When I reply to the first post in a thread (or any other time) I can't see the post I'm replying to. That's a standard feature of vBulletin, and would be really handy. Any chance of adding it?

Two options at the moment, use the quick reply so you can scroll up/down if it means you cannot currently see the first post. Or you can quote the original post, then delete it before submitting your reply.

With quick reply you can't insert links and such. You can't quote the first post of a thread.

You can quote the topic of a thread after a few replies are posted. We only block the first couple because some people were quoting the whole thing in the first reply - what a waste of bits, bytes and patience.

I tend to start my reply in a new tab so I can refer back to the OP if I need to

I reply in a new tab now too, it's just inconvenient.

timmmay: I reply in a new tab now too, it's just inconvenient.

Especially on a phone.
