in any instructions to the editor. Instructions to the editor should be at the top of the body of your post and in between {braces or curly brackets}. This is different from normal square edit brackets.
