Clicking on "quote" does not bring the quote ijnto the message.  Multi-quote appears to work, even with a single quoted message.

What browser?


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Firefox 26.0 beta.  I'm now using Safari and it works so I'll count it as a browser issue.

I'm using Firefox 26.0 beta and just now quoted your post by clicking the Quote button...  so that isn't the problem.  Have you changed any settings recently?

Someone reported this issue after upgrading to IE v11. And there was another thread about this quote issue and it mention in that one that this forum needs an upgrade.

That was over a week ago and the site was updated, so that is not it.

Neither quote nor multiquote work on my Win8.1/IE11 machine.

No I haven't made any settings changes.  Funny, this time it worked for me, but I had tried several times to quote before starting the thread and hadn't seen that behavior prior to a couple of days ago.  Strange....

I was unable to find that thread to see if there was any status change of the forum.

 

But this member is still the second in a few days with a forum quote issue. So something is still wrong somewhere.

I started the thread about the issues with Internet Explorer 11. All settings were unchanged after being updated to IE 11 but I can no longer use the Quote feature here on DBSTalk and Adobe Flash Player no longer works or can be downloaded. I use Google Chrome now when I log into DBSTalk. My take is it's another classic Microsoft brain fart.

Quotes stopped working with IE11 upgrades.

 

Latest version of Chrome works just fine. And its faster than IE11 too.

You can still manually enter [ quote ]
and then the text and then [ /quote ] at the end :) (I added spaces so you could see what I mean)

Quotes are still broken with Firefox. They work with Safari.

 

On Firefox, if I click on the quote button twice it seems to work.

IE we can not help as IE has made for a lot of issues.  They really are driving people away.  Firefox is less of an issue and can very it seems based on setting or what you have be using on your machine.

Strange, I am on the same version (OS X).

 

I ran into a Firefox peculiarity the other day.  I was trying to configure a CenturyLink (ActionTec) modem/router and it wouldn't save the settings.   When I tried it with Safari, no problem.  I've seen a few other things which Firefox wouldn't handle correctly but a different browser would deal with just fine.

The OS X explains it, I am on windows7  Just some difference between the Windows and Mac versions.  I have experience similar issues as you have and it always seems to be in submitting/saving.  For example I can do anything I want at verizonwireless except submit a payment.  In IE the payment works.  At work 2 of out supplier websites are like that.  I can do anything except save changes in Firefox

Actually, it doesn't.  I'm on OSX and running Firefox 27 beta... and I'm not seeing any issues with quotes.

 

I wonder if bob is running any plugins or extensions to Firefox that might be the culprit?

Yeah, I have a lot of plugins/extensions enabled.  That might explain it.
