Compact Quotes (Scrolling DIV) (version 1.0) - Simple addition to EXTRA.css to give you more compact quotes.

Though not the only solution to this, I have seen people ask about compact quotes before. I guess there's three methods to quotes:

1) Display the entire quote (this is default XenForo behaviour)
2) Collapse the quote (a bit like SPOILER tags. A lot of people do this with large quotes anyway).
3) Make the quote div scrollable

The latter is what the below tiny CSS addition achieves.

max-height: 400px;
overflow: auto;
All you would do is change the max-height...

This scrolling all bbcode quote.

If you change the CSS by:
Rich (BB code):
.bbCodeQuote blockquote
max-height: 200px;
overflow: auto;
only scrolling the textarea, not the xxx said... area.

Change the red text as needed.

For work in XenFacil's Quote, add in EXTRA.css, also
Rich (BB code):
body .messageText .bbCodeQuote.hasAvatar blockquote {
    overflow-x: auto !important;
    overflow-y: auto !important;
    max-height: 200px;
Change the blue text as needed.
