XF 1.4 Disable quote on reply button

Can someone explain how to disable automatically quoting a post when someone clicks the reply button within that post? I think it causes confusion and unnecessary endless quoting. There's already a quote button right next to it by default so there's no reason for them to do essentially the same thing. Just adds clutter too. The highlight text/quote reply is nicer anyway.

Thanks.

In the conversation_message template, find this and comment it out:

Code:
                        <a href="{xen:link 'conversations/reply', $conversation, 'm={$message.message_id}'}"
                            class="item control reply ReplyQuote"><span></span>{xen:phrase reply}</a>

In the post template, find this and comment it out:

Code:
                    <a href="{xen:link threads/reply, $thread, 'quote={$post.post_id}'}"
                        data-postUrl="{xen:link posts/quote, $post}"
                        data-tip="#MQ-{$post.post_id}"
                        class="ReplyQuote item control reply"
                        title="{xen:phrase reply_quoting_this_message}"><span></span>{xen:phrase reply}</a>

Thanks @Maru

But this looks like it would remove the reply button, correct? I don't want to remove the button per post, only disable it from quoting the post. In other words, simply act as a reply button without quoting the post.

If you aren't quoting a post, then just use the reply text box at the bottom of the thread. Like I am doing now.

The only thing is that without a quote people can't know you are replying to a specific post. So it's not really a reply to anything, just an addition to the thread in general.

To show a reply to a specific post, but without quoting would need some other way to show it's the reply, e.g with a nested view of posts or some other indicator that you are referencing a certain post.

I would also like to do this.

The reason is i am always finding myself pressing on "Reply" just so i takes me to the very bottom and i can reply to the thread. In this case i always have to delete the quoted stuff. I find reply a bit misleading. Unless you read the hovering part. Which says it quotes that post.

I wish the reply would take you to the bottom without quoting.

Or maybe add my own link?

anyone figure it out?


thanks.

You can use this also but it only works in IE, for some reason it doesn't work in Chrome

<a href="{$requestPaths.requestUri}#quickreply" style="margin-left: 10px;">Reply</a>

In the "Post" template


At the very bottom on the 7th line from the bottom: I had to add some spaces because i wouldn't automatically put a space


This should work
&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="{$requestPaths.requestUri}#QuickReply" title="Reply Thread"><span></span>Reply&nbsp;Thread</a>


</xen:if>
</xen:hook>
</div>
</div>
</xen:set>

</xen:include>



Mine looks different because i added a Top & worded it different

But here's mine:
Code:
<xen:include template="message">

    <xen:map from="$post" to="$message" />

    <xen:set var="$messageId">post-{$post.post_id}</xen:set>

    <xen:set var="$likesUrl">{xen:link posts/likes, $post}</xen:set>

    <xen:set var="$messageContentAfterTemplate"><xen:if is="{$post.attachments}"><xen:include template="attached_files" /></xen:if></xen:set>

    <xen:set var="$messageAfterTemplate">

        </div>
    </xen:set>

</xen:include>


I find it very useful. I can easily go to the bottom and reply without quoting and the top makes it even more convient


Heres the outcome
