    My memory isn't what it used to be.
    I have a feeling that back in The Good Old Days(TM) the response header or banner used to carry a bit of text that referred back to the post being responded to.
    If user elects not to use the (quote)(/quote) convention I am sometimes left wondering whether the responder is responding to a post I made (another excuse for me to respond), or whether the response is to some other post within the thread.

    Yes, this software does not do that. Of course, if you switch to the "Outline" view you can see that the information is available in the database, it just isn't part of the template for the standard view. I think it would be a very useful addition to the wish list.

    Thanks for the reply, Jefferson.
    Is this what you refer to as Outline View?

    I assume so, but I don't use it often, so I don't recall the details.
