Is it only me who presses the "Reply to thread" button instead of "Post quick reply"? It just leaps out of the page and is the most obvious control there....

    No, I accidentally click the one at the bottom-left of each reply page quite often, so ended up having to block it because I kept clicking it to submit my quick replies, which of course kept opening a new reply text box and deleting my already entered text. Blocking it just seemed easier than having to repeatedly start over from scratch with replies.

    I used to fall into that same trap ozar. I found if you hit the yellow reply button. Then it disappears (I should say goes to top of reply box) when reply box shows up. If you hit the reply in the posted box (quick reply). Then the yellow button reply shows up also (at bottom of reply box) which will po a replying poster when their 1000 word post gets deleted.

    On the previous forum software, I used the advanced reply option exclusively, but the various reply buttons seem to work differently in this version of the software. Quite a bit of blocking takes place on my end through adblock plus and element hiding helper (both are MUST have options for me), so what I actually see on each page looks very different from what most other users are probably seeing.

    Glad I'm not the only one

    I don't normally install the Element Hider but that button really grinds my gears so I have and it's gone!
