I was thinking that maybe this would be made into a AJAX feature, theres a mod for it but i think having this work without a reload would be a great addition as 99% of my posts is done via the fast replay box. It'd make a nice optional feature :).
Probibly won't be done till 3.0 they are still tryign to understnad the AJAX coding
Personally I don't think it's needed - with the page refresh also shows any posts since you refreshed the page.
Well if you do I hope it will be something you can turn off and on as I hate ajax on the fast reply. One of the many reasons I picked IP.Board over Vbulletin.
:lol: Trust me, Matt and I understand it. ;)There's just no point in doing the fast reply like this - it's prone to failure. If someone posts before you it could cause posts not to be returned to the screen. Or if a couple posts are saved and you should be sent to page 2, how is that handled? All posts on the screen wiped out? I'd think that would confuse people.At the end of the day, there just isn't a valid enough need for AJAX in the quick reply area.

valid points bfarber and i guess it does cause issues, not sure if the current mod for 2.1 relises and gets round these problems or not.

Ajax is making the web lazy. I could see the need for it back when we all had dial-up but now most have cable/DS or other means of highspeed Internet so unless you going to do some sort of full blow ajax application, all these little ajax things are just there and really don't have much of need other then one own.
well i agree but with huge forums with tens of thousands of members it does make a difference, i'm not a fan of ajax everywhere like another forum software we'll leave unamed for now :P but key placed ones do have advantages.
I agree they do, on small forums with low traffic a fast reply ajax thing may just be one of those cool things to look at but when we talk about big and active boards with 100s of people on at a time, it could really create a problem.
I don't think we need an ajax fast reply, there's nothing wrong with the current one, to be honest, I prefer it over any other. I see ajax as being used for the more "cool!" factor, and it does look very cool IMO. I expect it's friendly bandwidth wise too.
I don't care about the AJAX or "gee wiz" factor, although I would like some of the formatting controls in the fast reply. That can be done with a mod though, so no biggie.
Vbulletin can do it, why can't you guys???
They can't because they focus on what there customers are looking for. If you think it looks like a toy, um. :/ No comment.Now answer my QUESTION. Thanks.
I don't think anyone is going to answer your question with your current attitude.
Or utilizes this super, crazy, amazing feature!Aw, logout is different now. :(
I say we all just POST via Mr Clean through an RSS REST interface synched through LDAP and any other acronym you can think of. Then it'll be all 2.0ish and dandy.
Sorry everybody I am just a having money problem at the moment, don't mind me i justa stressed. Sorry. It good software i just hear from friend about vbulletin at factory.
I would like to see the new RTE as an on/off option in fast reply. I also want to see Fast reply expanded to something like 90% cell width. I never liked that tiny little box. "Quick Edit" should also have optional RTE.
vbulletin's basically does ajax if it is added to the same page, but regular if it is destined for a new page.
