Andy has done an amazing job with this. For guests it strips multi and reply to your set character limit, and members just the reply button, allowing multi quote for full quoting where members want to pull content apart and respond. Really well developed and works flawlessly. Simple is often the best. Great job Andy.
I'm firmly of the opinion that with the elective multi quote feature & the highlight text & quote that the non-elective quote via reply is a total unnecessary PITA & wastes screen real estate on our image heavy forum. This add-on is going to save lots of grief on our forum where needless quoting is very unpopular.
