    More of a feature request than a bug but there is no quote button on the editor.
    I know that I can just type out the BB-code but it would be more user-friendly to just have the button there to start with.

    You are not always going to quote something actually written on the forum ;)

    Yeah, and the code tags are missing also.

    Agree, I would at the very least like quote, since I use that so often. :)

    I like the quick reply and inline edit to be as clean as possible, but have the advanced editor list an additional toolbar with additional buttons.

    That said, I wish if the system detected I am on a modern browser, and in wide-enough screen resolution, the toolbar is just 1 line, not two.

    I missed the quote button in the editor because often I quote sentences not complete postings.

    +1 to this. I was hunting for the button myself and i thought it somehow wasn't loading.
    I tend to quote part of messages and a quote button is really essential imo.

    Little OT: There is a case for stripping whitespace characters before the start and end of the quoted text. eg some firefox extensions add a lot of white space newlines before and after the quoted text within the
    Code:
     [quote bbcode.
    Edit: It appears the code automatically checks and appends any unclosed bbcode here. I think that might cause issues at some places. eg here, my intention was to just show the bbcode name as [ quote ] but the code appended the closing tag automatically creating all text following it as part of the bbcode text.

    I agree, we do need a quote button. I was looking for it last night to quote something and only then, realized that it was missing.

    Any input? I've assumed this was on the todo list, but possibly you have been waiting to see how much desire there is for it?

    My members have not all memorized the quote bbcode.

    There's support for adding buttons to the editor. But quote along with code-related buttons should ideally make an appearance.
