Errors when quoting
#1
I'm unable to quote. User error a high possibility.

I'm on OS X 10.12 (Sierra), using Chrome 49.0.3071.115 (the current build).

When I click the "quote" button at the bottom of a quote, I see this in my console


general.js?ver=1800:531


Uncaught ReferenceError: cookieSecureFlag is not defined
   at Object.set (general.js?ver=1800:531)
   at Object.multiQuote (thread.js?ver=1800:82)
   at <anonymous>:1:8



and then when I click the "Quote these posts now" link in the reply textarea, I see the following error:


VM1082:1


Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected end of JSON input
   at JSON.parse (<anonymous>)
   at Function.m.parseJSON (jquery.js?ver=1800:5)
   at Object.multiQuotedLoaded (thread.js?ver=1800:116)
   at Object.complete (thread.js?ver=1800:99)
   at j (jquery.js?ver=1800:2)
   at Object.fireWith (jquery.js?ver=1800:2)
   at x (jquery.js?ver=1800:5)
   at XMLHttpRequest.b (jquery.js?ver=1800:5)



Any suggestions for different ways to quote posts or things to try are very much appreciated.

Quoting has always been buggy for me, too - and had never worked on mobile.

I've never had it work for me either, but if I hit reply it'll get the post I wanna quote.

I never use the quote button. But trying it now, I don't even know what the difference is, the behaviour seems the same either way.

To the original poster: if it doesn't work with just reply, can you try with Safari or Firefox?

I think the intended behaviour is that when you toggle the quote button on a number of posts, when you finally hit a quote-reply button, it will open a reply with all of the posts you had toggled showing up as quotes in the reply. This is useful to avoid situations where one person replies several times in a row to different posts in the same thread; instead, they simply toggle the posts they wish to reply to, and then respond to them all in a single post.

Firefox fails as well.

Quoting does not work on my Blackberry (yes, you heard me), but when I switch it to "desktop mode" then it works fine.

It's the multi-quote! But it doesn't seem to do anything for me anyway.  (This is on Firefox.)

For the record, it doesn't work for me in Chrome either, I'm just guessing that that is the intended behaviour.

I think the quote feature is intended for quoting multiple posts. I should just remove it to be honest with you, it's buggy.

Use the reply button. Does that work for everyone?
