What is Quick Reply? How do I turn Quick Reply on or off?

Quick Reply is an option in some journal styles which allows you to post comments and replies without loading a new page. When Quick Reply is active, the commenting link creates a box where you can enter your comment, choose the icon, and preview and post the comment using the appropriate buttons. If you want to open the full comment reply page with extra features, use the More options... button.

You can turn off Quick Reply using the console. Enter the command set disable_quickreply 1 and then click the Execute button. This option can be useful if your browser does not handle JavaScript correctly, or if you simply prefer to open a separate page to enter your comments. To turn Quick Reply on again, enter the command set disable_quickreply 0 at the console. Console settings apply wherever you are on the site, as long as you are logged in.
