    Automatic Quoting

    I looked but couldn't find if this had been mentioned. I tried searching but the search is apparently down for the moment.

    Is there anyway to make the automatic quoting when replying an option? I really don't feel the need to quote someone every time I go to reply to something.

    Other than that, I haven't found anything else that bothers me. I won't try to tell you how to run your board like some, since I know I'm only a guest here. I wouldn't walk into someone's home and tell them how to live either.

    Hmm, I don't think you have to quote anyone to reply ... either quick reply or advanced. It's only optional. I did a quick reply on this post and didn't have to quote anything. I do recall this being required in earlier versions of vB 3, but apparently not Beta 1?

    At the moment the button seems to act as a quote button. I think the idea is that this is a quote button and that the Quick Reply box is used to reply. Hence my request for reply buttons : http://sitepointforums.com/showthrea...&postid=692598

    Have fun...

    Oh, I see. Well, it does make sense, in a way. You are technically replying to that individual post.

    Yep. You're replying to a post so threaded mode works properly

    LOL - Actually (as seanf said) it makes a lot of sense if your in threaded mode, but not, if like me, you don't like threaded mode and have reverted to boring old flat mode

    if you just want to reply without quoting someone, use the quick reply or use the "Go Advanced" button on the bottom of the QR box to take you to the familiar replythread page.
