Clicking quote overwrites current content

  • Sometimes, it is very useful to reply to more than part of the conversation in a forum thread in one go. It would be useful if the quote link would not simply result in overwriting the contents of the reply box, but would insert the quote code into the edit box at the current cursor position. Obviously, if the box is empty, the behavior would be the same, but if it is not, you would not loose your work.

  • Agree on that. Unfortunately for now it will require manual copy+paste.

    What we could add is a checkbox or something next to each reply that you could click on, which in turns - after you hit the Post reply button - collected all the selected replies into the replyform and wrapped a quote tag around each reply.
