Smart quoting less annoying, but still has auto-quoting if you want it.

When you highlight text now, a "Quote" button will appear near your mouse cursor. You can click this to open the quoting pane or do other stuff with the selected text. If you click elsewhere the quote button will disappear.

While you're in the quoting pane, there's an "Auto-Quote" link. If you click this, it'll turn green and the feature will work like it did before (highlight text will automatically stick it in the quoting pane).

Sorry about the delay on this, took me a little while to figure out the best way to do it.

Also yes, OPs are going to be integrated with this feature soon -- I've had some development snags there too.

Still waiting on the button to make it stop automatically popping up. Also it still automatically puts the message I was copy and pasting there anyway regardless of if this is off and it can end up copying it to part of the message I don't want it to. I can't even turn auto-quote on for some reason.

It's probably due to javascript caching on your end. Should be fixed now hopefully.

There's also a bug where the quote button appears at the top left of the site sometimes. I'll look into it tomorrow.

Seems to work right now.

I assume the issue is just that it's default state is to be visible, therefore you can see it in its default position when you load a page? The moment you highlight text and then deslect the text the quote button is gone (until you load a new page or reload).

Yeah, but making it invisible causes a bunch of issues, so I need to delve into the code a bit deeper.

And fixed. Was hiding the wrong element.
