    i don't know php mvc,

    but you have to modify

    bb_code_tag_quote template

    But that is the default how it works.
    If you want nested quotes (as you did in your post), you have to do it step by step inserting quotes into quotes.

    Right, but I want to prevent members from quoting a quote of a quote.. So it isn't messy with 20 people quoted, next person replies quoting all that plus last post etc.

    Most likely would require a add-on to strip the extra quote tags. Users can always insert extra quotes so check that before the post is submitted would be the only way.

    You should open a thread suggesting implementing nested quotes with limits.
    You would restrict it to zero, I would restrict it to 3-4, someone else would be happy not to restrict it at all.
    (I remember nested quotes from phpBB, they were fun)
    Everybody should be happy with that option.

    Perhaps such thread already exist?

    Hmmm, haven't really tried this out or tested it but could try this in extra.css as a quick fix:

    .quoteContainer .bbCodeBlock.bbCodeQuote
       display: none;
    Not sure if it's the function you want though.
