Manually Quoted Sections do not show up in Threaded View

    I've only just discovered that quoted sections do not show up in "Threaded" view.   

    If someone posts a long list of questions, I'll often manually quote the different sections so I can reply to them individually.  Relache just posted a quote which didn't show up and caused total confusion.

    Is there a way that manual quotes can be made to show up in the threaded view?

      It could get pretty confusing to the various threads to post it multiple times under the various threads. 

      I think the best way is to ether reply with an answer that pertains to a specific thread, or if you do a multi quote, break the threaded view.  Although, this isn't perfect, but it works OK in chronological view.

        Sorry Paul, I'm not sure what you mean by "break the threaded view".   I always work in chronological myself - my concern is that many people use the threaded view and don't even know the chronological option exists.

    So if I start a new forum thread, and I need to manually quote something someone said that was not in any forum thread, I should just not use the actual quote tag to quote it because that's how the forum works best for all users.

    Got it.

    I'd just get rid of the Threaded View option altogether. Failing that, make Chronological View the default, if it isn't already

    Sometimes I manually copy what I want to quote and italicize it to distinguish it from the text of my response.
