    Neato! Seems that Parker's having an experimental Easter. I dig the quick reply option!
    You guys just never stop innovating. [​IMG]
    And yes, surfing around on Internet message boards is what all Jews do on Easter. [​IMG]

    I noticed the same thing, Scott. Nice...but, I take it that it won't have the quote or bold or spoiler quick links along with it? Either way, it's a nice feature and one I'll have to try out.

    I'm having no problem with the tags!
    .
    Mainly because I never use those buttons anyway. Oh wait, I do use them for URLs sometimes...

    You can use any of the vB codes you just have to remember what they are. [​IMG]

    Necessary? No but some might find them useful if they can't remember the code.

    I also added the option to turn off the Quick Reply in the User Control Panel > Edit Options at the bottom of the page.

    I think the feature is nice, but I can waste 1 second of my life clicking on "Post Reply." [​IMG]

    Like I said you can turn this off in the Edit Options section of the User Control Panel. Also, I have set it up so you can turn off the vB code toolbar if you don't want to see it.

    Parker, I love it, a very nice idea, good work.[​IMG]
    Now ofcourse I'll get tempted to reply more often than I used to, simply because I see that nice enticing empty box waiting for me to put something in it.
    No seriously, great idea![​IMG]

    How come my signature didn't appear when I used the "Quick Reply" for my reply above?
    EDIT: I see. The Quick Reply box has no "Options" field. Parker, can the Options field be added? Is that possible?

    Fair enough not to include sigs. I always try to make sure only my first post in a thread has signature anyway.

    On some boards [ addsig ] works without the spaces. I'll try that but I bet it doesn't. There's probably an alternative for this one:

    Very good idea! Kudo's. I notice a few other forums are using that method now. Very handy. I have high speed dsl but I imagine those with dial-up connections love that feature. Saves time. Time saved is good [​IMG]

    I will add this as an automatic thing. If you have your signature checked to be put in automatically on a normal basis then it will automatically put it in if not it will not.

    I have set this up so that if you have a signature file it will automatically be included when you use the quick reply. If you do not have a signature file nothing will be posted.
