Hello! I was trying to use the quote feature on post http://forum.scubatoys.com/showthread.php?p=69849#post69849 and found that it does not place the tags in the message box. I am able to quote other posts, just not that particular one.

The reason for that is the post you are trying to quote had a left over /quote in it. That poster quoted something, but then edited it and deleted some stuff - but didn't delete the end quote at the beginning, so if you go to quote the post with an error, you'll have to do a bit of house keeping, and just delete his [/quote] in your post, add additional {quote] at the beginning, etc. Just experiment with deleting the pieces of code you don't want and you can get it to work out.


But since it was just a goof up on that post - I went in and edited it and took out the orphaned {/quote] so it will work now with no problems.

The [noparse] code makes it very easy to post the actual code without having to resort to coding tricks.
