    BBS Bugs?

    Over the past day or two it seems like the "Reply with Quote" button is not working properly - it will copy the text as a quote but that quote does not include quotes within the original post as it used to do. In other words"Reply with Quote" no longer includes embedded quotes.

    I first noticed this in a reply to one of my posts which included my words but not the quote in my post. I confirmed the result by clicking on "Reply with Quote" to my post and getting the exact same result.

    P.S. If this thread catches we could make it a sticky instead of starting a new thread every time one of us notices a problem?

    P.P.S. Totally unrelated and certainly not a bug but if you want to go to the most recent post in a thread add "-new/" right after the thread number like this example for this thread:

    BBS Bugs?

    There are a dozen threads here that I am always checking so rather than try to navigate through the menu structure here I have compiled a list of hot links to those threads with "-new/" tacked on to the end of the URL. I also included links to my favorite forums.

    BTW this tip is a great workaround for one of the oldest BBS bugs here: clicking on links and buttons that by all means should go to the Forum Index page go instead to the Activity Stream window which I do not findto be as useful as the sometimes elusive "New Posts" search page:

    I never use that feature. When I want to quote, I cut and paste, and insert as quote. never leaves anything out.

    I always use the multi-quote button and as far as I know, it never included quotes within quotes.

    I just used the "reply with quote" to quote g1 discussing responding by using the multiple quotes and it seems to have worked. You can quote me on that.

    That is the way the reply with quote feature has always worked for me so I have believed that was the planned normal behavior.
