How can I disable Quick Reply
« on: February 13, 2020, 07:01:00 AM »
I'm having a hard time figuring out where to disable Quick Reply.  Where is this option?
Don't email me, PM me, IM me, contact me, look at me, breath on me, or even attempt to think about thinking of contacting me.  If you do, I will send you to the correct forum to post, where I will promptly tell you that you posted in the wrong forum.

That option has been removed, so you'll need to edit code

Find  in ./Themes/default/Display.template.php

Code: [Select]
// Show quickreply
if ($context['can_reply'])
template_quickreply();

To hide it from everyone

Code: [Select]
// Show quickreply
//if ($context['can_reply'])
///template_quickreply();

To hide it from a specific user

Code: [Select]
// Show quickreply
if ($context['can_reply'] && $context['user']['id'] == 1)
template_quickreply();

Why was it removed?  Some of my guys want to show quick reply, some don't.  It's a useful option.

a good few options that are in 2.0 were removed in 2.1 to make it easier to support. this was one of them.

TinyPortal is a much better way of doing that anyway, in my opinion.



re Ability to disable quick reply

Why was it removed?  Some of my guys want to show quick reply, some don't.  It's a useful option.

Absolutely I've just found out about this today and it makes no sense.
Nor does
a good few options that are in 2.0 were removed in 2.1 to make it easier to support. this was one of them.


How can the lack of that feature make 2.1 "easier to support". It seems it was able to be supported in 2.0 easily enough.
By that argument they should take another 30 features out of 2.1 to make it even easier to support. 

Nope that's a dumb move and dumber reason IMHO.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with questions on astrophysics or theology.  You will get better and faster responses by asking homeless people in the street. Thank you.

To paraphrase Kindred: "There are no technical solutions to social problems."

No hack nor blackhats, just persistent asshats.

easier to support by our developers and themers. some of the features that were removed have made it easier to make responsive. also if you want the features back then see if you can get a mod created to put them back.
