I must be thick or something but whilst setting the prefs in cbb 304 i came accross this and I can't work out what the heck it means or at least in what situation would you use it?

Re: What on earth.......

I'm guessing it's for ensuring the original post is read before being allowed to post a reply. Sometimes in particularly long threads, the later posts might start to go off-topic when people reply to the later posts rather than the original one. I suppose it might help to keep threads from derailing. How it actually does this I don't know. Perhaps I'll try it and get back to you.

Re: What on earth.......

Actually, I just checked one of my sites which already had this feature enabled......I can't say I've noticed anything different

I must say that this is quite a confusing sentence:

How can you reply to a post you haven't read yet?

Hi,

I don't use cbb, so can't be shure, but some forums have [hide] .... [/hide] tags.

When you make post, you can include part of the message in this tags and it will not be visible to users untill they reply. Instead a text "this part is visible only if you have reply to message" is shown. So you still read unhiden part if you did not reply, but for full message you have to reply ...
