View Full Version : Suggestion for composer

When replying to a post, it would be convenient if the post you are responding to were visible from the composer, so that you can refer to it, copy and paste from it, etc. I'm not saying include it in the reply itself as we often see in email, only that the original post is visible at the same time you compose the reply.

The latest topic in the thread that you're replying to can be found at the bottom of the page, but it's cumbersome to scroll up and down. You can choose to quote the post, in which case its contents appear where you type your post. However, you then have to remember to delete the quoted portions.

The next version of the community software will have improved post creation, I believe. So I'm going to wait on us upgrading to it prior to attempting anything on this current version. Your suggestion is on the list of things to check when we do upgrade to the next version, though.
