Forum thread reply on the same page
When looking at a forum thread, if clicking the "Reply this message" button, make the edition box appear at the bottom of the message we are replying to, instead of showing it in a new page. This should make it easier for the students to contribute to the forum, and hopefully load the server a little less.
Use the common folder for AJAX functions (main/inc/ajax) and make sure it doesn't break any existing feature.
Don't hesitate to spend some time first cleaning the forum code. It is very old.
