    While we are on the subject of requests. Is there someway of adding a "reply to thread" button at the top of each thread? In long running threads such as the Arkansas BS thread we have ongoing dialog (read: bullshit) everyday. It would be nice to have a button at the top to add a post instead of scrolling to the bottom of the thread. I know, I know...it's lazy and nitpicky.

    In the old version of the forum, you could organize your watched threads by self-defined categories (folders). Is there a way to organize watched threads?

    If I didn't want to show what you said, I could delete everything and this is all you would see.
    You could use the first post, 5th post or whenever you choose.

    You never have to scroll to the bottom to reply.

    Maybe I misunderstood what you want...
    Do you want to be able to reply at any time in a thread?

    P.S. 40years Arkansas boy, born and raised.

    No, I understand how to do that. I was suggesting that code be written to place a "Reply" button at the top of the page so when you want to make a comment you don't have to scroll to the bottom and click Reply. So, you would then have a reply button at the top and the bottom.

    Is it possible to now edit the title of your thread?

    I seem to remember something indicating you could.

    Yes, a stooped typo!

    :D

    Hiya. On the revo theme on a mobile, the menu bar gets shortened and a drop down menu is created. However the drop down menu is populated from right to left, this means that all that I see on the menu bar is "Forums you ignore" with everything else in the dropdown menu in reverse order.
    Basically what I would like is for "Watched Threads" to be on the main menu with everything else in the dropdown menu.
    Thanks from a long time lurker.
    MrKiwi and SnowMule like this.

    posted this in another thread
    my mistake as i should have put it here

    does this xenforo have a double post merge add on like
    https://xenforo.com/community/threads/wmtech-double-post-merge.33328/
    which Merges consecutive posts created by the same user within a specified time frame to stop the 4 or 5 whatever number of posts being put into a thread one after the other instead of them editing there own post
    getting there post count up:dunno is the only reason i see for them doing it
    thanks

    ThumperTalk does that. It's both nice and annoying as fuck at times.

    Mod tools make it easy to zot a few mmuullttii--ppoossttss.. Even compacting them into one still leaves a really oddball long post.

    We've been having some performance issues and outages with this plugin, so I disabled it for now while we investigate.

    Would that be why all the forums I ignore have returned?

    Same here, but it does seem to have increased the speed.

    It's on the verge of going down again. We're trying to figure out why.
