Quoting problems

Wed Jul 13, 2016 10:31 am

PS-- We all should be using the "quote2" format for quoting-- beginning the citations with [quote2="......"] and then finishing with usual format command for closing the quote2 function.

What's wrong with the regular [quote= function?

It doesn't work. It never worked. That's why Zero introduced quote2. Look at the post by Scientific Socialist. The only quoted part that is distinguishable from the main text is the part I cited using quote2. SS's quote from my post is not distinguishable as a quote from another source.

That will be due to your style unfortunately. It displays just fine for me. If you want to alter your style you can do so under the user control panel > board style.

I'm not sure there's anything I can do about the fact that when you push "quote" to quote a person's post, the default quoting style of [quote= is selected.

Let's see: Just selected the "quote" function that's in the upper right hand corner of every post. There is nothing in board preferences or board style that seems to relate to the display of quoted sections of text.

In the above post, there is no offset, or distinguishing display of the quoted text.

If you change your style to "Simple Dark Red" this is what you will see.

Thanks. I'll keep that in mind, only........I don't care for any of the other skins.

I just installed a new skin called Blue Moon that is fairly similar to Aeroblack which is the one I believe you are using, please give that one a try.

Unfortunately I can't do anything about the quoting problem.
