I quoted something in a post. The site didn't realize I used BB code


#1

Well, the title pretty much says it all. My post literally shows the BB “quote” tags, exactly as they appeared before I press the button to post what I had typed.

Here is my post. I quoted an article three times in one post. As you can see, in the first quote, the website just interpreted the BB code as literal characters, rather than… well, BB code.

Please take a look at this.

Thank you for your time, and thank you for this awesome website.

PS: I didn’t actually write that “quote” tag myself. Instead, I highlighted the section of the article I wanted to quote, and used the “quote” button that appeared. I only deleted a few extra lines that I felt weren’t needed.

Hi TSJNachos117, thanks for the compliments, much appreciated :wink:

Unfortunately you encountered an issue with the bbcode plugin, I think that when you deleted some lines, the ending quote tag didn’t came on a line itself. For some reason the tags don’t properly close.
Once in a while it happens, and fortunately I can edit posts, so a simple ENTER press solved this issue :wink:
