When Is The Quote System To Be Fixed?

Recommended Posts

I feel your frustration. I've only just now got the knack/technique to keep that from happening but 1 out of 10 still screws up. Believe we are due for a software update sometime soon and hope it will be resolved then.

Best way is to click on the top left icon above the edit box to switch the "BBCode Mode" from fancy WYSIWYG mode, to boring old plain text mode.

But at least in boring old plain text mode, you can control the editing more easily. wink.png

The main problem I have is that on many occasions the quoted post appears two, three or even four times in the reply!

Trying to delete the extraneous quotes is not only time consuming, but unless you get it exactly right the bit you want to keep goes as well!

Generally speaking if what one wishes to add to the forum is worth saying then a little effort to do it is not a burden?

As has been said switch to plain text mode an as long as the beginning and end quotes are correct it works OK.

Yes, I can click that button and then it's easier to delete the extraneous quotes; but it shouldn't be necessary.

This never used to happen before the last upgrade.

What is the point of upgrades if all they do is make posting more difficult and more frustrating?

As George said, there's another upgrade coming soon. Hopefully the suppliers have taken on board some of these criticisms.

What I don't like is the way the software automatically deletes a blank line after the quoted text.

I'm forever having to add a blank line with a few spaces just to get the blank line displayed.

I wonder why they do that? It's not as if a blank line uses up much bandwidth! biggrin.png

Another upgrade to fix the problems caused by the last upgrade which was to fix the problems caused by the previous upgrade etc., etc. ad infinitum!

Still, nice work for someone!
