Am I just being stupid or is there no quote button on this new version of things? The button that has a picture of quotes is [ offtopic ][ /offtopic ]. I know that the correct code is [ quote ][ /quote ] but I admit (fully) to being lazy sometimes. :lol: :P :P :P

Hi,

It's not too obvious, but yes: it's this one there:

Funny, I've been using those quotes and they don't say 'offtopic' for me.
Or maybe you use quotes some other way?
Oh, I see--it's when you are actually in the composition frame. I always pick what I want to quote by choosing the little quotations when I'm on the post I'm quoting. The limitation of this is that I can only quote one person at a time. Well, now I know how to do it the other way. :P

That's very weird. I wonder why it comes up as offtopic for me.....

Off Topic
This one is off topic, and it certainly looks like quotes

If you think it's not going to be used, I could remove it :idea:
