    I get this message???? Is something broke? Or do I need special permission?

    The quote option is working just fine and it does not require special permission.

    If you want to quote a post, click on the + Quote directly under that post followed by the Reply link right next to it. The quoted post will appear automatically into the Write your reply… post.

    Let me know if you need any further help.

    im pretty sure there is something wrong, im having the same problem with the "insert quotes" button. the reply button works but the multi-quote system gives you an error message.

    to experience this glitch, simply hit the "quote" button on a post then go down to the "insert quotes" button.

    this system used to work (Ive used it before) so Im sure something isn't right.

    Matt is right. It isn't working. This error started for me a couple of days ago.

    I will check from my home computer when I get a chance. Maybe it is a new issue with a tablet, although I've done multi quote before from a tablet....

    Wish I could remember who else I've seen mention this issue. I know I've seen it as a passing comment on other threads.

    That may just be a result of Brickburn's "it's not funny" joke filter.... :E Lol:

    I just tried again and im still getting the error message.

    click the "+quote" button between "like" and "reply" then go to the bottom of the screen and click the "insert quotes..." button. it should put the quote in the text but instead is giving us an error message.

    Thank you Matt. I cannot reproduce the error and it could be attributed to a number of things...

    The step by step that you gave is NOT correct, here is the way to do it:

    If you want to quote a post, click on the + Quote directly under that post followed by the Reply link right next to it. The quoted post will appear automatically into the Write your reply…

    you can skip hitting the "+quote" button and just hit the "reply" button and it will put a quote in the text box.

    but, my point was just a little while ago the system I described worked just fine. you could quote multiple people at once without having to hit "reply" to each person.

    at any rate, if the multi-quote system no longer works we should probably remove the dead link that appears after hitting the "+quote" button.

    I need to go back and try this from my tablet. It worked just fine right now from my computer. I typically highlight just the portion I want to quote and then just click the quote button that comes up as part of the highlight (worked here)

    Yup - it worked for this example.

    Matt,

    Are you using a tablet? It might have something to do with the different OS? I'm using Android and perhaps they made a change that made it incompatible? Sure wouldn't be the first time....

    Hmmm....

    How bizarre.... From my android phone it works fine. Just not my tablet? Seems to be no rhyme nor reason.

    might be the variation of either operating systems or maybe the browser?

    browser it seems.... when i use Firefox it works from the tablet. Chrome seems to be the culprit for me. Unfortunately, Firefox has other issues on the tablet and overall Chrome seems to be better. Hopefully they will fix the bug soon....

    at least the mystery is solved. the reason Jerome cant verify our issues is because he is likely running a browser that doesn't have the problem.
