Hi
Something I like alot to have on the forum that I is admin is multi quote and how many history quote I can have.


As for multi quote is that I mean I can click on many replay and then have them all in one replay so I do not need to copy and paste.

As for history quite is that sometime if someone quote an quote it can be alot of quite and hard to read.

What I have understand that is som "hack" in the code to make so I can't have more then 3 quote but I have never got it to work.

Well here is a multiquote mod that you can use now

http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=2360

It looks like multiquote is built-in to 2.0.3, or is there a mod installed for this forum? I just clicked Quote on the first, went to a new line, clicked Quote on the second. Is that what you're looking for?

As far as quote depth, I think there's a switch in Admin to turn it on and off. A nice feature would be to set the depth of quotes (0 for no embedded quotes, 1 for a single level, etc., with -1 for "don't care how deep it goes"). That might be something that should be selectable by member profile, rather than set for the entire forum for everyone.

hmm it is a little change from that I have on my forum

in my forum I add quite is show as clean text in a box on the bottom of the page, if I add another quote it show more text (not so easy to read where it begin and where it end)
Her I get in the top of the forum and with smiley and that.

That have to be a settings but where or is it new thing in 2.0.3???

I just like to have something easy so everyone understand they can do :)


vbgamer45:
Hmm yes look like a nice mod, maybe going to try that but if I can make the default quote system to work I do not need any mod :)


Yes a "quote depth" is something I like to have very soon :)

Arantor

There is an option in the admin panel to remove nested quotes, which will prevent people quoting a quote, but it's not quote depth.

There is no mod for multi-quote at this forum, what is visible here is visible on any SMF forum (and has been for years)

mm yes I have found that I can remove nested quotes but as you say nothing about quote depth but I hope it came in some versionen soon :)


Arantor

I've never seen the need to restrict quote depth, only either not worry about it at all, or not allow nesting; doing anything else is extremely iffy and likely to be unreliable (the current code is not perfect as it stands)

Multiquote is something I'm still not sure about. There's been a good number of calls over the years for it, but I'm still not quite convinced. What we have currently is not quite ideal if you're replying to a number of posts at once.
