[Resolved] Problems with the "Quote" button
Edited by Jeroen van Rijn on Reason: Resolved
I haven't gotten the "quote" button in the forum to work yet. I expect if I click quote, it will copy the quote block to the "Post New Thread" window. I would also expect if I highlight some of the post it would just quote that selection, or have another button for posting selected text only.

Cheers, Timothy, I've added it to the Bug Reports list.

That "highlighted quote" idea sounds really cool, incidentally. I haven't come across a forum that has this feature, but it's something I'd almost certainly use.

This should now be fixed, considering I just used it. ;-)

Nested quotes should now also work as expected.

Gamedev.net does this, which is where I got the idea.
