Is it just me, or do your quotes not show quotes sometimes? It seems like about half the time I quote someone in a reply, the quote box itself appears in my post, but there's no text in it. Even if i click the box nothing drops down. I just started noticing it a couple of days ago. Anyone else?

This will be the quotiest thread ever
Occasionally if I start typing really fast after hitting reply it won't load the quote for a second or two and then I've typed nonsense. Are you clicking the Quote button or the reply button?

Me neither....but....Are you clicking the Quote button or the reply button?
If you hit the Quote button you bring up a pop up box that has the quotes in there you can choose from...

Also wondering...is it just happening on your phone or on the pc too?

This is what I'm talking about. There;s the quote box but nothing in it. Is Tony's quote there for anyone else?

Well, there's a period in there. I think Henry was trying to be amusing.

You do have to be careful - Pressing the Quote button brings up a dialog that you can select what you want to quote. Pressing the Reply button starts the reply with the quote in it.

Perhaps you're hitting the Quote button but not selecting a quote to insert?

Lol does anyone really think I don't know how to use the most rudimentary functions of my own forum, especially the add ons I installed. Don't answer that.

Sorry, Kev, that was me. I actually tried to create a blank box, but had to include a character to vet the box to appear. The software would hide the box when only spaces and carriage returns were included.

I'm just testing, and it's working as expected on my REALLY slow connection at the minute.
