Forum Quotes - Aaaaaaaaaaaargh what is happening to my post?
Some of you may be wondering:
What has happened with the forum quotes?

I recently wrote a plugin that shrinks them down if they contain images or are longer than a configured length.

Clicking on the collapsed quote will make the full quote show up, and clicking again will collapse it.

Current known weaknesses:
Forum emoticons are recognised as images and therefore a small quote (below the text cut-off length) with emoticon will be shrunk.
Also, the fact that the quotes are collapsed isn't represented clearly in the gui. I may add a tag that makes the collapsed quotes stick out more.

May add more complex filtering later to recognise supported forum emoticons.

HOC, I'm confused. Are you saying that you don't see quotes anymore or what are you saying?
Want to give me more info?

I haven't heard anything from most forum members so it seems most people haven't even noticed that anything is different.

Weird... I thought a change like this would trigger a mass hysteria, rioting. Effigies of me being burned in the streets, that sort of thing...

I'm disappointed Sad

Nah. It works as well as can be expected. In long quotes, the end tags are chopped, so you get a bunch of word salad; but no big deal. Wink

OK, this quoting thing, it's broken. First, my Opera does not show any kind of quotes, then my Firefox and my Opera show reply and sub-reply all together in one reply. Now when I want...

Wait...

Aha, so I have to click it to see it.

Now that I've seen this, yes, it all works, even in Opera, although, Opera didn't show no quotes, it was shown only after I reloaded the whole page.

Test
I see nothing in Firefox- no quotes at all.
If I switch my rendering engine in Firefox to display it as IE then it works. But I would prefer to not have to do that.

Current known weaknesses:
Forum emoticons are recognised as images and therefore a small quote (below the text cut-off length) with emoticon will be shrunk.
Also, the fact that the quotes are collapsed isn't represented clearly in the gui. I may add a tag that makes the collapsed quotes stick out more.

May add more complex filtering later to recognise supported forum emoticons.

TESTING


Quotes work fine for me. I just wish it didn't quote quotes.

edit. after editing the quote no longer shows up.
