Threaded posts

I'm not sure this is such a good idea. Now new posts don't necessarily go to the bottom and it makes keeping track kind of annoying. I'm just replying to everything at the bottom instead of risking it being lost back in the thread (especially since email link doesn't work), and I'm sure others are doing the opposite, so just insistent all around.

This only actually applies where the "Quote" button doesn't work - i.e., poll threads. Otherwise I'd always use "Quote" to make it clear what I'm replying to. The email notifications take me to the right place as long as there are less than 50 posts in the topic. After 50 it gets a bit harder.

Testing reply.

 

I guess you're right, it's only the Eastward thread which has the problem. That makes it inconsistent with all the other threads.

It seems to be the poll module that causes this - it seems to be inconsistent with the rest. Otherwise it works well for me.

Ah, thanks guys for bringing this up. Yes, the settings of the poll module were inconsistent with the rest of the forum posts. I think I fixed it now for polls- no threaded posts and the quote button works now.

Have a good one!
