    Can we get a popup showing beginning of a post?

    Another forum using vBulletin® Version 3.8.2 will show me a popup of the beginning of each post, as the cursor is placed on the title. This is very convenient for deciding whether to click on the post to read further (especially considering the response time I'm getting from ws servers). I don't see a setting for that on my end; could you effect such a feature on this version? Thanks.

    We had that for a little while but people complained it was distracting....it would be nice if it were user configurable, or available in certain skins.

    I would say +1 to that. The forum wouldn't let me just say +1 though.

    +1.

    Distracting? The first line of a post is usually more enlightening than the excuse for a thread title I often see.

    I suppose this is not a democracy, but I didn't get a vote. Ever heard the expression "silent majority"? Just how many complained?

    One complained on this board. Not sure whether anyone else complained. I think if you want to get a group opinion, you might want to use the poll feature. I'm not sure whether it's too late to insert that into your original post here. If you start a new thread with a poll, I might be able to attach this one to it for context.

    Good idea, jscher2000. I couldn't attach a poll to this thread, but repeated the text of my first post in it. Thanks for the consideration.
