    Won't be using this myself - but what happens if they can't register/fail to register and then another guest posts and uses this feature and successfully registers. Does it end up placing both posts with their user name? Or does it flush the first attempt. And if so, what happens if 3 or 4 or using it at the same time?

    I would like to see it function simplier. Just show quick reply, but when someone clicks inside to post it suddenly redirects you to login/registration form.

    But don't get me wrong. Great job you did here!

    Good point, would like to know as well. In addition, is there any live forum/demo that you can show us? I would like to see how does it work on a live site.

    Just curious...what if someone has the username "jitreguser"?

    Then they're very strange, but it wouldn't do anything - the post is still linked to a guest user, not the existing user.

    The post isn't linked to the new user until the datawriter has finished saving.

    If the post isn't linked to an account within an hour of it being posted, it'll be deleted by the cron.

    It's installed on my production forum: https://www.ingressexperts.com/forums

    Choose a forum to reply to, and post the reply :)

    I like this - but I'd really prefer an option to have the registration form loaded in a pop-up. :)

    That's where the issues come in. It doesn't want to do that, at all. Somewhere, the system is set to show any views that come back from the reply controller as a popup in the thread.

    That's how the post 'jumps' in, and I haven't found a way to stop this from happening (it was my original plan to have it in an overlay).

    Hmm, maybe you could just jazz up the appearance of the registration form that appears when you click 'Post Reply'?

    It's the default registration template, and it appears to load rather blandly. I'll see what I can do though...

    What if the site has an average of 11 registrations per hour with spiked up to 80 an hour? And I'm sure that this functionality would increase it a lot more.

    @jdeg what kind of increase did you see from adding such functionality?

    It's working, but I think it would make it much better if the user, after registration to the forum, would be redirected back to his/her message and not to the main page/control panel.

    Yeah that's really important I think.

    Please add facebook connect button too. So if they want they can simply click on facebook connect button to register without filling all the form

    • If the user "jitreguser" exists, even guests won't be able to post (quick fix : forbid this username in ACP -> Users and registration).
    • Add the Facebook registration button.

    Great addon !
