    New feature added to the forum.

    You may now highlight selected pieces of text in someone's post and quote just that selection instead of quoting the entire post. Try it out. Highlight some of the text in this post and you will see a little box popup, click the option and it will automatically put the quoted text into the quick reply box, you can then do this a few more times if you wish and it will continue to automatically add all the info into the quick reply box.

    Hope it is useful for some. Here is a pic for an example.

    Glad you guys like it.
    It doesn't include pics because it is a "text" highlighting tool. ;) I'll check if there is a way to include pics but don't get your hopes up. :)

    Sorry, no luck with pics or smilies or links. It will work only on plain text, anything else selected apart from plain text will simply be removed from the quote.

    Woa, thanks Uncle, saves me a lot of copy and paste between the "quote" link. Just hope the server will be working after you worked on the mainframe again.... Now copy and paste that :tt2:

    Dean a cool feature. But can be abused as shown in the quote above. No offence crispy. One should not be allowed to edit quotes. Quotes are quotes. Or are they??

    Quotes have always been editable, there is no setting to prevent quotes from being edited. You'll just have to behave yourself. :p
    haha :p
