"Fast Reply" button

Postby nealmac » Thu Jan 28, 2010 12:44 pm

On a lot of forums, when replying to a thread, you have the options of doing (like here) a standard reply, quoting someone. But some forums have a "fast reply" button available. Basically, when you click it, instead of opening a new page to type in your post, a little box pops up on the same page, enabling you to type your post in there. It's a lot quicker for people with slow connections. This box is usually very simple, with little or no formatting options. The option to switch this feature on is usually located somewhere in the Admin control panel.

Any chance of us having this feature?

Thanks,

Neal.

Thanks Neal,

You're right! I'd forgot about a Fast Reply option- I usually use this myself on other forums. Let me check it out in the admin control panel. I'd be suprised if PHPBB can't do that.

Cheers,

Right,

I've just looked into this on the PHPBB Support Forums.

There is no Quick Reply feature built into the core PHPBB Code. Apparently the developers did not want the software to come across as "chat" software.

However, there are (apparently) some Quick / Fast Reply Mods (Modification Modules) available for PHPBB- So I'll do some more digging into what is available. If I install one, I need to know that it's robust won't corrupt the forum database in any way.

Cheers,
Ian

YES!!!! A "Quick Reply" function has now been added to each sub-forum. Many thanks for the suggestion. Apologies in the delay in adding this feature. I had to be satisfied that the modification to the forum software was robust and relaible.
