    I want quoting enabled but is there a way to prevent the reply link in each post from inserting a quote of the post automatically?

    Uses a lot of screen real estate when not required.

    You could remove the content in the quote. However, there will be no indication of someone getting quoted besides an alert.

    I have quoted you.

    Is that manually on per post basis? I wouldn't want anyone getting an alert.

    It's a real problem on our existing platform where we have disable quoting unless user does it manually with BBcode. IMO a reply link/button should be just that & not insert a quote.

    We are an image heavy forum & ended up with images & loads of text repeating within a thread. Makes following a thread a PITA especially when the quoted post was massive & the reply was just a few words.
