It would be awesome if I can move a certain reply up and down or underneath first thread. Also if I can have a option in node that says "check here to allow yours post under first thread reply. And there would also be a check box that says: reply under first thread" and maybe another option in node that allows only the auther to do that.
Replies are posts. How can you have a reply underneath a thread? A post is within a thread, it's not listed alongside threads. As for moving posts up and down, they are listed in date order. A thread wouldn't make sense if the posts weren't in chronological order.
For example... I have a topic called lipstick gallery. In there members post pictures of themselves but I dont allow members to edit. Besides even if they edit the post wont bump up so people wouldnt know if they added somthing in there new . In there people post pics of themselves. Now if they want to add more pics after all the replies if they add more pics who knows people will habe to scroll to page 2 or 3 or 4 and everytime they add pics they have to look at every single page to view them all. Now u can easily edit the first post and add pics in there as you go... but how would sombody know a new pic was in there? Just with a edit? So if you reply with a new pic and click bump under first post... then the topic will get bumped and also the pics will be in the first then the second post will have the new pics
I know its not that hard and its easy but it might be a little difficult for people who never used a forum. Besides I was just asking because it would make things simpler and more options is better I think
Based on the same idea, is there any way to insert a black (or new) post under the first post after a thread is filled. I guess all these functions could be attained by a "re-dating" of a post...by admin.
I'd be amazed if no add-on was ever thought of for this. It could be extremely useful. What we do instead now is to reserve a few (empty) posts after the first, but you never know how many to do and also many threads don't have these reserved posts, so you are SOL if you want to add posts to the original subject and not have them at the end.
