Errors when quoting
#11
If it doesn't work it might not be a bad idea.

What I usually do: I ⌘-click the "Reply" button below each post that I want to multi-quote... then scroll to the bottom of the original page, then flip to each new tab, Copy/Paste that text back into the original reply. Sounds tedious but I can fly through it really quick and it works well.

I really wish it worked on Mobile, though - I'm a heavy mobile user of this forum and if I want to quote I have to switch to the Desktop version, grab the code, and try to wrestle with it that way.

Mobile is a weakness in myBB. You need to use a third party plugin, which works, but is very simple.

I was sold on myBB when the site first launched, but down the road a change could be in order.

And there it is.  I really don't want to have to do that.

Maybe some day MyBB 2.0 will be released, with mobile support ...

You'd have to think that's next for them.  Although I believe it took forever to go from 1.6 to 1.8.  And a number of features didn't transfer over. 


I've been impressed with xenforo.  If myBB doesn't improve, I'd consider that.  I haven't done a ton of research into it yet, although preliminary reading yields positive reviews.

I had to translate this from Mac-ese. On a PC it's a mid-click.

At least from a user perspective, xenforo is quite nice.  It does cost money, but not that much.  There is a myBB import ... but how well does it work, and how complete is it, those are the key questions!

It's actually Ctrl-LMB to open in a new tab.

Is xenforo the software used on UrbanToronto?
