Solved Reply button without quote

Post by Arrow on September 15th 2011, 4:57 pm

Hi guys first time making one of these so bare with me, I normally just struggle on until I get it right but this has me at a loss.

So what I am trying to do is create a reply button that appears on every post, much like the quote button. When the button is pressed it will reply to that users post so say one user is called bob and the other mike.

Bob's post

Hey guys.

loads of other users reply to the above post but Mike wants to directly reply so he presses the reply button.

@Bob: Hi.


In theory this is much like the quote button but it simply does not put in any text passed the username.

Any help on this would be great!

I am using phpBB2 for my forum and would like the button to appear on the same line as Quote.

Thanks again

Hi and thanks for replying

I don't know if I never explained what I am looking for to the right degree.

This is not a reply button but is, It is normally called an at reply button or @reply

You find them on a post made by a user and when you press it a PM is sent to them and in the reply box you will have something like this

@Username

The idea behind the button is that if a thread is really busy with chat or you log off you can pick up a chat where it left off. Now the quote system on Forumotion kinda works in the same when when you press quote, it will add the username before the text. What I am trying to do is make a button or some thing that will allow the same thing in my forum.

Quote would work a lot better for this.

@ you can just enter that yourself.

I know but this was to make life easier for my users, some of them have asked about it, in order for them to do what they wanted, they would have to quote, then remove the text included in the quote and just keep the username and does not meet what they are looking for.

But if it's not possible then it's not the biggest issue in the world.

No worries then, just thought I would ask.
