Hello aramis,

Thank you for placing the section of my topic post of T20 THB World Development Step 4 Climate & T20 World Mapthat dealt with not being able to use the quote feature in Win 7 to the appropriate forum.

An small addition is that I also, but not to the extent I am now, experienced the quote feature not working in Windows XP.

Morning PDT Otto Harkaman,

Edit: I never noticed the multi-quote option before, is it by default multi-quoting? I noticed when I click on it, it turns run and shows a minus sign.
The Quote button to my knowledge when replying to a page with a quote and a reply using the Quote button opens the reply window with only the reply and not the quoted section.

IIRC the multi-quote button has been on the page for as long as I've been posting, I joined back on Aug. 21, 2002, and is for manually linking multiple quotes.

Oh I see now so that you can quote different postings, I never saw or realized what it was before.

Are you using the same type of browser on both Win7 and WinXP? I think you said Firefox? I still think it is a browser issue or a combination of the interaction of the bulletin board and the browser not the whole computer, but I could be wrong.

Again you can see it didn't include my quote from the other posting, just your reply.

When I have had the problem, it has been on a Win7 machine using Firefox (although I seem to recall that I tried once using IE, and still had the problem). I have not discovered a pattern, just that sometimes when I try to quote it will open up a blank text-field without the quote(s). I have noticed that in some cases (thru experimentation) that if I am multi-quoting, sometimes removing one of the particular quotes in the multi-quote will solve the problem.

So I am thinking that maybe certain quotes have a certain character/code or something in the field that the browser does not like; removing the particular quote with the offending character/code solves the problem.

But I unfortunately do not know what the character/code that causes the problem is.

Thak you for the reply.

I took a while to catch on to the feature of quote and multiple quotes way back when.

In Windows XP the browser being used was Internet Explorer (IE). I have both the latest IE and Firefox browsers on my Windows 7 computer. I'm using Firefox because IE and my ISP's web site do not like playing with each other. The intermittent problem has occurred in both browsers. From experience and advise from the gent who is in the business of building computers for a living most of the other browsers do not like me and cause all sorts of havoc. With IE not playing well I've been using Firefox mainly for replies on the forums.

Board strips quotes when quoting. Manually, it's doable.
