Does anyone still use this?

by igorw » Mon Jan 24, 2011 10:01 pm

Since phpBB 3.0.6 this MOD is pretty much obsolete. Does anyone still use it? Do you see any value in keeping it alive?

If so, please reply to this topic and/or send me a PM. If nobody is interested I will let it die.

Thanks! :)

I am. I just installed this tonight. I have a 3.0.5 proSilver based style that has not been updated. I like the style too much to leav it behind (my forums are actually 3.0.7-PL1). I have it working at the moment, but I have a few problems. I'm not seeing any BB code buttons or smilies and the button for the Quick Reply is missing. All I see is text. The javascript to open it is working and I can type in the QR box and post. I have a lot of mods on my board, but right now it's 2 am am I'm going to sleep. I'll take another crack at it in the morning.

At least something is working. I had another QR MOD that broke my editor.js file preventing me from using the BB codes.

EDIT: Got it. Button shows due to a CSS modification in colours.css. I have the button at the top and bottom of the topic and an anchor from the top to bottom and most importantly Advanced BBCode Box 3 is integrated in to the QR box (per instructions I found on the author's site).

All working. Now my phpbb 3.0.5 style has Quick Reply.

I use this on all of my phpbb sites.

It would be a shame to see it discontinued, but that is my point of view anyways. I like it a lot more than the one that comes with phpbb. I thought this one should have been the one they had chosen for quick reply. Its light, easy, simple, and instant. The only other thing I could ever see it needing is an option that lets you click "Quick reply to this post" that just takes you down to the bottom of the page - with that post quoted.

That's about it.

Otherwise? It's perfect and has been perfect for me since it came out. I used it back in the old days when it was brand new :3

I use it too! Can I ask how to actually show the button!

Yes I know it defeats the purpose but would like users to be able to see it. I have the coresponding icon for ca black.

The reason I still use this mod is because the position of the button (beside the actual Reply button) and it has a more stylized button than the one that cames with phpbb3.0.9

I think that a good replacement for this mod could be instructions on how to arrange the phpbb quick reply button to show in the same place as evil quick reply button with the same appearance.

Kind regards,

I would really like to see an update of this mod. It's the best quick reply in my opinion simply because of how it is displayed. The quick reply button next to the post reply one is not only easy to use but is aesthetically pleasing as well. I tried to modify Prime Quick Reply to display like this but I'm very new to coding so my attempt was a failure.
