I was just checking the issue this thread refers to, to see if I could check the solved button, and I thought I should report what I was seeing on my screen. It's odd. It may or may not be helpful. See attachment.
ok, where? The dark background behind the content wrapper?
Just attached a pic of the button.
Yup, yup. The HTML title tag is wrong.
Once you can confirm the bug you reported in this board is fixed, mark it as solved. I can then easily spot such topics and move them away.

Yes sir it works now - I even read the little number at the bottom of the forum like I was supposed to before I tried it. :+1:
Breaking a quote up... press quote, place cursor where you want to
Oh - that felt good. Makes me want to do it again.
break the quote, press shift+Enter, it's just magic. ;)
That would really help the problem too. Nice!

Sure. I'll take anything I can get. :)
Maybe we could offer the ability to strip quotes if they're more than 2 levels down, i.e. no more than a quote and a child quote are allowed... That way, we maintain context, and avoid pyramids entirely... Is that better, now..?
See to me that's easier to read and it's sequential and clear. Easy to work with for newbies.
Anyway, what I offered still holds:
- adding a "show this quote" button for quotes below the first level,
- using e-mail-like quotes in the post area, so that you can easily delete the quotes, without having to look for quote tags, e.g.
> > Quote: Arantor
> > Nice...
> Quote: Nao
> Hello, world.
I know for a fact that new forum users (and some old ones that should know by now) don't seem to be able to figure out how to quote properly. I believe that is one reason they just click "quote" and proceed to add to whatever they get, because they don't have a clue how to break it up. I've even written tutorials on it. That's one more problem with nested quotes - it looks like a logic puzzle to a lot of people when viewed in the raw. Hell, I've even run across some that I wanted to break up that were confusing to work on, they had so much going on.
