Compression?? of quoted replies

Post by shellspeed »

Dear The Kaptain

Not sure if this is possible with the forum coding the Kabin uses???? (see example in link below)

http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/p ... 4/page-211

It certainly helps me identify new posts when viewing this forum but I have not seen it used elsewhere.

Maybe put it the a vote if it is??????
Well Keeled :smt020

Eventually I saw what you mean James, and I can see its usefulness. I don't think there is an extension for phpBB along those lines, but I will certainly look into it. It is certainly a possibility.

... and three years later I have finally remembered about this and (hopefully) written an extension for it. Its working in testing but would like some feedback before implementing it here.

At present it reduces all quoted text to maximum 200px high and adds a scroll bar to the side when needed. Should this be a global setting (in the same way that quoted images are reduced in size for everyone) or should the individual user decide?

The image is how it looks on my test board.

All feedback is welcome

Great option to scroll and not have reams of stuff to go through on multi quotes. 8) :smt023

I like the idea of a scroll bar.

Multiple nested quotes are unnecessary and a mark of laziness IMHO.

Having done some more testing and checking I think that the extension is good to go. Please let me know what you think. It can be seen working below

As you can see, quoted text is dramatically reduced in visible size.
