Not Supported Template Edits Re-usable Code Translations  

It's a simple enhancements how quote BBcode shows itself.

In case that there's author's name and postid of quoted post, whole text (phrase plus authors name) becomes link, not just small image at the end of text. Many users don't know that this small image is actually link to original post, but with this, they maybe start use it more often.

Example is here:

Attachment 150331

On my site links in posts are red at the moment, so it's obvious what's a link, and what isn't. In code I left both image (first for quoting and second image that originally is a link to original post)

To achieve this, you first need to find template bbcode_quote

Then you need to find this code:


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

and replace it with this code:


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

If you want, you could remove one or both images.

If you apply it, because posts are cached, only new posts will reflect this change immediately. So, you need to post new post with some quoted text with authors name and postid to see how it looks like on your site.

If they didn't changed html, of course. This is just change in links' scope, nothing else. Even with a bit different html, you can change links' scope easily.

it does - though I think it might be better to click the link to trigger to the member profile page or start a PM to the member... just a thought

I can see someone saying that the link "doesn't work" on my site

Well, I think you missed what's discussed here. This is for quotes, so you want link to original post. There, after you follow link to original post you can access user's profile, send PM, or whatever you want.

I know exactly what was/is being discussed here. I was only giving something that I believe would be more useful for my site along with answering kaoss's question about working on 4.2.5

This is simple template modification, to change links' scope. But, for adding other links, you'll need to have some modification (i.e. much more coding, accessing database to know who original author is, as in quote it is only textual info, without real link to user's ID).

yes - no disagreement

If/when I make any adjustments, I'll pass it by you first to ensure you are good with me posting any updates

There's no need, I tagged it reusable, anyone can make changes as they like them. So, go ahead, do whatever you want.
