Quoting glitch

Recommended Posts

RoseGoesToYale

For the past few days, I've been experiencing a glitch where I'll highlight a word or sentence in a post and click "Quote selection", but it quotes the entire post instead and I have go back and delete everything else. Is anyone else experiencing this or is it just me?

I didn't know there was a "quote selection" option. I always just hit the "Quote" button below the message and then remove anything I don't want to quote from the resulting quote box.

The "quote selection" bubble appears after you highlight part of a post. Sometimes it doesn't come up when I want it to, but it usually does.

"Quote selection",

It just worked the way it's supposed to.

It seems to be working for me. It quoted only what I highlighted. Perhaps the equipment used is a factor? I am using a laptop.

Is does on mine (Android). If I highlight something and then hold my finger on the screen a second, it appears.

 

It occurred to me my browser may need updating, so I'll give that a try.

"Quote selection",

This was a test. Huh, I've never tried it before. This is probably one of those funky bugs IPB has. Sometimes having multiple spoilers plays silly buggers sometimes too.

Could be a bug with your device.

My tablet goes insane (a lot by the way) and quotes wrong words, the whole post, or for some reason the entire page.

Just quoted a section using my Samsung @RoseGoesToYale so it's working on my phone and my laptop.
