Example of a tiered quote...

Were you there Porky?

Since I do some articles/reviews for a gaming site, I have the opportunity to go with a press pass. This year was a no go, but next year chances are looking really good that I'll go. Barring any sort of other obligations.


Holy Crap Formo if you weren't a Vikings fan I'd call you a bad ass! Next year can you give us videos of you playing Kinect Super Fitness Pro Xtra Large Edition? That would be sweet! :D

PS. What website do you write for?


I dunno about the video bit.. But a few of my reviews can be seen at GUGaming.com


Does the SW have the capability of alternate shading of each specific quote?

I'd rather just see tiered quoting disabled beyond at most two layers. It's absurd when people quote an entire conversation to add just a few words.

THIS, THIS, THIS!!!

I hate, hate, hate the tiered quoting. Kill it off, and add multi quoting in place of it.

This is not possible with the software.

When you submit a post, it takes everything in the post, therefore if you have a quote in your post, it is also including when you post again.

If a quote was handle via post identification instead of grabbing the text, it would be a simple modification.


I do not know of how to accomplish this with this software.

Weird. In phpBB, the administrator can set how many layers of quotes are allowed. I wonder why this design decision was made.

Because this is not phpBB. I think we've discussed this a time or two.

This is a CMS, not straight phpBB. And the forum software used is Forums Pro, which does not come with the core CMS.

I'm as frustrated by the lack of flexibility as you are. I'm going to look into emulating the process from phpBB and see if I can include it. That's in the future though. I'm building a list of attainable goals and features.

how about just teach people to edit the code to just include certain quotes.

When I was a moderator, dhpackr, I used to edit people's posts to cut out the fat There are times people literally include the ENTIRE thread in their post, only to add a sentence or two. Whereas I trim quotes down to exactly the part I'm responding to, sometimes only a few words from a sentence. The rest of the thread is there for everyone to read; we don't need to rehash it. A quote is often necessary to set a response in context, so only as much as is required to establish the context should be included.

The problem is that most people are on broadband connections with ultra-modern browsers these days. They don't understand how LONG it can take for such cluttered threads to load on slower connections or on computers running antiquated browsers like IE 5 (such as the computers at my school's cyber cafe).

It's also just annoying to have to scroll an entire screen and a half to get to a couple of new words.

But I've been accused repeatedly of making a mountain out of a molehill, so I'll shut up.

It's a pet peeve of mine as well. I'll chop out the other quotes that don't pertain to my response. I don't see the reason for the extra clutter and it's extremely easy to trim.

Stranger, I'm not sure. At least, not by default, perhaps by a PHP hack of sorts? I think the quoting on this software is very bland. It simply takes the text, adds the quote tags around it and calls it a day.

I believe this is now completed. ;)
