Just a suggestion could it be made to use the "reply" and when unregistered users click it it takes them to the registration screen?

That is what it does when you click on the Register To Reply it takes the guest to the registration page.

Excellent idea.

Only thing that's missing in my opinion is that after user completes registration he isn't redirected (or have option to be redirected) to thread where he clicked on button.

I guess that users would click on a button in just right places, where they want to write their answer. After they complete registration, they need to find from start place where they wanted to write their answer.

If it would be possible that users have at least option to get back to place where they clicked on a button, it would be perfect.

Also, I use register redirect mod, which redirects users to certain links of my choosing after registration. If there could be way to provide exact link for users to return to place where they clicked on a button for registration it would make much better and user friendlier experience for users.

I hope it could be done, saving exact link to post where they clicked on a button and afterward giving them option to follow it back to answer that exact post.

I do not see a viable way to do it, as there is to many variables to consider to get them back, as well if they need to verify the email before posting. Just way to many headaches to jump through.

Also there are mods that require you to read a thread before doing anything once you are active, and mods that do the same for PM's, so there is just to many variables to take into account, and screwing up everything.

I know that this is something possibly impossible

But one hopes.

I thought something in a way of using cookies to store and retrieve this information after registration. Maybe special new cookie created from this mod, that this mod searches and offers user stored link if it finds it somewhere in navbar, or somewhere else.

Anyway, if you get idea how to make this possible, it really would be great.

If I ever do find a easy way, I will look into implementing it.

Capture the referring link possibly, then get a redirect to that after submit?

Yes, but the issue become, where/how to store it, then if the site needs email verification to validate the user. Then the issue comes in with mods, that redirect users to certain places, or forces them to read a post or pm before continuing doing anything.

Just way to many variables and hurdles to try and overcome to get them back to the post.

Look at it this way, as vBulletin stock setup, if I am reading a post as a guest, then decide to reply to it, I need to register. Once I do I need to find that post again. I am sure if there was a easy way to do it, it would be in the core software already.

I get it now, because if a guest clicks on "reply" in showthread, he gets the "no permission please login" form instead, which has a option to register.

All you're doing here is making that the register form instead, saving them a click. It's more elegant than the standard redirect.

Right, it is a simple redirect That is more prevelant on the pages due to it being on each post.
