Clickable links in quote headers

Post by Horace » Mon Sep 19, 2016 3:57 pm

Bruce,

We need clickable links in quote headers, not only the text: "user wrote".

Such links should be automatically inserted while quoting something with the "Reply with Quote" button and take the subsequent the reader to the post where that quote originated from. It is the default quote header behavior on other successful forums.

Automatic quote date insertion would be nice too.

There are no extensions yet available for the phpBB 3.1 branch that does this. There are some in the 3.0 branch--if you want to convert one to 3.1, I'll be happy to install it. (See: QPBL and Back Link.)

These features are now available when you use Quote (") button to reply. It includes the current username in the quote, the time of the quote, a link to the original post and a link to the poster's profile. (As demonstrated in the above quote.)

If you want to use these features from another topic/reply, go to that topic and hit the Quote button, as if replying, and copy the "quote" tag from it.
