Quote to PM?


Best Answer Brandon Wedgeworth , 29 July 2013 - 07:01 PM

As of about a minute ago, it should be back for everyone who has access to it (I believe it is limited to DBSTalk Club members).  The issue was with a single skin.  If you are using the Executive2_testing skin, it wasn't showing up.  It was on the others.  i recached the Executive2_testing skin/theme and it is now showing up there.  you might need to refresh to see it.

I know it disappeared for a while, but some folks I know have it back. Is it supposed to be working across the board? If so, I'm not seeing it using FireFox 22 on my Win 7 desktop, or using Safari on my iPad.

It is back for me...  I'm running Firefox beta 23, but I don't think that has anything to do with it.

As long as you are a DBSTalk Club member, 'Quote into PM' should always be there at the bottom of the post, between "Report" and "MultiQuote".

 

But ......  "Quote into PM" is not there if it is YOUR post you are looking at.

 

Might that be the problem?

I am a DBSTalk Club Member, but no Quote to PM option, as you can see below. I even deleted all my cookies and restarted the browser. :scratchin

The answer is: Get a Mac, run Safari or Chrome.... :)  

 

Now, you can mark this as "Solved", and you may as well hit "like", too....

See the first post, re: Safari. :P

 

I'm guessing it's a snafu with my account privileges.

Yes, well now in seriousness (and some compassion :)  ) the two Safaris are on different OSes.

Running Chrome now, under Windows 7. Still no "Q2PM" option.

 

So it's not the browser. :shrug:

So sort of on the same subject - where is this "Best Answer" thing I have seen and someone else mentioned "Solved".  Are those buttons you guys are seeing?

In some forums we have the button/option to "Mark Solved"...  Moderators generally always have the option... otherwise only the thread starter has it.  Basically intended for threads/forums where a question is asked and answered to mark the best answer.  Those of us seeing the button are still learning how/when to use it as sometimes the first answer isn't the best answer... so I usually wait a bit before I mark something to give the thread starter a chance to mark the answer that best fits the question posed.

Only the Topic starter or staff can mark a post best answer and thread becomes solved.

We have the opportunity to change the "solution" if a better answer comes along ... or remove the solved marking. It is generally active in "help" forums for thread starters and mods and in some other forums for mods only. I like it ... in the old software we'd have questions asked and answered and then the thread rambled on losing the answer. This way one can highlight a post as the answer and people see that quickly (and can still read the thread).

Well, then, James' post above (18) could well be marked the solution to Q. 15!

We can only mark a post as solution for the thread .. not for individual posts within a thread. :)
