Quote with link to quoted post

Post by Crizzo » Wed Jul 17, 2013 5:16 pm

Actually you quote a post partially or complete and the content will be wrapped in "quote"-tags and the name of the author will be written down.

Sometimes it is useful in discussions, to find the quoted post. Now you have to scroll up and/or go a page backwards. Not that exciting. :oops:

Something like:

Code: Select all

[quote="Nickname, post-id"]
would be useful.

Then there will be the name and then behind a small icon, like an arrow or something which is a link and will jump to: viewtopic.php?p=post-id#ppost_id

Would be a short change, which will give the user a small comfort function.

  1. Post ID should be optional, aswell as username already is.
  2. In the proposed format it will collide with usernames (think of a name like 3, 14) - far better formats would be these:

    Code: Select all

    [quote][/quote]             = No reference
    [quote="name"][/quote]      = Freely chosable name
    [quote="name",1337][/quote] = Freely chosable name and post ID
    [quote=404][/quote]         = Reference to user ID
    [quote=404,1337][/quote]    = Reference to user ID and post ID
  3. I wonder how to distinguish between quoting a post in a PM and quoting a PM in a post.

@AmigoJack
Doesn't my RFC show a possible solution that solves that?

Your syntax is by far better and more versatile. Though I forecast recurring "idea" topics after its implementation, simply because real people don't know all possibilities and/or think it's too complicated. It's like HTML: very logical, yet a mystery to the masses.

That's something I miss in phpBB3 and I've seen such a feature in other forum software like IP.Board, vBulletin etc to mention a few.

Later on I found out that this feature can you actually do right now, of course you need to do it manually like my post. Just take a look on the quoted post and click on the posters link. ;)

If that kind of feature was included in the phpBB code then it will save a lot time when someone is reading the post and want to back to the actual post just to read it again in a previous thread page.


I would also like to comment something about the idea that AmigoJack has and I know that IP.Board already have that kind of feature in their current forum software, but I think it could cause unnecessary issues by doing that.

Because what will happen when someone decided to leave the forum or a member was banned and the posts for that member aren't deleted. A feature like this "Quote with a link to quoted post" idea could be broken and could sometimes be hard to fix.

Good idea !

Need in minimum this:

Code: Select all

     [quote][/quote]             = No reference
    [quote="name"][/quote]      = Freely chosable name
    [quote="name",1337][/quote] = Freely chosable name and post ID
+1

Sorry my bad english !

Maybe make it extendable?

Separate optional parameters with comma and use field name, allowing extensions to add more stuff:

Code: Select all

[quote="Some User, post: 193189, member: 8756"]

Why one long string which makes it difficult to impossible to determine where a username ends and commas start? Why not my proposal or those of the RFC(s)?

Why not like this? Using a quote on my board as an example.

Has the date, user, and link to post.
