I think it woudl be quite cool to have a quick reply option for all topics, it would mean that we wouldnt need to change to a different page to reply to a topic, which woudl decrease traffic and decrease the annoyance that occurs when there is a delay in loading a page!

Here is the brief descritpion of this add-on

This hack allows users to use a quick reply form which is placed below every topic.

It will only display when a user has the reply access. The user will have an option to quote the last message and an option to recieve notification upon reply. If they have reply access, guest users can enter a name. A list of 24 smilies is shown below input area. Users can paste names of other users into the textarea just by clicking on the name. They can select any text on a page and quote it to the input area.

you are prolly referring to the Invision boards which have teh quick reply option built in, i find it very useful.

Unfortunately its not built in on PhpBB so this is an additional add-on to install this feature on it.

there is no quick reply add-on for 2.0.8 at the moment, you could install this one but keep a copy of the edited PHP files, and test it out! It wouldnt be too hard to revert back to the unedited ones if something went wrong!

well SQL queries doesnt take long to complete - and it would be where the old reply box was (and you're already using them to pull comments out from the board database) the reply would only be a few inserts and they wouldnt effect loading times.
all it would need was a login on the front page and a reply link.

and when it comes to slow loading, the problem occurs at topbar.box.sk. i dunno whats there, but thats what has been slow this last weeks time or so.

only seems to be slow loading on ggmania, all other box network sites using the topbar seem fine! is ggmania a low priority on topbar.box.sk for bandwidth or something?
