    This has the potential to be useful to many but it may also be disastrous.

    I have installed a plugin that allows you to quote others' posts.

    Unfortunately, it uses HTML and so may look weird to those not familiar with it.

    All you need to do is click "quote" under the post you intend to quote, delete the non-relevant parts of the quoted part, then write your post.

    Experiment with it in THIS thread and see what you think. If this does not make sense to people, we will put it aside. A cleaner solution will likely soon be available with no scary HTML.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Seems easy to use as an alternative to cutting & pasting the text.

    Deleting the non-relevant parts of the other person's post is a key step.

    Hi Doug,

    I think you deleted the code that was surrounding your quote from my post.

    If you do that, it's not obviously a quote.

    Delete just sentences, ignore anything surrounded by < > carats.

    And you end up with a block quote as above.

    I think this may be too tricky for those not familiar with HTML. But I will give others a chance to try it and weigh in.

    I hope you leave it, or some version. It would simplify who (and what specific statements) you are responding to. Thanks Nobugs!

    Hi belle72,

    If people don't find it confusing, it will definitely be a big help! However, lots of folks are not familiar with code and if people use it incorrectly, it can make a big sloppy mess out of a simple post.

    I know there's a need for quoting. If this one does not work out, another should be available soon.

    To try it out, click "quote" under the post that you actually want to quote from.

    If you want to quote this post by me, you click quote below my post.

    Then remove the parts of the original quote you do not need. This is essential. (Quoting the entire post will be annoying and unnecessary.)

    Please experiment in this thread.

    Ah just found this thread, definitely helpful. Thanks for the PM Nobugsonme. I wouldn't have known about  »  though I still don't know whether you need them for an anchor without a quote. I'll have to see, over in the Thanatus flavidus Simon thread.

    OK, but the italics aren't working, let's try italics or <I> capitals in the tag </I> ...?

    OK I'm going to give up on italics, bold, etc. for the time being and use * for emphasis instead.

    Nobugs, I didn't know that other than yourself, that we could also encase links the way that glitch encased the http://www.biolib.cz/en/taxon/id234460 link inside the word "here."

    So then, what other HTML features do you have enabled, even though it lools like you don't have the italics feature enabled?

    Also, in addition to the post-quote feature that you enabled, could you enable the regular quote feature so that other things can be quote-formatted with the forum's software other than post quotes?

    You can use HTML in your forum posts.

    Tags should be enclosed in carats < />

    em = italics
    str = bold
    a href= " " for a link

    (To others reading this-- if this is all greek to you, I can't go into more detail. If I type it out, it will just become code, if you know what I mean.)

    glitch,
    the test post option isn't something built in but I will look into it.
    thanks for the suggestion!

    And... the "quote" function is working again.

    (It was down after the software upgrade last week.)

    Still working on the IE6 issues...

    Yes-- click quote copy and paste to a text editing program on your computer; repeat for each post you want to quote, and then copy and paste it back in.

    By the way, remember to delete the part of the quoted material which isn't relevant. This keeps threads from getting very, very long, which causes users to scroll excessively.

    A cleaner solution will likely soon be available with no scary HTML.

    Can't it be setup so you simply highlight what you want to quote? Think I've seen it that way elsewhere and it's alot easier than quoting everything and then going through the HTML and editing out stuff and btw I still see the "scary HTML"

    This is quoted by using quote function found on left margin and then using the return key to put an extra line line to make it easier to read.

    This is quoted by highlighting what you want, copy&paste, highlight and then click on "quote" function response area.

    Yes-- Lou makes a good point that you can copy and paste, highlight the copied material and click "quote" in the WYSIWYG window and it will block indent your quotation.

    This is easier in many cases and allows you to avoid having to remove extraneous material from the original post. You lose the link back to the source post, but in the same thread, that's not such an issue.

    That's what we have for the time being.

    Right now I am in the middle of migrating the site to a new host which will make things much faster and avoid the error messages during high traffic periods. This is the highest priority as it allows us to function, plain and simple.

    That's only the beginning and not the end of improvements which can be made, but what Richard requests is not possible with the current software. I wish it were a matter of thinking of a better way and making it happen but that's not really how software works unless someone here can program it for us. And even then, it might not be an option.

    Better quoting is definitely something on the list of desired features.

    Moving to new software is still on the horizon but has been pushed back a bit due to issues with the available options. Each has limitations and it is harder than you think to choose the optimal system while keeping the costs manageable.

    I also want to add that some use the quote function but don't delete anything from the original post.

    This can drastically lengthen the length of the "thread" -- which matters to readers on phones and other devices-- and doesn't usually make a big difference to comprehension.

    I would discourage people from quoting if you are not able to quote selectively via one of the methods above. In lieu of quoting, you can always make the person you're responding to (eg "I see what the OP means," or "but Sally*, baking soda doesn't kill bed bugs.")

    (*there is no Sally.)

    This is quoted by using quote function found on left margin and then using the return key to put an extra line line to make it easier to read.

    I don't see a "quote function" on the "left margin". I only see it above the copy box. I'm running a Windows machine.

    This is quoted by highlighting what you want, copy&paste, highlight and then click on "quote" function response area.

    Thanks Lou. But the quote is not attributed to you, although I thought I followed your instructions.

    Yes, sorry, the Quote is at the bottom of the posted paragraph and gives attribution to the person you are quoting.
    I was thinking about the Edit function. And you can edit for a given amount of time. I wrote the last line some time after my original post.

    This is using "quote" function from the icons in the box.

    If you use Lou's method, you have to type, "X said," before the quote. Sometimes there's only one post so it's self-explanatory.

    The Green Sticky "FAQs about the forums (How to use the forums)" will answer some questions.

    Any which aren't answered, feel free to ask in a new thread and I will address them.

    Note there's also a brand new Green Sticky post for testing your forum posting skills, and you can post test messages there AND ask questions-- but only about functions (not about bed bugs or other matters).

    Hi Doug,
    I think you deleted the code that was surrounding your quote from my post.
    If you do that, it's not obviously a quote.
    .

    It's a bit strange but I think it works testing testing

    Yes!

    Once you hit the quote link, the editing box will load and you will see that there's some code at the beginning and end which is between <> marks. (I can't repeat it here or it will be read as code.)

    You can delete text from what people said (and should, to avoid really long quotes), but you don't want to mess with or delete any of the stuff between <> marks.

    This has the potential to be useful to many but it may also be disastrous.

    Experiment with it in THIS thread and see what you think. If this does not make sense to people, we will put it aside.
