    What does this do exactly? The screenshots don't show the reply page.
    Does the text editor show up in an overlay? The screenshots don't show specifics :p

    It opens a reply to the thread. Like the real reply page.

    For instance, click on this. Reply

    That's the link it generates.

    Ah, right. It might work better if it opens the editor as an overlay, that way you can submit and move down to the next thread(s), jumping to and from the reply page seems like a lot of effort to reply :p

    We should reply to a thread while inside a thread instead of using overlays. This is just a shortcut to advanced reply from the thread listing. If someone wanted to reply to threads using overlays that then all the posts in the thread should show up too and that would require another addon entirely. Plus xenforo overlays don't always look too good from a mobile phone. That's why you don't see many overlays on XFStop Mobile Theme.

    Indeed, but why would you ever want to jump directly to the Reply page without reading a thread (which is what this add-on does).

    Nevertheless, useful add-on for those who wish to use it.

    Thanks. The same question was asked in the template modification thread. Same answer applies.

    He doesn't wish to make it an overlay.
