Ok, I was just about to reply to someone's post about their failing NB Fan on their A7N266-E as I thought I had that board. Turns out I had the A7N266-C.

Anyways, after realizing that I had a different board I decided to cancel the post... There is no cancel button. I guess the only way to cancel it is to click on the 'Forum' link which will take you back to the Forum Index.

While it's not really anything important, it would be a nice feature to have.

I don't know of any forum software that uses this. Just click the back button and you're back to reading instead of replying to the message.

Yeah, I guess I could do that. I guess I'm too used to the Delphi forums. :)

I had the same problem starting out here, but since the navigation and everything is different here, I guess it makes sense to not have a cancel button when you can just hit "back".

I miss cancel. It was like a security blanket that I didn't accidentally hit "Post" instead ;)

I've gotten so use to this format that I trip all over myself looking for the short cuts that don't exist over at Delphi now. :)

Yes, but that doens't cancel the post when you decide to change your mind. :P

I decided I'll just either hit 'back' on the web browser, or click on the 'Forums' link to go back to the Forum index.

It would be pretty trivial to add a cancel button if that makes you guys feel better. Personally, I just hit my back or close tab mouse gesture and move along.

Lets all focus on the Reply To: function. That would make a WORLD of difference.

It'd be easier to get people to use the existent feature than it'd be to stick in a new feature, wouldn't it?
