Quick Reply Box
Mod Version: 1.00, by Chen (Member) Chen is offline
Developer Last Online: Mar 2009 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.3.x Rating: (24 votes - 4.96 average) Installs: 1206
Released: 29 Jan 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 55
Not Supported  

Here's an easy one, it barely took 4 minutes to do. :china:
This hack will add a quick replying box at the bottom of all threads, only if the user has permission to reply, so when you need to reply to something real quickly you don't need to click the Post Reply button and wait for the page to load.

Instructions are in the attached .txt file, and if you want a demo... just look below.

NOTE: For the vB 2.3.2 version please see this post.

Extras:
  • If you want users who have the Use Email Notification option ON, to automatically subscribe to threads they reply to with this hack, see this post.
  • If you want to add an option for each user to turn this feature on and off, please see this post.
  • If you want smilies in your quick reply box please see this post.

Sorry, I didn't know this already exists.
Still mine only shows up for users that can reply to the thread, not to all users.

How about throwing a switch in the User CP so the user can toggle it on/off?

Very cool, Chen!

I'm planning to install it with a small variation: as I don't like that textbox at the end of the thread, I'll put a button or a link near the existing [Post Reply], something like [Quick Reply], and will open a javascript page with the textbox as you proposed.

What do you think about ?

Thanks a lot for sharing your work.

P.S.: what about closed threads ? Are they managed ?
Thnx

Thanks. leased:

Mark - I don't really think that's necessary.

Jawelin - That would pretty much ruin the whole idea of a quick reply box, because if you open it in a new window you have to load all the global, sessions, etc. stuff just like on the regular new reply, so I don't think it would be much faster, if at all.

Well since it's running here and this forum is running 2.2.1, the answer would be yes!

if (!$getperms['canviewothers'] and $thread...
this code appears at 2 places. the first one is at line ~55 and the 2. one at 230. after which one must i add the changes to it?
