You could do that in the old version.

The quickedit feature is cool but it hangs after you complete your edit.

I despise quick edit. It just flat out doesnt work.

I love these new features and they're making me really envious. I kinda want them on my forum. laugh.gif Although if I were to actually pay for forum software, I'd have to debate between this and vBullitein.

That's because it's AJAX. It has to save your edit to the database and stuff. It only takes like 5 seconds which is less than it'd take to load the edit page and then the thread again. Stop bitching. tongue.gif

Use a decent browser. Works perfectly fine here in Firefox.

Also for mods, you can click on a title in the main forum and hold it and it will allow you to edit the title. Pretty niftay!
høgh

But what is so special about the FastReply thing?

I don't know if this one is new but it sure has proven itself useful.

i've found that sometimes it wont update the "last post made by" line. i'll make a post, close the window. then open it up a few minutes later to find someone elses name there, so i think a new post has been made, but there hasnt and my post is really the last post made. not really a problem. but confusing somtiems!

Just found this one, thought it was kind of cool.

If you are viewing a thread that has a crap ton of pages and you want to skip to a certain page, just click where it says "# pages" and it opens a box where you can just type the number.

The 100PPP (posts per page) setting is also a great underutilized feature.
trail_boss2
I tried 100ppp but I didnt like it so I went back down to 30.
Cyclone
So anyone find the "Filter out random chinese gibberish" option yet?

I used it for a long time, but it took a while for some pages that are picture intensive to load. I'm back at the forum default.
