The old, confusing [quotehead], [quotemid] and [quoteend] tags have been replaced with hopefully less confusing [quote] and [/quote] tags. To quote text, bookend it with them two. To include a user's name, add it into the "quote" tag. F'rinstance, use "[quote CRZ]" and "[/quote]" and the familiar will come up. (Also, this is now the new behaviour for clicking on "Quote" when you reply.) Or is this description too confusing? :) ©CRZ Promote this thread!

I had been doing a COPY TEXT, "CRZ said:" "[qoute]" PASTE TEXT "[/qoute]" in order to avoid the Italics issue, which looked like: CRZ said: Or is this description too confusing? :) And Marking Out Cool. Note: Quote is misspelled on purpose as I don't know those fancy HTML tricks like Chris. Slashwrestling.com Wienerville

Originally posted by Fross T. Freeze I kinda prefer the old way. If I put the old (head), (mid), (end) tags in there myself, will they still work? Originally tested by DJ FrostyFreeze Yup, looks that way! FREE KOBE

emma Cherries > Peaches Since: 1.8.02 From: Phoenix-ish Since last post: 32 days Last activity: 6 hours # 7 Posted on 23.7.03 1807.38 I just had something odd happen -- maybe a weird interaction between quote & link keywords? (Or maybe I'm just being dense & missing something obvious.) Copy the following (resulting) line, paste it into a "create a post" window, & hit "Preview Reply". I see confused ugliness...

No urgency needed on my behalf -- I worked around it already, using "a href" directly. (A linefeed, eh? That's interesting!)
Do we HAVE another one from you? PM me and remind me what it is, 'cause I can't find it. I suppose I'll post the rest of them in a few weeks (unless there's any I REALLY want to hold onto in reserve for later).
