    To webmaster: [quote] suggestions

    I really like the tags that we can use in our posts. However, I think that the quote blocks should act like code blocks in that they preserve the spaces/tabs, etc. In this way we could copy text from a help file - copy it to the clipboard - paste it into notepad - and then copy that into the clipboard and paste it into a quote block on the board.

    The way you must do it now is place the quote inside of a code block which is not a major problem, so its just a suggestion. After all when you are quoting something or someone it should be verbatim - including spaces and tabs.

    a PM or email to webmaster@cprogramming.com might be a tad faster, but i like the idea.

    How about [edit] tags? Hehe..maybe that would be adding a useless tag

    Um, you're free to modify the code to vB as you will.
