Question "Quote" not the same as quoted post?

I ran into an odd one the other day. . .

If you view post #111 (page 8) of the thread, “WBCCI New Constitution”, this is what you see:

Quote:
If y'all want to know why SaveWally was shut down..... This is the best example.
If you press the Quote button, this is what you get:

What you see is not what you get!

Does this kind of thing happen when a post is edited after it’s written?

Anyone can edit their own posts, even after the first one is posted. zz

Didn't Happen to me. Sorta

I just did a test on a post I edited earlier today.

When I quoted it, I got the most recent version.

However, when I quoted the post you cited, I got the same result as you.

The thought occurs to me. . . there were some posts deleted from that thread, which may mess up the accounting somehow.

Could be. Curious...Do you happen to be subscribed to that thread?

No.

No big deal. Strange, though, as have posted and quoted many posts and never seen this phenomenon before. Some bit error somewhere.

I thought once you posted to a thread you were subscribed.

You have to specifically subscribe yourself to a thread, just posting to it doesn't automatically subscribe you - At least not for me, unless there's a setting I don't know about.

I am getting the same result as Nuvite, and I am not only not subscribed, I have that forum on my ignore list.

I am thinking that anyone quoting that post will get the same result. Is anyone getting it correctly?

Sometimes...

I will copy the portion of a post I want to quote then use html to quote it. If you do that, the author's name will not automatically appear as when you use the "click quote" buttons.

Also, if you quote a whole post, then edit out the portions you don't want or separate out the single quote into multiple quotes using html - you can edit the author's name in or out too. Make sense?

Like this...

Using the "click button" for the following, the html reads (substituting "<>" for "[]")
<QUOTE=InsideOut;953128> blah blah blah </QUOTE>(substituting "<>" for "[]")
The tool inserts the quote reference & author's name in the html automatically resulting in:

Hope this helps...it just depends on how the author uses the tool.

I think this was just a hiccup. I agree the OP probably edited the post after making it.. we did a little server-side cleaning and this issue seems resolved now.

Hi, Shari,

Just to make sure I was not misunderstood. . .

I have used both methods that you describe. In fact, if you go back to the first post in this thread, I showed what actually appears in the original post by highlighting it and copying it, then pasting into my reply and surrounding by the QUOTE and /QUOTE boxes.

Next I showed what the forum software put in the reply when I pressed the Quote button in the original post.

The point of all this is that, for this particular post, the Quote button does not quote what is in the original post. I thought that was quite strange.

(For my purposes, the author's name in the original post is not the important thing. It's that the Quote button actually inserts a link to the original post, so that anyone who wants to refer to it can do so.)
