@ivar - The last few days I haven't been able to use the quote/multi-quote feature on the forum.

I will select several quotes, but when I click on "insert quotes" nothing happens. I have tried different browsers on both my phone and PC - Chrome, Firefox, and even Microsoft Edge, and I have the same problem with all of them.

I've noted the same: I select some text in a post, click on +Quote which then changes to -Quote as expected but when I then click on "Insert Quotes... in my reply window, nothing happens. MacOS, Safari.

Obviously, it is possible to quote a whole post but that is not the problem here.

Most years since 2012. Hoping now for 2022.
Yes, the "Insert quotes" feature doesn't work. You can use "Reply" (and then edit it down if you want) but that only allows you to quote from a single post.

Apparently this happened in a recent software update. Hopefully it will be repaired by the software developer in the next update.

Thanks. I thought that it was just me!

I learned something new today re: multi quotes which (if it's working) would be much simpler than what I've been doing to quote multiple messages!! It is possible to use another way to quote from multiple messages

I hit "reply" for each post I want to quote. The posts stack up in my reply box, then in each post I edit out what I don't want to quote , space between each post and write my responses.

Yes, the multi-quote (when it's up and running again) is fantastic. You simply highlight what you want to quote and you get a pop-up with the choice to quote or reply.

Then under the reply box you will see the "insert quotes" button. You can rearrange the order or eliminate quotes that you don't want to use.

I'm looking forward to its return.

I learned something new from you! I didn't know that you can stack up more than one "reply."

I ended up doing the ‘reply’ thing too - then editing out the stuff I didn’t want to ‘quote’.

I haven’t checked today to see if it’s been fixed. / edit : just re read your post c clearly. It appears it will be corrected in next software update. Thankyou.
I like using the ‘insert quotes’ especially with the multi quotes.

I thought it was just me but it I have had this problem too. Discovered it first when I wanted to quote you. It is true. Thanks for bringing this up and hope it is fixed soon.

When I ‘select’ part of a post and click on ‘quote’, I get that yellow thing going across the top … I‘ve always assumed it’s some sort of site-updating ‘alert’.

I don’t get as far as seeing the Quote box.

I gave up and just copied the section I wanted.
This was on a PM, I assume it’s the same as for a post.

Thanks for pointing it out! I had a LOT of quotes in the queue. Have you noticed that now you can drag quotes around to change the order?
I also had to delete a lot of quotes in my queue.
It was possible before to rearrange the quotes.
