Me or the forum? Very strange post quoting issue
#1
This post by me:

http://www.pa2a.org/newreply.php?tid=348&pid=2661

I quoted two different people in my post. First, D10, second, cgbudde.

But it shows two identical quotes by cgbudde.

Is this a known issue?

I'm not going to check the HTML on the page because I know it's going to say what I see. But when I go to edit the post I see the two distinct quotes and all of the opening and closing tags are accurate.

Can one of you mods use your editing powers to try open the post for editing and see what I am looking at, please?
I produced precise formulations for what you call, "Black Powder," for General Washington. If not for me, you would be speaking the Queen's English today. Say my name, which you cannot find with an internet search, proud to be a member of pa2a.org since Sep 2012.

I don't get it, is it still doing it for you on the same post?

When I clink on your link I can see the 2 quotes from different members, then I click "Preview" and it also shows the 2 separate quotes.

Are you saying you still see the same quote twice?

FWIW I have not seen the phenomenon you are seeing.

For me, it showed me the same quote twice in my browser, but when I went to edit, it showed two different quotes. Very strange phenomenon.

I see the same quote twice when I read the thread. When I try to edit my post I see the two different posts I quoted from two different people.

OK, just tried, and yup, same thing.  Wow... that's pretty bizarre.

I'm the last one to look into this But I'm sure Andrew or RocketFoot will be along shortly to save the day.

It is a little weird...I'm not sure why this happens but it has to have something to do with browsers.  I haven't had any issues like that on mine.  I'm using Firefox.

A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

Thanks, Bumble. Let's see what RocketFeet has to say:

^Hahah! It's repeatable. I did it again. Go into edit mode on that post and see what it is supposed to be.

I noticed an issue when I tried to break down someones post into several quotes, to respond to each one individually. It come out quoting the same thing each time, instead of each different part of the post.

I use Firefox as well and it does it for me. I tried multiquoting about 6 posts and it was a nightmare to fix.
