The quote button just isnt there!!!!!!
No, it's now called 'Reply' and sits on the right-hand lower corner of the post which you want to quote.
Same thing, different name.
Please don't quote me on this, but I think the change from 'quote' to 'reply' is a bit misleading. There are two reply buttons but one serves a very different purpose. I think it's a bit confusing, if I say so myself.
Quite quickly reached quote quotient, quietly quit.
I agree. "Reply" vs. "Post Reply" is a non-obvious distinction and vBulletin should have left the "Quote" button with its old name.
And you can reply me on that!
I replaced the Reply button with the Quote button. When your browser clears its cache, it should show up now.
This can also be forced by opening the image in a new window, refreshing it, then refreshing the forum page.
Very interesting. Good work as always, with the quick fix, Arn!
"Quote", "Reply", whatever - I think we can all figure it out... Can't we?....
"No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public."
Nice one. However I must point out for the record that I am Canadian.
Yeah, but you can figure it out.
Yes, very good point, I see what you mean.
Thanks, arn. Now you can quote me on that!
Well, if you insist. It does bear saying multiple times.
I can quote just fine, but I was wondering if there is anyway to write "Originally Posted by EricNau" at the beginning, without writing out.
Does that question make sense? I was just wondering if there was a shortcut that I don't know about.
Just after the "[QUOTE" part, type in "=name of poster" before the next "]" which is before the rest of the quote.
Did this work?
Maybe I misunderstand you, but you don't have to write it out, and it does do it automatically for you. For instance, in this very reply, I simply hit the Quote button to your message, and the beginning of the quoted text will read "Originally Posted by EricNau" without me having to type anything.
Yep. Well done EricNau. Of course, using the Quote button does it automatically for you.
ha ha! I feel like an idiot! I never notciced the "quote" button at the bottom of everyone's reply. It's amazing, if I just hit that it does everything for me. It took me how many posts to figure that out? ha ha
Saves some time, doesn't it.
ya, wow I did it again - this makes it all the more fun!
Ah, I see what he means, i think. Yes, doing that you can quote anyone indirectly without needing to directly quote their post. For instance:
OK, but now that I've figured that out, it is still a quote button for me, what is this reply button, I'm confused.
