Why Don't My Quote Tags Work?


Recommended Posts

So I'm not really sure why my quote tags used to work but they don't seem to work in my posts anymore. Any sugesstions as I am already using the quote button to add the tags so I don't think they're caused by typos.

 

thanks in advance.

Hi, James. Every "quote tag" requires a "close quote tag", as a quote must have a beginning and an end in order to work. So, if the number of quote tags and close quote tags is not the same, none of the quotes tend to work correctly. The "Close all Tags" option in the posting menu should help you find any unclosed tags.

 

Also, on another board I frequent which uses the same software I believe there is a limit to how many tags each post may contain. If you have a lot of quotes in one post, that might be creating a problem. Not certain about that one, though.

I was wondering if it is the new "quick reply" option causing the problem. Also, it didn't seem that we had this issue until the board changed to this new look. Did something change in the software besides the look?

Are you having this problem with quote tags, too? Could all of you send me or post links to the posts where this is happening so I can try to figure it out.

 

Yes, a lot of little coding things changed with the new system that I am still wading through.
