Ditch canned replies?

At the moment there are two possible way to create and use predefined answers: canned replies and saved actions.

Since latter also includes - besides adding a post reply - the option to hide/unhide/move/lock threads as well as manipulate the topic title by adding a pre- or suffix I suggest to get rid of canned replies.

 

The downside of this change is that it is no longer possible for anybody, who has permission to do so, to create their own canned replies. However I barely notice anyone using this feature and the most common used canned reply is "missing armbianmonitor -u". Therefore not a big loss. This can easily be implemented as saved action as well.

Check forum guidelines to use maximum potential!

Should I warn you for a duplicate post?

 

There's an annoying bug with canned replies anyway which is I can't select the default reply without choosing another first.   Then I have to clean up.

 

Anyway sounds like it's worth trying new way then we can disable canned plugin?

Unhide & reply please add missing data:

  • Will unhide the topic in case it is hidden (likely due to moderation approval)
  • and reply this:

I just disabled canned replies.

Sure there is a phase of adjust but if you think about: Before you needed clicks to unhide. Then clicks to active the reply and submit. Now you select the matching action and confirm. Less clicks.

FWIW, I never used them because it was unclear to me exactly what they did (until you explained in detail above, so thanks for that).

 

My personal take is also a little more nuanced, but I have not been doing it as long as some of you guys either.
