Suddenly, quoting doesn't work
« Topic Start: November 27, 2012, 05:44:41 PM »
Is it just me for whom the Quote link isn't working? I mean the little link above someone's post. This is true for FF 16.0.2 (current), Chrome Version 23.0.1271.64 m (current) and IE 9.0.8.

It's true at home and at work, and I use a different profile at work.

Weird. It's obviously working for others. I did look through my profile's settings. I don't see anything related to this.

But you can quote others? I wonder if I'm being punished for something. I didn't think I'd been a D-bag. But who knows.

Huh. Others seem to be doing okay. Have you quoted anyone else today?

Quick reply quoting not working but if you right click on the quote button and open in a new tab/window the quote will appear in the reply section.

Quick reply quote not working, also that little plus thing where you hit plus and then hit reply.

Not working for me either, I thought it might be a work thing when I tried to quote Minty earlier, but I suppose not.

Quoting works if you turn off the quick reply in your profile under "Look and Layout" settings.

Quick reply is worthless anyway.

:roll:

 :shrug:

I turned it off years ago, can't remember any advantage but there were a number of disadvantages.  The "reply" button is readily available and just as fast.

You want my lazy finger to scroll for an extra half second? Quick replay for the win!

Ah, it's good for people like me who use their tablets during gameday threads, I can't type very quickly so I like being able to save an extra step when replying to the thread.

I was having the "quote" issue as well.   I thought it was just me.   I'm so disappointed.

I tried to quote this morning and it was a no go.

I thought it was a Firefox issue.   I was about to try Maxthon!  :mg:
