Pop your message & Quote feature
Posted: Posted February 22nd by Xhin
Edit Report Thread Views

All replies now have a "Quote" link.



Clicking it takes their text, strips away anything that starts with a > or = or is blank, and then quotes all their actual paragraphs with > with three newlines between them so you can just click down and immediately start replying without having to press enter, or add > symbols or anything whatsoever.

Additionally, this makes the text box appear at the bottom-right of the screen. This text box will then follow you as you move down the page, and when you click the yellow arrows will pop back into where it belongs.

Since quoted paragraphs get appended to whatever the message area is, you can use this feature to read through an entire post, quoting and replying to things as you go easily. Most of us do this already, but for longer posts this can be a pain, and tends to require an external note-taking program. It's also extremely annoying on mobile, where putting > or even = is difficult sometimes. This feature should solve all of those problems.

In addition to the yellow arrows, you have vertical and horizontal arrows which allow you to move the message area to different corners of the screen.



You can also use this "Pop" button to pop your message out manually. Perhaps useful if you want to quote an OP (not currently supported by the quote feature) or write a long reply while referencing (but not directly quoting) posts before yours.

There are 8 Replies

That pop feature is pretty good!

It's adding like 2-3 new lines after popping back and would like to see an inline integration where you can highlight some text on a post and it put the quote tags around it. Like what was done with the formatting.

for the record, I will be mercilessly judging anyone who actually starts quoting shit with >

the other board I use has this and it's useful. I feel like I've mentioned it before but who knows at this point.

"Starts"? You do know that the > tag has been usable for ages on this site to quote right?

I personally use it and the [quote] tags together, because the > tag only works when you are quoting a single paragraph.

phrased that way because the new quote button automatically does it that way

Iirc the > was used in an early prototype of the quote feature in 2011 and then broke and was converted into bolding things instead.

This feature caused a new glitch where posting the original mad duck would break the rest of the post.



This has now been fixed.
