Re: System not doing quotes properly


Not sure what went wrong but I inserted the missing start of quote tag for the second quote.

Re: System not doing quotes properly


I fixed it before reading this post.

For the IT guys all I did was add the opening {quote} tag for the start of the second quote on the two posts I edited.

Re: System not doing quotes properly


Could it be related to double quotes in the same post? The posts I fixed could possibly have originally been quote within a quote.

Re: System not doing quotes properly


The first post you quoted in your post has a random half of a quote bbcode within it, which was caused the messiness. Don't know why it's there, but I would assume by accident

Re: System not doing quotes properly


More than just post #43. Several before it also have the issue. What i did to fix a couple of them was to add the apparently missing opening quotes BB code. The end quote does appear to end an actual quote from a previous thread.

Re: System not doing quotes properly


The few I fixed, I just removed the extra end quote marker.

I quoted yesterday and noticed the post quoted was something else and read like it was from the CBR, so I started over and it worked right the next time. I went looking for the posts that had come up and couldn't find it so it must be from further in the past, so it wasn't anything I did.

Re: System not doing quotes properly


I can't figure out the why with what I got so far. I'll need a couple more examples to look at. If anyone gets me one, I'll as be interested in knowing what device and browser you are using
