Could use [quote]

Post by Ageless » Thu Nov 05, 2009 1:35 pm

One of those days you have nothing to do, Neil, I'd really appreciate the addition of a [quote] option in the FAQs. :)

Hi Jord,

Shouldn't be too hard to do - it should work the same as the [code] option.

Do you want support for: [quote="A Name"] as well?

Cheers,

Neil.

Might be useful as well. :)

If possible though, do not make text inside the quote italicized. I hate it when that's done as it makes stressing certain parts that more difficult.

Thanks.

Hi Jord,

Tis done ;-)

So you can now do:

[quote]Neil is great![/quote]

and:

[quote=Neil]...he wishes![/quote]

Note the lack of speech marks above.

Any bugs, let me know.

Cheers,

Neil.

Thanks, works great. Good use of the alternate background colour. Makes it stand out.
Now I wonder if the code tags shouldn't get that same background colour. ;)

Oh yes, I like that. I've always found the green text difficult to read, while the wrapping of the code boxes made them look somewhat awkward. Go on then. What's keeping you? ;-)

Hi Jord,

Changes have been uploaded and are now live.

What's been keeping me? Well that would be Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on the PS3 :-)

Cheers,

Neil.
