maybe you could make it so that when quick reply is used, the post would read "re: all" or "re: quick reply." that would curb the confusion.

I like that... as a default if the user didn't hit the quick reply button...

I disagree, the confusion (such as it is) comes from it not always being clear who the poster is refering to. How would still not knowing who he or she is refering to help to clear it up?


If I was the grand poo-bah, I'd either go with....
1. Bag it, it sucks.
or
2. Why not remove the quick reply box (which I am typing in now) from the bottom of the page and put it in a popout window created when the user clicks 'quick reply'? <<< credit to Seuss. (which would NOT require a new browser window, just a small pop up along the lines of the spell check window)



Now, I understand someone worked hard on this feature and it would work just fine were not most too lazy or stupid to merely put the name of the person they are replying to in the post. The fact remains most do not.

Ahhh... I feel better... here is a nice, simple solution that I coded for the powers that be to consider...


Add the following javascript:

[pre]

var quickReplyMessage=-1

function validQuickReply()
{
if (quickReplyMessage==-1)
{

alert("You must specify the message you wish to respond to by clicking on a Quick Reply link before you can

submit this message.");
return(false);
}
else
return(true);
}

function quickreply(id) {
if (!document.getElementById) {
alert("This function doesn't support your browser. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and fill in

the Quick Reply box, or use the normal Reply function");
} else if (navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf("opera") != -1) {
alert("This function doesn't support your browser. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and fill in

the Quick Reply box, or use the normal Reply function");
} else {
obj = document.replier;
obj.Parent.value = document.getElementById('number' + id).innerHTML;
subject = document.getElementById('subject' + id).innerHTML;
if (!pattern.test(subject)) {
subject = 'Re: ' + subject;
}
obj.Subject.value = subject;
insertAtCaret(obj.Body, ' ');
obj.Body.focus();
quickReplyMessage=id;
}
}

[/pre]

(The last function already exists, I just added the last line to set the quickReplyMessage tot he passed message id)

And then finally, add the following to the continue/submit buttons:

[pre]
type="submit" name="textcont" value="Continue" class="buttons" onClick="return validQuickReply()"/>

[/pre]

Hmmm... I guess pre tags don't work... oh well, you can get the idea from what went through...

This will cause an error message to pop up if somebody tries to submit a 'quick reply' without first clicking on a quick reply link to specify the message that the quick reply is for.

While that's all Greek to me, I applaud you for taking the time.

While that would work, it'd be a painful transition.  :lol:

While the thought of the confusion which would follow amuses the twisted side of me (don't be shocked, I know I hide it well), I think the best idea is the small pop out box put forth by Seuss.

Well, that's why I said it's all Greek to me.

So let's just get rid of it then.

I'm with you Luv! It blows, but not as bad as the lack of personal e-mail notification to just your own posts!

Hehehe... just had to rub that one in again :smile:

I view in flat mode. What I'm talking about, is that it looks like I'm replying to matts, when in fact I'm responding to Brainfarmer. This is why I never use Quick Reply (aside from this one time)...
