Does the big quote block appear when you highlight text?

Note:

will not appear when you highlight signatures.

No.(its only on one topic that I can't quote anything on) :\

I'm not quoting a signature though.

This topic?:


It is closed; you cannot make replies. You can still quote people from it to other topics.

Yeah, I know, but it's actually this topic:
https://forum.snap.berkeley.edu/t/talk-about-video-games-here/3353

What? I did a search for the highlighted text:

and the only result I found was for the closed Comment feature...? topic.

Its an example. -_-

-_-
but your example is a different one, and that different one has a valid reason for not being able to quote.

I hate taking screenshots and cropping them.

It's not just links; it's any formatted text.
Formatted and unformatted text must both be highlighted to see the bug.
A --- B --- I --- C --- D
A --- B --- O --- C --- D
A --- B --- X --- C --- D
A --- B --- U --- C --- D
A --- B --- T --- C --- D
A --- B --- G --- C --- D
A --- B --- S --- C --- D

Does it matter that I have no clue what that picture is picturing?

Nope. No quote button.

I'm playing around with it, and I am able to reproduce it. I found that it has something to do with links.
A --- B --- L -- C -- D
Try highlighting between these pairs of points:
A -> B
A -> L
B -> C
C -> D

Well, I used to be able to quote things with the links. :thinking:

in preferences under interface, there's a setting to enable quote reply for highlighted text. Check that to be able to quote by highlighting text.

She's able to quote other things (mine is also on). It's only when the highlight contains a link; try it.

oh, yeah, I can't do it either. I used to be able to, well, I could quote text for a link, like if I quoted this it would change to this (no link)
