Hi Brando, hello everyone,

Seems to be a little confusion (on my part, anyway) about the "subject" box on the individual response pages.

There have been some who, when responding, enter a different name for the post, than the thread title. Very necessary in a venue, such as a mailing list, where messages are not threaded. I don't see any need here.

No problem if one is doing a search by threads, but confusing if one is doing it by posts.

Can the box be removed without upsetting anything else? If not, I can live with it.

Regards, Norm

Yea, I really don't see a need for the subject box for replies either, I'll remove it today after class...

I'll also make it so that it automatically inputs "Re: [topic title]" for each reply subject.

Nevermind...I found out that the template that is used for posting new topics is the one used for replies. So users would not be able to enter a topic subject if I removed the input box, I did however make it so that Re: [topic title] automatically gets put into the box for each reply. People can still edit it, but it should deter most from putting anything else in there.
