Rob,

I don't know when it changed, but it seems that the quote functionality has changed slightly.

I used to be able to do something like this and it would come up as a quote and display the name.
CODE
[quote name='bill gates']640K is enough for anyone[/quote]

But not anymore.
QUOTE
640K is enough for anyone
I have to add a post attribute before it will. And I don't even have to specify a valid post number.
CODE
[quote name='bill gates' post='1000000000']640K is enough for anyone[/quote]

QUOTE (bill gates) *
640K is enough for anyone

Can it be made so that if you don't specify the post number that the name is still shown?

Shouldn't the syntax be:
CODE
[quote=bill gates]640K is enough for anyone[/quote]


QUOTE (bill gates)
640K is enough for anyone

EDIT: Strike that. Although that does indeed work, it appears that quoting on this board is normally done slightly differently to the ones I'm familiar with.

I’m sure that’s exactly what nate was after.

It's an option, but all my previous posts are still broken. I'm not going to go through and edit all of the last years posts to change the quote format so it would be good if this could be fixed.

OK, I see what you are saying now, the change has retrospectively affected every quote of that format in all the posts on this forum.
