So it warns and then it clears the message to bring in the quotes from posts you have selected... It doesn't clip (<p>) tags, though... Opera 9.64
It should, that's really wacky. The <p> tags you quoted were uppercase for some reason. Anyway, I did a slight tweak that should fix that.
It's a bit silly at the minute. If you forget to untick the box, when you go to other threads you end up with massive bits of text in the box, and no easy way to get rid of them.
Yeah, I'm going to add a clear button someplace. I use the mini header bar instead of the full forum header, so that's the preferred place for me.
I actually wish it didn't do this. It's useful to quote these things because it allows people to know what you're responding to. If the user doesn't want these things in the post, he/she can remove them him/herself (odds are he doesn't want to quote the entire post anyway).
This was spit out by your auto-quote code. Something tells me it wasn't supposed to be. Are we free to reuse your code/icon? I don't really like the idea of using the code directly from your site and there are some improvements I'd like to try to make. For example, the inclusion of all markup, the exclusion of random <span>s. Also, I don't like how the only option is to overwrite your existing post with a quote. It would be better if you appended to the existing post when editing, I think. I realize it's not finalized, but I'm still curious.
** EDIT **
It could also use a clear/erase button somewhere. When does it empty itself?
Why is it useful to quote stupid crap like other quotes, media, etc? If the context is that ambiguous, they can click to go see it. I could make it copy quotes up to 1 layer deep I suppose.
As far as the span tag, that's an issue with image tags it appears. I'll have to make it support images better. isn't excluded, spans are snipped out because you can't post them anyway. I can't really stop you from stealing the code, and the icon is probably copyrighted (I just stole it from a google image search), but I would ask that if you release the edited copy of it that you mention that and not take full credit.
I'm working on a new version that will only copy selected portions of the post (if you select a portion before hitting the button), appending wouldn't be hard to do though it would require figuring out what quotes are already included. How often do you type out a whole post then go back to add quotes anyway?
As far as when it empties itself, it clears the accumulated list any time you submit a new post/edit post form.
