Quick Reply Feature Added

Post by Farhan Ahmed » August 17th, 2013, 8:15 pm

There is feature in phpbb forums called quick reply.

In normal reply mode which we are used to, we click "Reply" and a new page is opened with full toolbars, where we can write/format our replies.

In quick reply mode, in all thread at the left bottom a new feature is available. It is a space where we can compose quick message instead of going to new page.
The benefits are swiftness of replying, whereas drawbacks are that full tool bar is not available and only text can be entered, secondly "quote" feature is also not available.

I am enabling this quick reply feature on trial basis. Lets see if this benefits members in quickly replying :-) and saving time. Thereby more participation.
However as i am not sure, if this feature can be a source of any misuse, i am terming this enabling as Trial. If the feedback is positive by members and we do not see any misuse. We will enable this feature for permanent basis.

It is also important to note that "reply" button and "quote" button will be there also for normal replying as we are use to. So now you have 3 ways to respond to a thread.
Happy Replying

I am also attaching an image of this new feature.

Your Input is valuable.

Its good to know that its liked. Secondly as i ascertain the replies through this features are also posted quickly so if a thread is actively replied by some members at a given time it would be much swifter.

Secondly if you click the quick reply again in the space below multiple text boxes can be opened.
