I thank you for understanding. You think rationally. Definitely I asked for extension which will enable the change the title of the main topic and also all replies independently what is the title of reply. And what if the topic has a 10 page and on one page is 15 posts and in half they are a stupid titles of replies or instead of the text is dot, then the manually editing these posts is time-consuming and tiring.
OK. I understood what you mean. Then I would like to describe the available features more clearly. Together with Smart Subjects extension these features can let you achieve the requested result.
Also please note that mentioned features do not require quick reply to be enabled in any forum.
All right, thanks for explain.
Nope. It's not.
He asked for that ^ To change the topic title and all replies
. Not that I'm bothered, just pointing it out as this seems to be turning into a "Why do you want to do that" kind of topic when really it's up to him what he wants. Not everybody has the same needs...
Definitely you understood the best of everyone what I mean when I wrote the topic with request of extension.
VSE wrote:Anyway, I am considering adding a tick-box to the "options" panel when editing a post, available only to the admin, like "Overwrite all reply subjects" or something. So that way only an admin can in fact rewrite all the replies to be Re: the original post title. And the admin would not necessarily need to change the title too, they would just tick that box and whatever the title is, will be applied to all the Re: reply titles. Would that satisfy what hrx is after?
If you add something like that I'll check if it's what I mean about.
Lol, I see the same thing being asked for there too...I think your idea of the checkbox is a great solution that should make this a very usable and complete extension.
That will be clear, first I wrote the request of creating such a extension here on forum, when nobody answer then I made a topic on Area51 forum with question if developers phpBB could someday enter such a function into phpBB 3.1.x, thanks to which it would be possible to change the title of the main topic and all titles of the replies.
