When I click on the Reply button, I see a green refreshing bar on the top left near the forums, but nothing happens. I have to click the quote button and then insert quote to actually quote a post in my reply. Anyone else having this issue?
I took me a while to figure out how to do a Reply that quotes someone else. First click in the text box for your response, then go back to the post you want to quote and click on the Reply button and it will show up so that you can respond to it.

That's weird! I can only see if after I've clicked in the reply box first, like Marsha mentioned. If I don't click there, I don't see anything.
I've had the same thing happen with trying to use the Reply within the post itself first. I get the flashing green bars at the top but nothing appears in the text box for me to respond.

Hmmm, quoted this as usual, works well

Maybe it is a bug...I've tried it a few more times, twice I got the green bar up above and one time the quote showed up right away. :umm: I refreshed the page in between tries so no cursor was showing in the reply box.
Thought it might be the browser but it's happening to me in both Firefox and Chrome. Neither one works like it used to.

Jordan Any thoughts on why the Reply quoting isn't working consistently (or at all) for some of us?
There's some yet-to-be-sorted funkiness. Something is causing bad gateway errors in this version of the board that never happened on the older version, and I'm pretty sure that's the problem with the intermittent bugs. I'm working on solutions, but I haven't found the cause just yet.
