    ATM we have this text in the alert box:
    it would be cool, if on mouseover on "post" a box with the post would apear (like on forumlist, if you hover over an thread, or like on my recent threads box ( http://ragtek.org/xenforo/ )

    Often i'd like to know which post was liked, but it's IMHO unnecessary to load the complete page for this....

    I'm in two minds.. is it worth an extra query just to see a like when I can click the page and load it in less than 2s and I'm not sure if a drop-down and a tooltip in that small area is going to be friendly, but on the other hand it's a handy feature.

    I like the idea, but it seems pretty hard to implement and it could possibly cause some issues...it is kinda hard to decide, I say it is best as a mod :).

    1 extra query?
    loading the whole page needs more ressources & traffic.

    The implementation doesn't sound too hard. You query the post, truncate it, load an overlay template and put it in there. bam. But James made a good point. I'd just click on the link to see the post and other posts around it too.

    1 extra query - for the message only. No need to load anything else there I suppose.

    lol
    once again, the process between xf getting the request and the xenforo outputs needs much more then 1 query (even for overlays;) )

    +1, I don't think it would really make too much of a mess design wise(xF has always been good with the designing) but the extra queries does not seem worth it IMHO.

    That's what i mean:

    Pos1 isn't necessary because the text is already shown, but i prefer the overlay for my boards
    and POS2 is what i'm requesting=>

    (there's only 1 problem in the standard style :( => http://xenforo.com/community/posts/234842/ )
