    Default Forum 'Technicality' question??

    Can it be explained to me if there is any difference between using the "Reply To Thread" button, as opposed to using the "Quick Reply" box???

    mtv's right, no difference ~ afaik it's a convenience throwback wrt earlier incantations of vbulletin, and subsequent GUI developments....'reply to thread' button defaults to quick reply editor mode, however if you double-click the 'reply to thread' button, that will open the editor in advanced mode directly....which is no different from clicking the 'go advanced' button at the right bottom of quick reply editor box.

    Thanks for that. I wasn't aware of the "Double-Click" option, or the "Advanced Reply".
    I did notice though that the "Quick Reply" did not have the options to include photos etc....
