Not Supported  

Folks are hitting the Quote button rather than Post Reply when answering the last post in a thread.

We default to Linear Oldest First so it gets rather stale and wasteful to see all the duplicate postings one after the other. We do not use Quick reply.

Find in postbit template:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

Replace with:

Take notice that this is for default setting "Linear - Oldest First".

This has been a nuisance. Glad finally someone came up with this.

My tag edits were not working with all of my other postbit mods, so here it is one more time in tested form, my inserts in red. Looks the same to me, but cleaner...

Apparently I was OK in the first place, but now we are sure.

This has bugged me too. Unfortunately it apparently isn't working for me. I replaced the code but am still able to quote the last message in a thread.

All's not gold that glitters.

I was noticing some quoted posts by one individual at the bottom of a thread.

Turns out that he is viewing threads "Linear - Newest First".

My default setting is "Linear - Oldest First".

I just wanted you to know. Back to the drawing board.

A small problem. I've substituted reply_small. with reply.gif otherwise the reply button in the message was smaller that the others. Problem is that the reply button in the PM is larger than the other one. I mean, there's a way to differentiate between the reply button in PM and in the threads?

I'm noticing now that in one of my threads the post at the bottom of each page is keeping the reply button instead of displaying the quote.

you should also remove the multi-quote button as people now can click that on the last post, click reply and bypass the purpose.

Multi Quote is truned off on my forum. Great for computer savvy users, really bad for my users. They would multi-quote the contents of the entire thread into one post.

That's the deal, most of vB is aimed toward young computer geeks. Us old farts need to have forums too.

Edit: Included screen shot. It's working fine on my board. YMMV.
