    "Quote form" warns for no reason?

    When I click the Quote button, the resulting form has a message at the bottom,
    You have selected 2 posts that are not part of this thread. Quote these posts as well, or deselect these posts.
    (Attached a screen shot. )
    What does that mean?

    You clicked the multi-quote button, the grayish one with a + sign. To quote a post you click the blue one on the left not the one in the middle.

    No. Just clicking the button under your post also shows the same message.

    Hi,

    I could only replicate your issue, when I selected the + sign beneath your OP and that of Aero. then I went to another thread and just used the quote button. The error message displayed as you describe.

    Maybe you selected the + sign in earlier threads either by accident or deliberately?

    I'm not sure how to find the prev thread to reset the + sign so I expect I may need to end the session.

    Ah.., I think it acts like a "copy to clip board" functionality. A new info to me and much useful.
    Now I can easily quote the posts in a thread in a post of another thread.

    Thanks.
