Issue with replying to quotes

Post  Pendrin on Sun 16 Jun 2013, 01:15

Forumotion has recently updated the text formatting window that everybody uses to post replies. It has become apparent that when you click on 'quote' on another member's post and you enter the text formatting window, you are unable to get your text out of the quote which has appeared. I've already seen some users falling into this trap, replying, and only look to have posted a quote.

There is a solution however! It's not totally obvious if you don't know your way around the nuances of this forum's engineering, but it's not hard to master and rectify either.

So, when you enter the window, you need to find the 'switch editor mode' function. Now, at this point, many of you will probably be thinking 'Erm…whut?', but to make it easier, it looks like a page with writing on it:

and after doing that, you should see some like this:

From there, all you need to do is click outside of the '[/quote]' (to the right of it) and you're done! You have managed to escape from the quote!

Forumotion know about this issue, and I imagine they are working to fix it. For the mean time, sit tight, and use this method if you're having issues.

Sorry for any inconveniences this may have caused.
