Ticket #300 (fixed enhancement)

Enable the "quick reply area" for the Guests too

  • Created: 2011-02-20 12:59:11
  • Reported by: Jack
  • Assigned to: quy
  • Milestone: 1.4.5
  • Component: usability
  • Priority: low

Currently, the "quick reply area" appears only to the registred users.

Considering that the Guests (if enabled) can post anyway just by clicking on "reply", I guess it would be better to give them access to all the forum functionalities.

Maybe a new option (enable/disable quick post for guests) would be useful?

No need to patch CSS on Air-based styles
No need to patch CSS on Oxygen-based styles

I forgot to add the Name and E-mail to $required_fields.

Does it work with Technetium? wink

quy 2011-02-22 16:27:40

Yes. Quick Post looks the same as in Post Reply minus Options.

If you are logged, there is no need to display "Message (Required)".

It could be easily done by changing



                        <label class="required"><strong><?php echo $lang_common['Message'] ?> <span><?php echo $lang_common['Required'] ?></span></strong><br />



                        echo '<label class="required"><strong>'.$lang_common['Message'].'<span> '.$lang_common['Required'].'</span></strong><br />';


Then, I think displaying help text on the left side is ugly, it looks better on the bottom.

Perfect wink

I think the old way was nice, as the textarea was about as wide as the post would then be. It made sense.

But then, I don't really care.
