Did you know you can enable a feature called Quick Reply?  Quick Reply allows you to reply directly via the screen you are currently viewing without reloading the full Reply screen with all of the extra bells & whistle buttons (smileys, insert image, etc.).

You can manually type the extra bells & whistles, if you wish, but with Quick Reply, you won't have to wait for the whole screen to reload and display all of those extra buttons. Smiley

To enable this feature:
  • Click MY CRAFTSTER on the tape measure menu toward the top of the screen
  • Click My Profile
  • Under the heading Modify Profile, click Look and Layout Preferences
  • Select "show on by default" from the dropdown menu for Use quick reply on topic display:
  • Click Change profile



Now when you visit any thread on Craftster, at the very bottom of the screen, you'll see this lovely little Quick Reply box.

Here's a view of it in action!  Just type your reply and click Post.  Voil!


click to zoom in

As always, happy crafting! Kiss

Good tip!  I am always looking at the cool projects and don't think to look around at the cool features that get added to the boards.  Thanks!

Oh gosh, had I know about this feature nearly 2 years ago, I'd have a rediculous post count, enabled or not!  This site is addicting in and of itself!  I would never survive with out craftster!


ETA:  Is it sad that I went the long route to reply?  or just proof that old dogs need longer to learn new tricks?
