HowTo - Edit-in Quoted material after post is submitted

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

 

As many of you might have already noticed, we dont really have an option for multi-quotes in replies yet at NBT (at least not when youve already submitted your post). However, there is a workaround that you can use in the meantime. Thanks to @Reciever for pointing out this section to me so that I can post this little step by step guide!

 

Admin Edit: To be more specific, this guide is meant to reflect how to "edit-in" another post into your last post in the event someone added more content or you had simply missed the post and wish to comment on or address it without double posting.

 

The workaround is as follows, and currently has only been verified on Desktop (mobile might depend on the browser / device ure using):

 

- write original message while quoting someone by clicking "quote" button under the message u want to quote (regular single quote)

- submit reply

- go to second message u want to quote, click on "quote"

- in the new second reply window, click on the quote and ull see a small box on the upper left corner like here (thanks to @Mr. Fox for being the guinea pig here 😄)

- click on that box, do a Ctrl+X
- go back to your first message, click edit, do a Ctrl+V to insert the second quote and off you go!

 

Note: Before inserting the second / third, etc. quote u might want to insert 2-3 empty lines after your previous text, otherwise there will be no additional lines after the new quotes to type.

 

It is a bit annoying but it works!

Works perfectly. Thanks for sharing, bro.

 

It's interesting that a right-click copy and Ctrl+C (copy) did not seem to work for me after clicking on the control box in the upper left hand corner, but Ctrl+X (cut) works every time.

Huh? Multiquote has always worked fine for me. The only slight issue I find with it is that when you paste in the quotes at the start of a reply, there is then no way that I can find of inserting text before the first quote, unless you start again from scratch and remember to ensure to leave a line break there to begin with. What browser are you using?

I added some clarification into the title and the post, the means to this solution is via multi-quote / quote however the main topic being displayed is how to edit in additional quotes into your last post after having submitted the post proper. 

 

Essentially, You submit a post and saw that someone may have replied right before you finished your post and you wish to comment on or address without double-posting, for someone reason the standard means of copy/paste didnt seem to jive well in the forum software (at all). Instead Invision community opted for a CTRL + X combination instead of CTRL + C. If this is something I can change I will attempt to do so its just been a crazy busy season this year.

@Aaron44126 not sure if you already knew about this or not, but I know you appreciate functional awareness.

 

Thanks...  I haven't had issue with "mutli-quote" (I just click the quote button and it adds it to the end of the post that I am working on), but add-quote-after-posting that you mention is a little bit tedious.  I just start a new post with the quote and cut/paste it into the edit window afterwards.

Same -__-, sometimes feels like it will always be that way but ironically, I despise a lacking of purpose as well sooo, striking a balance is I guess the real goal.
