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: 6 days Last activity: 1 hour # 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!)
I am reminded that Daylight Savings Time begins this weekend in most of Europe, ENDS in Australia and North America waits until next weekend. Since our server runs on Central time, we won't turn our clock ahead an hour until the third of April.
