Forum

i was just thinking about how to do the reply with quote feature in the forums wich is pretty essential to this forum style and had an idea

the nested blockquotes like 2.0 might not work too well on mobile with each getting narrower and narrower

so an idea cameto me when u reply quoting the  comment your replying to it ads a colapsable div with link the links show the nested  structure then when clicked open uop the quoted text

furthermore when they are revealed they use the odd/even instance of.. to give an alternating styling (background diferences )

so as a crude example

in 2.0

reply

sdfghjkkijuyhtgfdf

   quoted reply 1

    fghjkljhgfdghjk      

        quoted reply 2

         dfghjklkjhg

              quoted reply 3

               dfghjkkjhygttfrdrftgyhujk

in 3.0 something more like

reply

sdfghjklkjhgf

this is in reply to:

link to quote 1

  link to quoted 2

    link to quoted 3

then when you click any link the quoted text is revealed

might not be the best way just brainstorming on ways to make it work out since the old nested blockquote style might not be ideal

  • Would be great to see this as a working prototype -- I've added your brainstorm to the feature request we have on file. Expandable quotes that can be accessed on a need to know basis are a good space saving solution. Thanks, SE.

    • working prototype is your department/job and may not be as easy as id think  (sorta like jensocials accordian slider expanding divs)

      im just the idea man i can picture it working great but the reality of working in responsive design  will have to be seen

      but i keep getting these ideas and inspirations

      i just got an idea for profile customizations that will be ok for end users  and not break responsiveness ill post that in a sec

      • Haha, don't worry I wasn't asking you to come up with that prototype! You are the visionary ;-)
