I know I saw something related before, but for the life of me I can't find it now.

Is placing the reply at the bottom of the page an option or a hard feature? While I will get what the poster said as a quote in my reply, I don't see what they quoted. And sometimes that helps to remember the context of what they are saying and affects how I respond. Before it was just scroll up a little to reference. Now I have to scroll up, maybe even up to the top of the page and then all the way down again.

There is a reply button in every post on the far right by the like button- clicking this will auto quote the poster.

There is also a reply button at the very top of the tread on the right..near the watch button.

Finally, there is a textbox at the bottom of every thread that can be used to reply.

Hope this helps. :)

I didn't answer your question at all... sorry about that.

If you have javascript turned off, quoting will not work well.

Also, if you turn on Javascript there is an arrow popup at the bottom right that scrolls to the very top or very bottom of the page instantly.

I wasn't thinking about this at all. I just really liked how a reply box would appear directly under the post we're quoting (instead of at the bottom of the page) on the old system, and wondered if that was an option here or not.

Yeah that was nice, now after you post it goes back to the last post you've read.

Me too. I was confused when I read the post above the reply box and it was not the one I quoted. On other XF forums the reply box feature does work the way we like it.
