Quote vs. MultiQuote
« on: April 04, 2008, 07:59:58 AM »

Is there a way to get 2 different quote buttons, one that will quote multiple posts (quote of a quote of a quote..) vs  one that will just quote the newest (in a quote of a quote of a quote).

I started working on this, but then I realized I may have interpreted it incorrectly.  I just read it again, and now I have no idea what you're saying.  In each subsequent reading, I understand less what you mean by  Air quotes quote of a quote of a quote Air quotes

Could you dumb it down a shade?

Didn't there used to be some dude on FGI that would comprehend Aske posts and translate them for the rest of us to understand?  Some sort of Asshat Whisperer.

Aske, do you know of another forum that has an example of multiquote functionality that I can look at?

I like the current implementation of the feature.

BTW, translation of Aske's post:

The current "Quote" button already is the "MultiQuote" feature. What Aske wants is another quoting mechanism that quotes ONLY the crap typed by the poster that you are quoting rather than all the other crap in the post that were quotes of another post.

i.e. "shallow copy" vs. "deep copy"

I think the implementation would be difficult as some people break up other's posts and respond in between.

Ah, ok.  got it.  That's tougher than I expected, mainly because since my regex skillz suck.  I'll look around and see if someone has already written something like this.

I vaguely remember that.  He was a total jackass, IIRC.

LOL.


yeh,  if there's 3 nested quotes,  it would sometimes be nice to hit a 'quote' button that only quotes the outermost shell of that nest

Another forum I'm on, that's the default for the "Quote" button.  If you want to nest quotes, you have to add them in manually.

D'oh!  Oops

There's a forum option to set this.  Embarrassed

Quote
Remove nested quotes when posting - This will only show the quote of the post in question, not any quoted posts from that post.

At this point, it's either one way or the other, there's no option for buttons for both.  I don't have time now to get both options to work, so let's try having it default to a simple, non-nested quote and see if anyone cares.
