View Full Version : Quick reply, I love it!

I don't recall seeing comments relating to the quick reply feature, but I just gotta say that I LOVE IT! It makes "life" so much easier. :)

Before, it seemed to stick more often than not. Over the past few months, it's been great, except for one small personal failing on my part. A half dozen times, I've finished a post, and then clicked the "+ Reply to Thread" button. Which erases whatever was in the quick reply field, and positions the cursor at the start. I'm pretty sure that's what it was intended to do--frustrate me--since all it seems to do otherwise is position the cursor an inch below where you click. :)

In your experience of vBulletin, what is different about the quick reply setup from 3 to 4? You're just talking about not needing to go to "go advanced" or hitting reply under a specific post?

Just curious, because I haven't noticed anything different about it from how it was on vB3. Maybe I had my settings set up different though.

When your browser supports that Ajax JavaScript stuff and it's enabled, clicking the reply or reply with quote button at the bottom of each post opens a quickreply editor just below that post instead of going to a new page.
Basically the reply has become a quickreply.

Oh, right. Yes, that is a cool function. Mine does that both at work and at home, so I guess enabled is the default.

I must admit though, I used to go straight to the bottom of the page to the quick reply box down there, so (shockingly) I have nothing valuable to add here.

Thanks for the explanation though.
