Much ado about Quick Reply

Post by Japorized on August 7th 2014, 2:00 pm

Hello,
This isn't really a problem but more of a discussion so that's why I decided to post it here.

I wonder if there's a way to draft quick replies, which I believe would be quite useful cause some of us just don't like getting into another page to write something long, and end up needing to draft it. I would personally copy and paste it in a Notepad or something similar but it would be interesting to know if there's a way.

Also, is there a way to automatically save your quick replies as you type, perhaps between a certain period of time. I think this can be helpful for people who had to attend to something that takes time in the midst of typing a long message, cause some forums do automatically log out users who are online but inactive.

Just interested to know.

Hello Japorized,

Please see this tuto :
http://help.forumotion.com/t132804-automatically-save-posts-in-progress

This will save your message as you type, to a cookie. If you clean your cookies the message you're writing will be erased. So, don't clean cookies until you're finished.

For drafts :
Administration Panel > General > Messages and Emails > Configuration

Activate drafts and save. Smile


The draft button should display when you preview your post.

Oh, I didn't notice that tut there. Great job on that. It's really useful.

As for the drafts, I know that it's in the posting page for replies and new topics. What about the drafting the quick reply itself?
