The quoting in a Reply is a bit odd

resolved

#1

I did a reply to a post by ugo here Why Verizon locks bootloaders and the quote of ugo’s post is very strange. Is this a bug or a me problem?

Hey @Ian_Barnard. A fair question, as it’s not immediately obvious how quoting works on this software.

You can quote specific text by selecting it before hitting reply (or by selecting it and clicking the ‘Quote’ button when it appears).

E.g. selecting this text:

Then hitting Reply (or Quote), generates this:

I’m guessing you just had that piece of text selected when you replied.

It’s also worth knowing that you can edit your posts for a short while after posting to correct any mistakes etc. by clicking the grey pencil icon at the bottom of the post :slight_smile:

Hope that helps!
