I have created a small patch that adds a "quick reply" option at the bottom of threads. It works basically the same as the spoiler tag in that you have to click a link to make the reply box show up. Hopefully this can be touched up a bit and included by default.

Oops. I forgot to mention that it replies to the last post in the thread and automatically builds a subject based on the last posts subject. For example, if the subject of the last post in the thread is "A new subject" then the quick reply form will use the subject "Re: A new subject". If the subject of the last post is "Re: A new subject" then the quick reply form will use "Re: A new subject". I did not bother sifting through the source code to figure out what MSG to use for "Re:" so it is hardcoded in English. (One of those touch ups that it needs.)

I think you need to add some panels like smiles and format.

That is what the full reply form is for. If you know the fudcode for such things then you can just type them in. If you want to be able to click on them then you need to use the full reply form. The quick reply is for just that -- quickly replying to a thread without having to load a new page.

I use the feature quite a bit on a board that uses Invision Powerboard and felt that FUDforum could use it. If it isn't included in the next release I will update my hack for that release. Hell, I might even make it prettier (no extra functionality though).

Okay, here is the patch for FUDforum 2.6.10. I am not very good at creating patch files so you may have to manually patch the files. The patch file was created by copying the two modified files to a temporary directory, putting the original files in an "originals" directory within that temporary directory, and running `diff -C1 originals . > quick_reply.patch`. *shrug* It isn't much of a patch so you shouldn't have too much problem with it.

Also, you may want to add the following style definition to your forum.css:
#quickReply textarea {
        border: 1px solid black;
        color: black;
        background-color: #ff9;
}


I would make a graphical button just like the "Post Reply" button but I don't know what font the xcf files use nor how to make the button work for all languages. In fact, when I open the xcf and try to edit the text layer The Gimp says that it is invalid UTF-8 text.

Here is the version for 2.6.12. I did not release one for 2.6.11 because the release was so small that I didn't bother to update my own forum to 2.6.11.

There is a slight change in this version. I have included a graphic button like the "Post Reply" button. This graphic needs to go in your default theme image root directory. The graphic is in english and the font is a little off; I do not speak any other languages and I don't know what font is being used in all of the other graphics. I have also included my xcf for the new graphic so if someone can fix these issues then please feel free to do so.

The patch was created exactly as the previous patch was. If you were able to successfully apply the previous patch then you shouldn't have any issues with this one.

Enjoy.

I just found a small bug in this patch. If you use the quick reply function then your signature is not attached to the message. I will fix this in the next release. The next release, like always, will come after the next version of FUDforum.

Does this QuickReply patch work in FUDforum 2.7.3RC2? And will it work if the FUDforum version is upgraded.

Ilia, a kind and important request from our users side: Can you kindly integrate this QuickReply box feature in the forum itself. It is being used extensively nowadays in some many forum softwares and save a lot of time while replying in many threads through the web

Can you please give us the full new msg.php.t for the latest fudversion 2.7.3RC2 to upload with the patch as I don't know how to run the path through a command line utility? Or please explain how to run? Is it through shell command line? If you can include the signature, it would be the best also. Thanks.

Did you not read my latest post to this thread? I don't have the time right now to update this. Also, I wouldn't update it for an RC release if I did have the time. I said, much earlier in the thread, that this would only be updated for final releases.

Sorry, I am just too busy right now to work on this patch.

That code always adds signature even if it's disabled. You should make a check on user options. I don't know what's signature's option code.

{VAR: sig} perhaps, not all into that, always enabled works fine with me, if they don't want to post signatures, they can remove their sig Razz Only got like 700ish users and they are all gamers, so they aren't all that picky!

Read message numbers 22797 and 23586 in this thread. They tell you exactly how to apply the patch and where to put the image.

Also, because of classes, I haven't had time to update my version of the hack to work with the latest version. Maybe I will get to it during my lax summer semester, but I doubt it. No one on my board really used it. I like the feature, but if my users aren't going to use it then I don't have a lot of incentive to maintain it. In other words, this hack most likely doesn't work with the newest version of the forum software without modifications.

If there is general consensus we can include it with the next release. In preparation we need to get the phrase "Quick Reply" translated into as many supported languages as humanly possible. I also imagine that we need to have a setting so users and enable or disable this feature.

BTW: Here is a screenshot - http://cvs.prohost.org/index.php/Image:Quick_reply.jpg

Copy quick_reply.patch to your FUDdata/thm/default/tmpl/ directory an use the patch command to apply it:

$ patch -p0 <quick_reply.patch


This may also help: http://cvs.prohost.org/index.php/Applying_patches

I managed to surprise myself and get it working. I don't have shell access of anything so was unable to do that and I tried a few windows utils for diff/patching but none worked so I booted up my ubuntu distro and managed to do it in seconds on that

Well done! I've also updated the zip with some basic instructions (README file).

BTW: You may want to download SUN's vbox (virtualbox.org). It will allow you to boot Ubuntu in a window or vice versa.

Looking back on your instructions I seen they were a little bit different from what I done (I hadn't seen your reply at this time)

I simply done

$ patch msg.tmpl quick_reply.patch


Would that make a difference ?

No, it's my fault. I've messed up the first zip.

Anyway, this may help to get the patching done on Windows: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/patch.htm
