Quick Reply Box mod
Mar 14th, 2008 at 1:25am
 
Just installed the "Quick-Reply Box mod":

http://www.boardmod.org/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=newsy22;action=display;num=1197002973

This mod allows user to post quickly a reply or post .. without having to launch a separate Post/Reply page. Hence: "Quick".

Okay, it seems to work as advertised, but does not support text-size and box-size changes that are available by clicking the "Reply" button.

It's not available to guests either, which makes sense, since "guests" are not allowed to post here. (A default setting I can over-ride, but choose not to.)

I can make this go away by clicking a single button .. if you decide you don't like it. You can still click the standard/regular "Post/Reply" buttons if you want to .. just like always. The only negative I can see is that this will add to page load times .. tho it shouldn't make much of a difference (and none to guests).

There is also a Quick quote mod I'm trying to install, but having a problem.

Actually I installed the
Quick-Reply
mod cuz I *really* want the
Quick-quote
mod, and the
Quick-Reply
mod is REQUIRED to be installed first, in order for the
Quick-quote
mod to work.

Okay, I got the Quick-quote mod installed. (Easy fix.) Pretty cool. You simply copy the exact text you wanna quote and click the Quick-quote link, and the quote automatically appears in your message. Very cool (simple, easy-to-use).

Quick-quote only works with the Quick Reply Box. See here for details:

Anybody using the Quick-Reply box, and/or the Quick-quote feature?

Thoughts? Useful? Useless?

I've been playing with it on and off--it's new--I'm so used to doing it the other way that I forget to hit those other options!

I did loose my text size font settings and reply box size when I hit *Preview*--just so you know!

Also, just noticed...when you do a *Preview* now, you don't loose the previous responses down below the reply box area--must have been part of the update you installed--I've always disliked loosing access to those responses after a *preview*!

That was using the *Preview* at the bottom of the *Quick Reply Box*--just did it again--and lost the settings!

Now, going back to the regular *Reply* function--text size and reply box sizes are back to *default*--i.e. small  Angry !

i see. the two don't seem to play well together. either one or the other.
seems like a bug. maybe i'll submit it. wonder if they can fix.

it's only the preview in quick-reply that wipes out settings in regular reply, right? not post.

So using the Quick-Port/Reply box/feature AT ALL wipes out settings in regular Post/Reply box (font-size, box-size).

I submitted bug report:

http://www.boardmod.org/yabb/YaBB.pl?board=newsy22;action=display;num=1197002973...

Not sure how motivated they will be to fix, since it only occurs if you install and use a MOD, but maybe they can patch.

Rad, I think I noticed a small anomaly with the quick quote.

On a thread which I had already marked as wanting notification of replies, I used the quick quote to reply.

After replying it appeared that the quick-quote mod UN-checked notification of replies.  (I had to recheck it.)

Can you verify if this is happening to you?
