I don't think it was meant as a feature request. When somebody asks "how can i add" something, they're either asking where in the UCP/MCP/ACP that can be done (a support question) or asking what code changes are required (a MOD or Style request). Given that it's pretty obvious that there's no such facility in the UCP/MCP/ACP, I felt that the request would be better placed in another forum.GoremanX wrote:I think it was meant as a feature request by the OP, and all subsequent replies just latched onto this thread since this is the first Google result for "phpbb cancel button"Pony99CA wrote:However, there is obviously no Cancel button in phpBB now, so I'm confused as to why this topic wasn't posted in the MODs or Style forums. It's clearly not a support topic.
Somebody could probably get their source code and reverse engineer it. It would obviously be easier the fewer MODs they have, but it could be done. Whether that would be easier than coming up with a MOD from scratch is another issue.GoremanX wrote:As I mentioned above, forum.joomla.org uses phpBB3 and they have a Cancel button which works perfectly. It sends the user back to the topic/page he/she was viewing before he/she ever clicked the "Edit" or "New Topic" or "Post Reply" buttons. But when I asked about it, no-one had any clue when or how it got implemented
