    Upgrade: Multi-Quote Capability

    Does the multi-quote capability work? Its use is described in the forum's FAQ, here: http://www.codeguru.com/forum/faq.ph...q_vb3_replying

    I tried using it in accordance with this FAQ, but I was not able to get quotes of multiple posts.

    It has been working for me, like this :
    With every post that I wanted to quote, I selected the Multi Quote button, once I have selected them all, I clicked on Post Reply

    It doesn't seem to work with Post Quick Reply

    Hope it helps!

    works for me. To be frank, this is the first time I am using this and I am using multi quote to compose this very reply. I love this feature. Trying to do this , I noticed a small annoyance. All the buttons ( i.e. quote, multiquote, quick post) are on the right hand side. Would it make sense to move the Post reply button also to the right hand side? It just feels a little wierd to move the mouse all the way to the left extreme after having selected multi-quote. Just a user interface consideration.. but I think the problem would be backwards compatibility for millions who are already used to seeing the Post reply on the left extreme.

    Well, it's working for me now. I am doing the exact same sequence of button clicks and selections as yesterday, but yesterday it wasn't working.

    Thanks for checking.

    But i agree with Kirants, even if it's just a second "Post reply" button on the right ....
