Well I hope this would be the appropriate forum to post in. :)
This is a quick and very easy template mod. And very convenient

What Does it Do:
This will move the post icons up above the message area when your editing a thread, creating a new thread, or posting an advance reply.

I'm not sure about you, but I type very fast and when I'm done typing something I would normally just hit [TAB] then [Enter] to send the message. I'm so used to that. Now with vB3 you have to tab twice. Like I said very simple to do, and convenient if you ask me.

Before and after screenshots attached.

Hope you enjoy!
Note: Make Sure To Click the install button. And post your comments. Thanks! :)

Another way you can get around the "I want to use the tab key to go straight to the 'submit' button without going into the icons" problem is to set the tabindex value to 1000 for rb_icon_id_0 in the posticons template and also for rb_iconid_$iconid in the posticonbit template.

To complex for people that are new to moding if you ask me.

Perhaps... I guess it might be easier to just use the "search in templates" feature to replace all instances of:

id="rb_iconid_$iconid" tabindex="1"

with:

id="rb_iconid_$iconid" tabindex="1000"

and replace all instances of:

id="rb_iconid_0" tabindex="1"

with:

id="rb_iconid_0" tabindex="1000"

You know, this was bugging me too. More because I'm just used to the VB2 layout and also because I type a title, a message then click submit and go..

DOH!

Forgot to put an icon :P

Thanks for the mod :)

You could just hit Alt-S to send your message, but oddly enough there aren't too many people who know about this shortcut.
