The name pretty much says it all.. lets you reply more quickly.
A simple addon that just lets you reply to a topic without loading a new page just to start typing.
Excellent for most posts where you dont need to add images, url's, smilies and such. Or if you know the text for them and dont need to click the buttons.

Code:
 like :twisted: for the smiling devil smiley, or <blockquote> </blockquote> for quotes and so on..


There are several addons for this, here is one: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=839905

phpBBv3.0.6 actually has this built in. Should be a simple toggle in the ACP assuming that we are running on 3.0.6+.

Edit: may have to have a theme modification assuming that we are not completely updated with theme changes.

I tried to set this up, but it wasn't showing in the theme. I would like to have it there, and will look at it again.

Yeah, it's likely caused due to this theme being built upon 3.0.5 (or earlier) and not having the theme changes from the later versions merged in.

It was back around 3.0.2 when I tried. The default theme with phpBB works on the quick reply.
