Question about quote button
Im using mybb for a couple of months now and getting used to it.
I come from an smf board so things has been different.
When going into a tread I see a button under a new reply called reply.
What happens is that a lot of people on my board use this button to add a new reply.
But this button quotes the text so its kind of messy
I wonder if its possible to change this to a quote button and if so I got the appart night theme does anyone knows where I possibly could find this?

You can find this button in:

Code:
The contents of this section are hidden from your usergroup.

Register

You can change the img or text from there, depending on what your current theme is using.

<a href="newreply.php?tid={$tid}&amp;pid={$post['pid']}"><img src="{$theme['imglangdir']}/postbit_quote.gif" alt="{$lang->postbit_quote}" title="{$lang->postbit_quote}" /></a>

You'll need to create an new image, your theme is using images as buttons. Locate this button and edit it:

/postbit_quote.gif

RE: Question about quote button
Well finaly changed the icon for the quote button.
While testing it I find out that when U use this quote button it also quote the info thats inside the hide code I use.
Is there a way to fix this or even better...
Is there a way to remove this quote button from the treadstarter's topic?
In other words users can only quote the reply's and on the begin topic No quote button.

edit:
found it in the postbit and postbit_classic template.
Only problem is now that they are also gone at the reply's...

I have a plugin for that. It stops users quoting the first post in a thread: http://www.mybbextras.net/showthread.php?tid=1798

Note: Its a subscriber plugin though.
