  • Vbulletin.com Can't multiquote and changing quotes erases content

    Hi guys.

    don't know where to post this since I don't have a vb5... but I am trying to multiquote on the forum here and it's not working I select multiple quotes but only the first selected quote appears.. and I typed a reply and was going to remove one of the many quotes which were selected but not appeared just to avoid the problem or hitting replying and all of the sudden i have empty quotes without responses, but what happened was that removing a selection of one of the quotes erased my entire reply .. it's weird... multiquote not working properly..

    It actually works, its just totally unobvious how .......

    The first post you hit 'Quote' on will indeed be copied into the reply, after that, you will see a button appear, top left of the page, that says "Post Reply (n)" where nn is the total number of posts you want quoted - click on that, and it will insert them all into the reply box.

    Hardly anyone realises this is how it works (I had no idea, I used to think it broken as well).
    I have no explanation for why such a bizarre and unintuative system is used, instead of just copying each one to the reply as you click quote.
    Baby, I was born this way

      thank you!

        Just to be clear, this is in vB5 only.
