Let's give this board a try!
This mod has been created following an idea by Groovystar
From time to time it happens that a post in a topic can be the starting point of a new discussion, but people are too lazy to just quote it and copy the text to a new topic, so this mods adds a new button "quote to new topic" that allows to start a brand new topic with the content of a quote. In the resulting posting page there is also a dropdown that allows to select in which board the new topic should be posted.
But that's not all, of course!
Another useful thing in that case is to keep track of both where the topic started and which topics have been generated from a particular post, so the mod adds:
1) to the new topic, a button (next to "reply" etc.) pointing to the original post,
2) to the post that has been quoted to a new topic, a link to every new topic started from there.
As far as I remember that's all (I wrote it a while ago and...well, my memory is not that good
There is also a github repo available:https://github.com/emanuele45/Quote-to-new-topic
ETA: prefixes and naming are as usual not particularly consistent because I change my mind on the name of my mods several times a minute
