    Cool Post editing on the fly

    This is pretty cool You'll notice on the bottom left of your posts...just under your sig there's a 'quickedit' radio button. If you click that, a little edit post pop up will come up so you can quickly edit your posts without having to load up the editpost page.

    Very useful for us turtle speed browsers....I know that editpost page is pretty slow to load I'm gonna try and see if I can integrate the "solved" hack used in the 'where can I find this song' and 'Trivia' forums another time as well.

    Note: It'll only appear under your posts....no one elses. Admins and supermods will see it under all posts. Also, my apologies to any Mozilla users out there, but it doesn't work for that browser.

    Kewl feature, Roemello. I'm back using Internet Explorer, so I can see everything the way it should be seen.

    Great! Especially considering I tend to click the "Submit Reply" button a little too hastily at times.

    There's another nifty little addition I'm thinkin of flippin in, but last time I tried it, it was coming out all wrong It's a multi-quoting feature where you checkbox all the posts you want to quote on a page, and it'll be automatically added to the quick reply box. If I can get that working right the way I want it one of these days, that'll be pretty sweet

    As for the spellchecker question...it is addable, but I've heard it can be a bit of a database drain...I've been trying to cut back on database queries and such wherever I can so the server hosts don't bitch at Sal

    And congrats on getting back on IE Rhel! However, I'm pretty sure this feature does work with Opera....I think. Pretty sure it's just Mozilla that it doesn't like

    I love this thing, too! I like it better than the quick PM system we had, since I screw up more than I send PMs.

    You'd like to think so, wouldn't you?
    I don't know. I lost my psychic abilities when they stole my superhero powers.

    I've noticed the QuickEdit button more than once, but I haven't tried it...till now!

    QuickEdit really works!

    Re: Post editing on the fly

    Just a quick note to let yas know quick editing is back! Just a little different in this version... look for this icon: somewhere on your post (it differs depending if you're viewing user info on top or on the left) to bring up the quick edit box... works the same as before
