If people are logged in, the reply form should be right there under the 
message.  If they're not, then they need to be told to log in (or join).

There are two basic options for message viewing:
mode=topic  and mode=day

mode=day is the default and shows the message by itself

mode=topic shows the message and all the replies to it.  In many templates 
you can get to it by clicking the Topic link at the top of the message.
