    Default PM Quick-reply box to automatically contain quoted message

    So many times I'll get a pm like this:

    Subject: Re: Question
    Body:
    "Ok, What about them?"


    It is difficult to figure out what the heck it's talking about, as the message history isn't always available, and the responder didn't quote the previous PM because they used the quick-reply box instead of the reply button.

    So please can you enable the quick reply box to contain the quoted message as default? This is common with other forums I have used.

    thanks a million for all you do!

    Done.

    Also did some silly shit to the PM listing layout.

    YAY! Buttons.

    Hehe, I was just doing a PM and when I returned to my inbox it had all changed. Much better now that you can preview the messages

    Welcome back Robert, hope everything's working out for you.

    Sorry to get your hopes up... I had to disable that PM preview thing, it makes an unbelievably large number of connections to the DB to operate and will end up being a huge problem for board functionality, specifically the already super klunky PM handler. Thats something I might be able to work around and while I am messing around with that I want to see if I can get the feature inside the user control panel so it can be toggled... I got a couple of nasty-o-grams from people about how they don't like it and how it messes up something or the other.

    PM auto-quote in QR land will stay, that only brings a single extra DB query with it. Hooray for efficient widgets.
