Where are the "quote" buttons?

"replying to a post by quoting it. The first option is to click on the Quote button on the top right-hand side of the relevant post. The second option is to select the Reply button which will take you to the Post reply screen. On this page you can quote a post from the Topic Summary located below the message editor. Simply click on Insert Quote"

In my testing, even different themes, and looking thru the settings, I have no quote button.  What am I missing.  This is smf 2.0.17

each theme will be different....for the default (curve) theme

Themes/default/images/theme/quote.png
but there is also the sprite
Themes/default/images/theme/quickbuttons.png

the css that handles different parts of the quote
Themes/default/css/index.css
blockquote.bbc_standard_quote, blockquote.bbc_alternate_quote
{
font-size: x-small;
color: #000;
line-height: 1.4em;
background: url(../images/theme/quote.png) 0.1em 0.1em no-repeat;
border-top: 2px solid #99A;
border-bottom: 2px solid #99A;
padding: 1.1em 1.4em;
margin: 0.1em 0 0.3em 0;
overflow: auto;
}

/* Alterate blockquote stylings */
blockquote.bbc_standard_quote
{
background-color: #d7daec;
}
blockquote.bbc_alternate_quote
{
background-color: #e7eafc;
}

/* The "Quote:" and "Code:" header parts... */
.codeheader, .quoteheader
{
color: #666;
font-size: x-small;
font-weight: bold;
padding: 0 0.3em;
}

ul.quickbuttons li.quote_button
{
background: url(../images/theme/quickbuttons.png) no-repeat 0 0;
}

.topic_table td blockquote, .topic_table td .quoteheader
{
margin: 0.5em;
}

Yes and I tried the core theme on my forum....but generally using mobile themes is a must.

Just tried curve and core on my pc.  No quote buttons in either theme.

...but I do have them here.

Do you have the quote bbcode enabled?

Probably not.  I unchecked all of that. 

I'll try it.

Yeah, that was it.  I was just trying to stop as much resource usage and potential outside linking as possible, besides posting regular html links.  I've been in other forums where all kinds of hotlinking is all over the place and it makes using a smartphone really slow.

I'll have to figure out which of the "basic" bbc code functions I can use without over loading resources and data transfer.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

You can turn them all on.

The *only* one in a base SMF install that actually consumes any external data is the image bbcode which, well, has to load an image from an external source. The rest don't have to go anywhere and consume such little resource that it's not an issue.

In fact honestly, I'd worry about having traffic before I'd worry about having performance issues.
