That is actually a great idea this way someone could highlight click reply and it moves the text to the reply field at the bottom of any given forum page and one could simply highlight any part of any post in the thread and also do it with multiple quotes in one reply very easy using the reply button for each post that the user wants to reply to in one single post. Nice suggestion majdi and great follow up james. I now support this 100%The way I would do this is to integrate it with the reply function. If you have highlighted text before you click reply then the text you highlighted is quoted, if not the whole post is quoted.
Great idea, some browser problems could arise but great idea nontheless. Probably the best idea i've heard from you all dayThe way I would do this is to integrate it with the reply function. If you have highlighted text before you click reply then the text you highlighted is quoted, if not the whole post is quoted.
I also suggested this same functionality on another post. Id love to see this option standard.. +1Id love to see this introduced as a standard feature.. In keeping with the clean look and feel of XenForo it would be nice to see this integrated into the "Reply with Quote" Function. I would love to see it work like this, ie: if you highlight a portion of a previous post and hit the reply with quote button, all it will quote is the selected text. This would add function and a the same time it wouldn't add any overhead to the UI..
You have to use the whole thing, ellipsis and square brackets:I had to read it twice lol did you mean the whole [...] or just the ellipsis part ... if the second i agree but only it isn't a hassle to add as you can edit someones quote anyways so that wouldn't really matter
I thought as much, probably more of a 'bigger feature' in all sense of the word.extremely fragile.
Community Server is bloated.Community Server 2007 employs the feature.
Solid idea.Upon highlighting a section of someone's post text and clicking Reply, just that highlighted text becomes quoted, not the entire message.
I think the main argument for not offering selective quoting of posts is .... considerable is an overstatement.Thus taking considerable labour out of quoting when sections of the post need snipping out.
Nope, I'm not in charge of that board anymore. New webmaster took it over. It's holding together all things considered.did you get your CS converted to XF ?
