New: forum quick replies

Travel Forums System Talk New: forum quick replies

1. Posted by Peter (Admin 5789 posts) 5y

Added a new feature into the forums which should make it just a little easier to respond to threads. There is now a form at the end of each thread (on the last page, after the last post) that will allow you to reply right from the thread. No need to open another page with the reply form in it.

This form will not show in threads that haven't been active for over 30 days though. We don't want to encourage people to respond in those.

Hope it helps. And let me know if you notice weirdness.

Weirdness: It also shows up on "Moved:" threads, allowing people to reply to those. Example.

Oops. Sorted.

Does this quick reply box also show for new members? If so, does it come with the same warnings about "no promotional links" as show on the full reply page? If not, can that be added, or can the quick reply box only be shown for members with more than 5/10 posts (wherever that warning stops showing)? Might cut down a bit on 'innocent' promotional posts.

Yeah, the quick reply form is the exact same code as for the main reply form. Just smaller :)
