=Quick Quote for Quick Reply=


What does it do?
I was unsatisfied with the new multiquote addition to vBulletin and was wanting a truly quick and easy quoting method, primarily one that worked with Quick Reply since the others are quite workable.

So this is what I came up with. It's used simply by highlighting a post's text with your mouse. The highlighted text is transferred to Quick Reply as a formatted quote. To clear the highlighted text, click OUTSIDE the currently highlighted area or it'll add the quote again. So if you want to quote multiple posts (especially parts of multiple posts) instead of faffing around with quote or multiquote you just go down the page highlighting each bit of text you want to quote. Much better!

I wrote it for my own forum which unfortunately isn't open yet so you can't try before you buy, but you can get an idea from the screenshot.


Instructions
Upload quickquote.js to your forum's clientscript folder.

Go to AdminCP > Style Manager > Edit Templates and...
Open the SHOWTHREAD template:
FIND:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

ADD ABOVE:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.



Open the POSTBIT template:
FIND:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

REPLACE WITH:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That's it!


Notes:
- Does NOT work with the WYSIWYG quick reply editor. Same problem I had with another modification, I still can't for the life of me work out how to get text to transfer to it. Offers of a solution most welcome.

Are you using the WYSIWYG editor? It won't work with that, but it will work with the other types.

I think it's better to add a click-able link per post, on clicking that link the highlighted text will be quoted.

I agree, and you've got to get it working in a WYSIWYG. Then this would be a great hack to have. I constantly find myself having to highlight parts of a huge post or deleting large chunks to reply to what I'd like to discuss.

Instead of this:

REPLACE WITH:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.
Do something like this:

REPLACE WITH:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.
Untested, but that should work. The key point is changing onmouseup to onclick which will trigger the quote transfer when the item is clicked, instead of when you've raised your mouse button after highlighting.

I made it so that it will quote the selected text whenever I click the "quick reply" button:

I found this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

To this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

But indeed, if you could get it to work with WYIWYG editor, it would be awesome.
