    Getting people started posting topics and replying to topics should be easier than just telling them to register and then having to have them go back and find the topic or forum that they were in to create a topic or reply.

    http://www.verticalscope.com has a system that I really like here: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f14/pro-comp-jk-helldorado-wheels-17x9-525905.html

    Scroll down to the bottom of the thread and see that they present you the quick reply box, registration form and login form at the point where someone who has read a topic is likely ready to reply to a topic.

    xenForo should present the same behavior. Right now you have small, barely noticeable text at the end of a topic saying you must login or sign up to reply.

    Why not present them the quick reply form and below that present them tools to register or login to create the reply to the topic.

    The Post Thread button can link them to the create topic page where the same options can be given.

    Screenshot of how they do it:

    I'd also like to see something like this developed. I think there's a prettier way to make it happen but the idea is pretty great from an interaction point-of-view.

    I'd like to see this worked on as well...could be very beneficial...and outside the box for forums in general.

    Thanks. Its nice to see someone else put that together and had the same general end goal.

    And this is stock? o_O

    EDIT: Nevermind. It's a plugin. Drat! :cautious:

    But yeah, I'd be interested in this. Mostly because I want to inspire users to register, but without annoying them.

    I'm sure "officially" it would be implemented much better... but, for the time being as a last resort, that option is there.

    No, its a relatively simple template modification. Well, actually very easy. The only issue anyone would have is styling it to get the look you want to achieve.

    Figures. I'll wait until this is either stock or a plugin.

    But your screenshot shows a huge registration box... Sheldon's screenshot gif is better than this.
    Too intrusive for my tastes, I like Sheldon's idea.

    But I'll go along with this to get the idea rollin'.
    Liked.
