Disable Quote button in user permissions

Post by Boone24 » Mon Mar 08, 2010 1:21 pm

I would like to request a modification to disable Quotes in user permissions. I'm sure even here you have certain users that refuse to use the reply button and always use quote instead, which leads to a unreadable thread in short order.

I think removing the quote button from your style(s) would achieve the effect you're looking for and would be much easier to do.

E.g. in styles/prosilver/template/viewtopic_body.html find the line containing {L_REPLY_WITH_QUOTE} and delete that line.

Removing quote is a option, but if we were able to remove the quote option on a per user basis for users that abuse it by using the quote button in place of the reply button for every reply.

Thank you for the info. I will remove it for now, but I still think the option would be a nice addition.
