Quote function...

Postby Wally Bingbang » 03 Mar 2016, 14:55

I know that the quote function on BCB has always(?) been restricted to three quotes embedded within one another. This is just a test because I've noticed that it seems to now edit out contents and I'm just checking to see if that's true...

Yesterday, we got dumped on with 20cm of snow. Today the sidewalks are clear and dry. Yay us!

Ah ha! It automatically edits out the first quote, whereas before we used to get a warning about embedding too many quotes.

Well, this was enlightening.

Yes, that function appeared in one of the recent updates.
