On the PBF forum we pass around a "token" a lot. Usually you quote the previous post, remove the outer quotes from the previous poster, and then submit. But sometimes folks forget to do so. That creates this weird image:

There are two quote start tags, and two quote end tags, which SHOULD match up, but they don't. From what I see, all tags end appropriately, and in the reverse order of how they were opened. Any thoughts on whats wrong?

I can post links to a number of PBF postings where this has occurred.

Maybe the issue is the tags inside the quote tags (In the [ q = X ] part)?

Edit: Yeah, I'm thinking it's just not able to parse the [ q="INTERRUPTS for Missing G4 Explosives - 7GP" ], where there's tags in other tags.

While I'm NO: "code monkey"; yet I noticed the Images had spacing between their ID-number, and SIZE-denotations, so I moved them to where that were abutting one another now. Quote this to see how it is set up on that, and it doesn't appear to work otherwise too, so follow THIS in the meantime to have it function appropriately about those.

The players aren't going to re-edit a lot. SO I need a good start point. I take it you're suggesting:

Then when I quote the above , it should just work. As mentioned, the fact that they're NOT editting the quote is what's led us to here. How does the result look?

I'll play with grog's solution on a test forum. It looks like he had to add [q="previous poster" } tags, and no way is a responder/quoter going to take time to do so. What I need to know how to do is how to form the base token that can be quoted by someone in a hurry. Currently we use the quote tags to create the original box shape and all.

Thanks for your help so far.

I'm also having a message appear intermittently at the top of these which stated:"Some plugins used by this page are out of date"; to which I am supposed to "update" about them, and wouldn't that then be 'regressing' unto such, were 'moi' actually performing on doing just such?

The quote tag is meant for usernames. You're putting text where it's not supposed to be, so it misformats.

As the famous doctor said, Don't Do That.

Put your text after the ] in the tags.
