Quotes. I've skimmed through this too long topic and, frankly, can't understand many of the complaints (meaning I literally don't understand the issues).

My only concern is that I can no longer see who made the original post or click on a snapback to read a post in it's original context. I don't like to just assume a quote is unedited by the person quoting it.

Even though the feedback forums are being phased out, I would like to say I'm not upgrading until quoting is redone or reverted.


1. Who said the feedback forums are being phased out? :smile:

2. What specifically are you displeased with?

Another things I dislike is that Code and Quote add a huge space between all the sentence. Of cousre submitting this just result in "Not a bugs." Absolutely hate the new Quote and Code system, I want it to be back the way it was in 3.3. I hate going back and remove space every single time I used Code or Quote. Also all post now look more messy then before in 3.3.

Funnily enough the entire reason this was added was because people asked for it.

I guess the Quote gap on top and bottom is ok, but the Code one is a mess. Gap on every single sentence. But I guess we talking about Quote here.

I can look at finding a way to add in the meta data. It's always a challenge with a real time editor because if I add a DIV with this information, there's nothing stopping you from tabbing to it and removing it. Or breaking it, etc.

I have a dream where one day editors are judged not by the quality of their backports but of the content of their original creators :tongue: :smile:

Four One score and seven years ago, BBSes were becoming the rage and editors were very basic, having very few frills to them...

This is what I hate ( :smile:) in new quotes:

When you try to copy and paste a quote, 'ipsBlockquote' class disappears and this quote loses appearance and not parsed as quote.

Dear god, finally I find someone else showing the issues I'm having. This seriously looks like a broken feature on forums, not an "upgrade". Please make this an option, or revert entirely. Not sure why anyone would want it the way its set up now...

People break when they try to copy and paste quotes? Ouch, that's harsh.

Yes, it's harsh. On my board are very often discussions about politics and there is quoting VERY often used. So it's almost impossible quote whole posts, every member quotes only part of message or split whole quote to smaller parts.

I would assume this is actually still being worked on....

Good.

But I have to say, this topic begins to be little obsolete because in few last weeks QUOTE has been improved in many ways. I think only this bug is annoying.
