This might be a weird or stupid question, but how do you add a reply to a post on any of the challenge subforums? I can’t figure this out; please advise.

It’s not. There’s no need to feel sorry for asking a question.

The forum posts for the challenges that give hints and solutions are closed to prevent posting. When we had them unlocked, people were able to edit them as they were wiki’s. Some people either by accident or on purpose were putting their own solutions or crap inside the wiki posts. We closed them to prevent people from editing them. The wiki posts are now being moved over to https://guide.freecodecamp.org/certificates

There will be a lock symbol at the bottom and it will say “closed”. Something like this:
