Disable quote in quick reply
I want to enable the quick reply so that my members can just click on the quick reply button at the end of the article and post a comment.

However, I also noticed that by doing this, the cursor will actually jump to the quick reply box below with an option of whether to "quote message in quick reply" or not.

Is there a way where we can disable the option to quote message in quick reply? I do not want any member to quote the original article and end up with an ultra long commet.

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

hmmm. You can create a copy of your showthread template... call it GARS_showthread
Then adjust the QR how you see fit. Then edit your admincp->gars->templates->default showthread page to use GARS_showthread

Hope that makes sense ;)

Thanks The Geek! Will try that out :)

I tried on your solution and was able to disable the checkbox for the quick reply quote when I open up individual article.

However, when I click on the quick reply button at the end of the article, the checkbox became enable again :confused:

If I am not mistaken, the following quote below that I ave extracted from GARB_pb actually 'control' the action of the button? If that is the case, is there anything that I need to add/delete to the below quote to disable the checkbox? (I am suspecting that it might be something to do with id="qr_$post[postid]" but I just couldn't figure out how to go about doing it due to my limited knowledge :o

PHP Code:

<if condition="$show['quickreply'] AND !$show['threadedmode']">
a href="$post[replylink]" rel="nofollow" id="qr_$post[postid]" onclick="return false"><img src="$stylevar[imgdir_button]/quickreply.gif" alt="$vbphrase[quick_reply_to_this_message]" border="0" /></a>

Also, I tried changing the "quick_reply_to_this_message" to some other messages but nothing show up when I point my cursor to the icon (ps. I have already reloaded the template).

I think you would remove that code AND the quick reply code from the showthread template.
Ill see if I can put an override ability in 2.0 so you wont have to do template tweaks.

Thanks! Looks like that is the only thing I can do at the moment :)
