It would be nice to have the functionality that when you modify your own post in a thread that it will use AJAX in the current post instead of going to the post2 page, like the way vBulletin works.

Quick edit?

Edit: Quickly edited
The way it's meant to be

Maybe it came across wrong, I mean make it easier to decyper the quick edit function as most people will just click modify as its the first thing to attract your attention, maybe remove the current modify function the way it is and set 'modify' to use the quick edit functionality and have a 'Use advanced editor' option on the screen also.

Does that make sense?

There's already a discussion regarding the fact that I'm going to remove the Quick Edit button, and instead turn the Modify area into a mini-menu with Quick Edit and Full Edit options. (Being set by default to Quick Edit, but if you open the link in a new tab it'll go to Full Edit. That's just me...)

Same will happen with the Quote and Like buttons. I'm just... Not there yet!

There are arguments both ways about doing this, actually, and even about hybridising the two so that there's only one edit function, AJAXively allowing for everything in one hit, even more esoteric things like attachments.

Though that makes it harder to extend.
