Automatic Post Title when posting a reply.

Solved Automatic Post Title when posting a reply.

Post by lollipoppet on April 29th 2013, 3:27 am

Is there anyway that when a member hits the "post reply" button the title of the post is automatically placed in the Post title blank area?
Im worried members will think they need to put in a title when i would like the title to already be there once someone has created a new thread? blackeye

I dont get it sorry? if someone starts a thread and they hit reply to answer why would we need to change the title? I would like the title to slip straight into that space as an automatic thing so they just reply in the comment box without replying?

wouldnt they just start another thread though? im confused?
I go on another forum (***) and they set theres up like that which I would like to do the same way?
When you hit reply to someone else's thread it automatically has there title not a blank space? am I making sense?

When you click on New Topic.
Title of the topic:


When you click on Post Reply
Post Title:

You cannot leave title of the topic empty. But, if you leave Post Title empty, it takes up the Title of the Topic.

Are you able to understand the difference between both of them ?

Yes I do. Sorry I am use to being on forums but not doing my own? Im sorry im green. I am glad though I have got one up and running with members its just tweeking it.

Yes its the Post title Im talking about. On the other forum I go on , there Post Title automatically slots in there so members just type in the comment box.
My forum ( weloveblythe.com.au) doesnt take up the Post Title at the moment it always shows a white blank space. Have I clicked something off the settings so it does this?

So are you saying the Post Title is suppose to be blank when you do reply to posts?

Hello,

You can post a screenshot of it Wink Also, make sure that it's a Forumotion forum.
on Forumotion its supposed to work this way.

The other forum you saw might not be a Forumotion forum so it's showing a different system. Wink

So are you saying the Post Title is suppose to be blank when you do reply to posts?
Yes it is. Wink But it will take the title of the topic if you leave it blank. Wink

I just looked at the site and its run NOT by forumotion??
its powered by a site called PhPbb... so no use doing a screen shot as I dont think it will make a difference.
