Quoting Functionality

Recommended Posts

DFRESH,

Any insight on what happened to the functionality to quote a single post multiple times with ease?

i.e. you used to be able to hit "quote" on a dude's lengthy post, then intersperse your own comments by just using "[ quote ]" and "[ /quote ]" tags (minus the spaces). It enabled you to speak to many points made within one post in a coherent way.

Am I just too dumb to figure out how to to do that in the new-look forums?

Thanks again for all the work on the site, you are a great American! :beer:

I'll try to look at it for a few minutes tonight, leaving for a tdy in the morning. If the commercial airliner has Wi-Fi I'll see what I can do tomorrow.

I see what it is doing, and I'm not sure how to fix it yet. But, it lead me down a path to find a mod that allows people to select lines while reading, right click them and choose "quote" or "@member" (sts), and it will move that specific text to a quote container in the fast reply window. Using "@member" (sts) is similar to a facebook "tag". Considering throwing that mod in on a test basis.

Had the same issue. I did the standard I don't know how this shit works thing, and clicked every icon possible. Turns out the light switch "BBCodeMode " icon works.

My quote buttons don't work at all. I click "Quote" and it drops to the reply container, but it's blank. No auto-populated quote box. MultiQuote doesn't work either.

I've had this issue for several months.

Any ideas?

With BBCodeMode off, I can get it to work. With BBCodeMode on, no workie.

I can turn BBCodeMode off, click QUOTE, and then turn BBCodeMode back on to make the quote container look correct.

IPBoard is about to release a major upgrade to their forum software. I imagine a lot of little queertrons will go away (and others will develop) as a result of the upgrade.
