    one more test by using the "quick reply" option with the "quote message in reply" button checked

    similar results...

    Moy - I am intrigued as to what is causing this issue. I have sent a support ticket to vBulletin who are looking into it for me.

    All I did to the post above (as Jan_h) correctly says, was to add the " to either side of the person who you are quoting. Doing this makes it work... weird eh

    Now that is spooky!...

    The first time I looked at Moys post, the quote she did looked like Jan's does just above hers... but when I looked for the 2nd time after John's post ^; Moys looks like it does now :shock:

    Now, I know it's getting late, I've had a couple of pints, I'm blonde, female and a drummer.... but I know what I saw!! :lol:

    mmm, and if you scroll down when you're replying to a thread, the quotes look the same...

    Either way, it doesnt bother me too much.... it's quoted, it's clear.... all happy :) :lol: :cool: ;)

    Hey John that's weird............when I left the post the " quote " marks were there and now they have gone.

    The "quotes" are defo on this as well....................well at the moment.

    No, they are not on there Moy. The quotes need to be around the name of the person you are quoting.

    If you edit your post, you should see no quotes around my name... if you add them, then the quote box will display correctly.

    This should be done automatically, I am still not sure why this isn't working properly.

    I have now had a reply from vBulletin technical support about this.

    They are very helpful, but in this case have asked me to do a few things I am not too sure about. It might be that we have to live with this for a little while longer sorry...:(

    Further testing ensues....:)

    ... and at long last, after speaking to the original developer of the tMP303 style, he managed to sort it for me so that all the quote functions work in each of the styles...:tup

    Hopefully we can now consider this matter closed.

    Quotes - partial and total

    Hello there!

    I've noticed that some people seem to be able to partially quote from previous posts whereas I only seem to be able to quote the entire post!

    Is there a way to just quote the relevant part of the post in question without having to show the whole lot?

    Advice would be appreciated.

    I do believe you need to type or copy/paste the additional text...:tup

    if you use the "quote"button in a post, you can edit the text you want to quote as much as you want. (this does not work when you use the "quick reply" button instead of the "quote" button)

    As John says, you can also copy-paste the txt that you want to quote into an empty message, and then "wrap"this text in quote-tags. This is done by selecting the text and pressing the litlle icon with the yellow text balloon

    Once you've clicked on the "Quote" button and have the text displayed, you can then highlight and delete any sections that you do not want to show. Alternatively, if you want the whole text to show, but to draw attention to a particular section, you can mark it as "bold" etc.
