Regardless of who you book with you can normally only select seats on the airlines website although the rules and fees for seat selection varies from airline to airline.

In some cases booking direct with the airline allows seat selection as part of the booking process - booking seats via a 3rd party will normally be requests which are passed on to the airline.

You cannot book using Tripadvisor. Using TA's flight search engine, it eventually leads you to the airline's website. Whether you can select seat on the airline's website depends on its seating policy. Some might require payment to choose a seat, some might require payment to choose a preferred seat, some don't charge at all. and some won't let you choose a seat in advance.

Contact the airline direct to find out the go, then book online. We just booked a flight and could not choose seats at the time but once the payment and all were confirmed then we could go back in online and choose our seats - remember to check out seat guru when you know which plain you will be travelling in before choosing
