Hm, good thing to have. Just edit the file templates/default/post_form.htm. There, take a look in how I manage to know when is a reply and when is a new topic, and use some freemarker expression to write the proper message to the user.
Just to make your job more easy, you can use variable "isNewPost" or check if some instance of a topic exists. Something like

Here's the steps:
1.edit the file templates/default/post_form.htm, find the following:
change it into
2.add a new key "PostForm.replyTopic" in jforum_xx_XX.properties
BTW. If you want to do more, you can add a PrivateMessage.replyTopic for distinguish starting or replying a Private Message and follow the same step to finish it. [originally posted on jforum.net by andowson]
Hello, I have 2 simple questions (bare with me, I am new to this):
a) Where do i find which version of the Jforum is installed on our site?
b) We have disabled anonymous posts because of the huge spam traffic... However, when a visitor without an account reads a post, there is no "post reply" button at the bottom. If they wish to reply, they need to figure out that they must select the register tab on the top, etc...
Can we enable the appearance of the button down below that would then lead users to the registration page right away?
Is there another way to keep anonymous posts and avoid spam?
Thanks for your help! [originally posted on jforum.net by jiji]
