    Default Quotes?

    what has happened to "quotes"? Before if I called up a quote it was highlighted. Now it seems it just appears in inverted commas.

    Do you mean in the displayed reply (as shown above) or in the editor box while you're composing your reply?

    If the latter, maybe your choice of editor has changed? (User Control Panel/Edit Options, at the bottom of the page)

    I've always used the Standard Interface, which shows everything in text with embedded codes so I don't know how the others actually look... but I'm pretty sure there's a WYSIWYG version which would, I imagine, display quoted text, etc. the same as it looks in the final post.
    I may be weird, but I'm saving up to become eccentric.

    If you look at my entry in "Nothing to do with woodwork" thread entitled "We won, We won" you will see the quote is shown just in square brackets and not highlighted.

    [The game where 3 blokes push 2 blokes up one blokes bum[/quote]

    In AFL they score behinds.

    I'm a dyed in the wool rugby union fan and the only thing wrong with living down here is they way Channel Seven treats rugby. If it's AFL I even know when a player wipes his nose but rugby is only shown when it's an international, only when the Wallabies are playing and even then the cretins put it on in the early hours of the morning.

    Jerry

    You mean this.

    Well i think the [ quote=jerryc;986447 ] first then [ /quote ] at the final end without the gaps i have entered in.

    Cheers

    Right Jerry. You edited the original post and deleted the first part of the VB formatting, IE [quote

    Without that bit it does not work. HTH.

    Have had a look at that post Jerry and what had happened is that you cut the quote tag off when you shortened the message.

    It should have had [quote=Lignum;983127] at the start but you had deleted the bulk of it only leaving [

    I have fixed the post in question for you has well.
    Cheers

    Thank you gentlemen for the prompt and informative replies.
    And to Fixer DJ, who even went the extra step and fixed my mistake
