Quote Button Inoperable
« on: September 07, 2019, 11:19:30 AM »
When reading a thread, you may notice a button off to the far right labeled, "Quote".  That button suggests that if you want to quote that poster's words, you'd click and then respond in a window that copies that quoted post.  So far, all I have seen is a space open at the very top of my screen saying, "Loading...." but nothing ever does. 

I know this isn't a big deal as the buttons available when posting include another quote button that is a generic way to add a quote to your post (it adds "quote, /quote" within brackets where you can past the words you want to show as a quote).

This to me is minor but thought I'd mention it.

Yes, when logged in.  After noticing others applying correct quotes, I can go in and add everything manually to get it to work.  Just not with the quote button on the far right.

BTW, the above quote I did manually using the button just above the text window.  It works, just not "one click" in our lazy modern world....

Pascal,
Interesting question.  I mostly use the dysfunctional MS IE. 

So..... I also tried Chrome and SeaMonkey.  With the other two I get the same thing on the screen.   There's an orange bar at the top and above that the word, "Loading."

The one difference is in SeaMonkey I also saw (above "Loading") a new window open saying, "You have requested a page that is only partially encrypted and does not prevent eavesdropping." 
Naturally I had to click on the Options button and from a pop up window, I have to select some stuff for Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS).  This is why I don't use SeaMonkey much.

While a few extra keyboard strokes, I can get by with manual quotes.  I can do that.  It appears that button works for others so it sounds like just me.  NBD (No Big Deal).
