I'd like to add a button labeled "conversation" that would sit beside "reply" when my users view a thread. The purpose is to directly open a conversation with a poster in the thread. The name of the poster would automatically load into the participant window. There could be many posters and each would have a conversation button the same way as they each currently have a reply button. The new button would be a direct shortcut to the "start a new conversation" page. My users are already able to do this with our current forum software and I want to offer the same convenience. I'm hoping Jake might have an idea on how to proceed.
