Coucou,

another quick resource that may be useful for someone Razz

Introduction and Demo

The resource allows you to make the quoted author username clickable inside quotes. When you cite a previous post, the name of the author will become clickable!

From regular non-clickable quoted author

to clickable author name
Make quoted author name clickable in quotes Scree145

Disclaimer

In the past, Pinguino (French Administrator) pointed out that the option was not included in the Forumotion update because of technical reasons. Please note that if you have too many quotes in the page, the loading may be slow - but otherwise don't worry about using this script! Very Happy

You need to go towards Administration Control Panel (ACP)   Modules HTML & Javascript Javascript codes management and create a new code - upon verifying that Javascript codes management is enabled.

                  }
            });
        });
    })


CSS

There is no required CSS to be included, but the clickable quoted username can be customized with this class
Code:
.quote_mention_username

Hope you will enjoy :wouhou: :wouhou:

Hello,

Really ? One AJAX request per quote tag ?
Yes, there isn't, I think, any other way to achieve that. But imagine you display 50 posts per page, and each post on the page contains 2 quotes. Result : 100 AJAX requests affraid

Having this link can be very handy, of course, and we had it automatically on server side at a time, but it has been removed due to a too important server charge which was slowing down page loading. And this problem was on sever side, with PHP code and certainly only one single SQL request / loop to recover usernames links...
Your script do the same, but with separated individual AJAX request on server side, moreover AJAX requests that load a full HTML page and not only a single line of JSON data (because no choice, again)...

Thinking about time, client ressources and data needed to add these links, I'm not sure that this code have a very good cost/effect balance... Wink
I think it may consistently slow down topics pages...

Have a good day.

Coucou @chattigre

yeah, sadly I know Embarassed
I placed a disclaimer because of this, but I agree with you that it is not the best solution - so it needs to be used carefully

A possible "middle-way" could be to cache the username-userID retrieve, so that the "disaster" happens only once Embarassed

I agree with you also on the cost/effect balance - but it's upon the user's choice and decision huhohi huhohi
Of course, this resource will stay in the Community Coding and Analysis Zone, and will never turn into an official tutorial beu

but hey, here is the idea - maybe another user will get a better way to do it based on this idea Hello
