Please Fix The Quotes Display In Forums

I don't know if it's just me, but whenever a quoted response is made in a thread, the quote is not highlighted like it should be. There's no way to let the reader know where the quote ends and where the response begins. It all just runs together, unless it's differentiated manually with a different color font or other formatting, but most of the time it's just all mashed together as one.


 


I've been reading through these forums voraciously for the past week now, and I'm completely blown away by how much great info there is, but it can get a bit burdensome and time-wasting to constantly have to go back and forth to decipher who is saying what.


 


Is this just a problem with the way the ip board is set up? Can an administrator take a look at this?

    Alright, this will be the official "broken quotes" thread.  Please direct other inquiries to this thread until we get it sorted.


  • haha sorry guys....I didn't even know what I would have searched for to start with. 


     


    in any case, if anybody wants a workaround to use with a chrome addon and knows how to use css stylings, get stylebot over here - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stylebot/oiaejidbmkiecgbjeifoejpgmdaleoha


     


    and you can customize it to highlight quotes however you like.


  • When ever You quote a person there isnt a box sectioning off the quote like other forums. 


     


    You cant distinguish between actual posts and quotes and its annoying and frustrating.


     


    I have to colour in the quotes in Green so that its easier on the eye.


  • Anytime someone uses the quote function in the forum, it doesn't appear correctly. It has the quote bar, but then the text is not encapsulated by the quote box... which makes it rather difficult to discern what is a quote and what isn't.


     


    I assume this is the case for everyone, but just in case it's just me, here is what it looks like: http://gyazo.com/b8b7840dee7d38db7ce440406d4e6f48


     


    If there is any way to fix it, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

    Make your own CSS


     


    For Firefox (most browsers allow custom CSS)


     


     


    The easy way:


    Install


    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/stylish/


     


    Create new CSS: Click Manage styles. Give it any name. Paste:



    @-moz-document url-prefix(http://forum.bulletproofexec.com) {

    Blockquote {background-color: #ccc; !important;}

    }

    Save.


     


    More info and how to do it manually without extensions


    http://coreygilmore.com/blog/2008/10/23/per-site-custom-css-in-firefox/


     


    p.s. In Linux the path is ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/chrome/userContent.css


    * is a series of letters/numbers that names your profile


    userContent.css is the style file you created


  • Looks like this:
