Do you think Fast Reply in vB 3 Gamma is too complex?

    Sounds like you are using older Javascript files and haven't performed a hard refresh (CTRL-F5 in most Windows Browsers) to flush the old obsolete files out of your cache.

      Okay, explain the difference in speed associated with the two ways of getting to the Quick Reply Box...

      In the way it is setup here, you click on the quick reply icon and the box is focused and your browser automatically scrolls to it.

      With out the click, you have to manually scroll down to the box and click in it to type.

      However, since this is a Admin Option, you can set it up any way you like on your forum. The first option is actually quicker and less work for the users, especially if you are like me and display 50 posts on a page.

        May I suggest an Admin CP option to make the Quick Reply a normal text box with NO WYSIWYG and NO Javscript even though the normal reply can be WYSIWYG.

        This will make showthread load up a LOT faster - more like in vB2 with the Quick Reply hack.

            Put this in your phpinclude_start template:
            PHP Code:
            if (THIS_SCRIPT == 'showthread')
            {
            $vboptions['allowvbcodebuttons'] = 0;

              I think it's easy enough to use. If you want to quickly reply to someones post you click the button. If you want to reply to the thread in general chances are you're already at the end of the page. All you need to do then is click the last quick reply icon to enable the box. What's so hard about that?

                Also, I just expanded the Yes/No option for Quick Reply enabled to be No/Yes Standard/Yes Enhanced/Yes WYSIWYG so you can now pick what control box you want for Quick Reply to resolve the showthread page rendering time when WYSIWYG is enabled.

                    It would be nice to have a button next to the text box to activate it instead of having to click on the icon on the last post.

                      Having a button next to it would defeat the whole purpose of it. The button is to get you to click for the post you are replying to, so that threaded mode is more orderly.

                        You can accomplish the same thing just by setting Require Click for Quick Reply to 'No' in the Admin CP.

                          Again that breaks threaded mode which is on by default, threaded mode is here to stay like it or not.

                          Now that I think about it, if you where replying to a thread you should be reading a post in the thread, is it really that hard to press a button to activate it?

                          I find a bit of humor in all of this, ive been using a 'quick quote' feture on ubb boards for some time, it was requested alot at vBulletin.org and finnaly got done. This is nearly the same thing, and gives you the same function. Yet everyone hates it because you are forced to click it

                            That's work well! Thanks.

                            The only problem is that it doesn't actually speed up the loading of pages - in a vB2 forum I'm able to open up new windows for different threads. In vB3, even with the WYSIWYG switched OFF I just realize, opening a new window, which requires a reloading of all elements, causes showthread to take twice as long to load - even with WYSIWYG off for Quick Reply... mmm... what else could be slowing it down?

                                I understand that point, but if I am at the end of the thread and want to add my .02 cents, the button would be nice.
