A PVR forum I peruse also uses the vBulletin software.

On their threads whenever someone quotes someone else and it appears as a quote with the funky highlighting and all, there is a little arrow next to it that takes you to the original thread of the quoted text.

I never realized how useful it was until I realized it existed.

Is that possible here?

Is it a good idea?


see ya

The little arrow next to samundsen's name in the quote

It's not something that will save lives. But if it is just an option they can turn on with a click, it would probably come in handy....

I could see where this could be a good idea. Especially if the quote came from another thread or the thread was extremely long and the quote did not make much sense out of context, or the viewer wanted to know more about what was being talked about. There are times when I edit a quote just to reply to a single question or comment, so I can see how easy it would be for others to not know what the entire conversation is about.

I think that's a feature of vBulletin 3.6.

:thumbsup: Can't hurt.
Better to have it and not need it than vice versa.

BTW, thanks for the PVR site link...now on my quick launch :)
