    You can't grab the element you need by:

    myInputs = document.getElementsByClassName("uiLinkButton comment_link").click();

    You would have to either...

    myInputs = document.getElementsByClassName("uiLinkButton").click(); or
    myInputs = document.getElementsByClassName("comment_link").click();

    and some points you need to consider...

    1. getElementsByClassName is not supported in all browsers, older browsers need a bit of javascript to do the grabbing of class elements
    2. getElementsByClassName returns an array
    3. you can only click one element at a time!
    4. points 2 & 3 are clues as to the other problem that you will have...
    STOP using $ prefix on JavaScript variable names...
    Please remember to wrap any code you have in forum tags:-

    [CODE]...[/CODE] [HTML]...[/HTML] [PHP]...[/PHP]

    If you can't think outside the box, you will be trapped forever with no escape...
