Better Quoting Support for the Forum?
« on: October 21, 2007, 01:28:51 PM »
On the Opera forums there is a really neat feature, "quick quote". You select the text of part of a persons post, then click quick quote and the correct BBCode with the selected fragment is inserted in the quick reply. The quote function here pastes the whole quote; if you want a conversation-style you end up manually cutting up the reply and copy/pasting [quote...] blocks. Anyone know if quick quote functionality is available for Simple Machines?
