Why do forum responses now contain the previous post? It's making me dizzy. Can we control for it individually?
If you reply to a post (hit the reply back button)-- from the post, it quotes the post you are replying to.
If you reply to a post and hit the reply button and click on the blue link "import and edit the quote" you can select a part of the quote to appear above your reply like this.
If you simply "Post a reply" from the big grey button at the bottom, no quote appears. It is a the choice of the replying person-- though some people may think that the rebly back arrow is the only way.
If you are rreplying to a person wo has posed several steps back-- I think it is useful to quote (if the item is'nt too long.)
I hit this all the time to reply to a specific person and there's never been that "Rochelle wrote" box before. I'm so confused. I need a nap.
You won't see it on your own post--- until you come back later to the page.
You have to click the 'import and edit' link and delete the portion of text you don't want.
If you don't want any previous post repeated, which can be truly annoying after a super long post, simply click the black 'reply' button at the bottom right of the page.
I think I hit something by mistake earlier. I've never seen this before.
Top right of thread.
"Threaded" or "Chronological". You must have hit "Chronological" by mistake. Hit "Threaded".
Love you, WryLilt. I remember the exact time I hit something yesterday by mistake but didn't know what it was. Thanks.
Thanks Rochelle and rebekahELLE for trying to help this clueless hubber.
You're welcome, Jan. I didn't know if you were used to chronological or threaded. I always use chronological simply because threaded drives me crazy. It seems easier to follow a thread in chronological order, but the constant repeat of posts can be annoying as well.

When replying to a forum post, we are given the opportunity to "import and edit the quote." If the comment to be quoted contains an image, only the text below the image will be imported, the image and any text above it is not captured.As long as you're looking at that code anyway, it...

Please.Personally I think its removal slows down the forum activity of the more experienced users.I like to quote people though remove parts of the quoted text that I'm not specifically referring to. Apparently a lot of others do it that way too.If there's any chance of that making a return it...

Some of us are encountering an issue in the forum. On the front page, it will indicate that responses have been made since we last participated in a thread, but when we click on the name of the most recent respondent, rather than being taken to that response, we come to the start of the last page...

With some users using the threaded view and others using chrono some threads are becoming intelligible Ex)http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/34590#post769233You'll see in chrono view that one hubber responds in a conversational manner 3 posts in a row-in that view it makes no sense ..(As Misha points...

Once again, I have found a person responding to my original post starting a forum thread instead of replying to a comment that was a reply to mine.I was talking about photograph citation including , among other things, the fact that I prefer to use my real name instead of a pen name something like...

Hi,A little bird told me that HubPages are considering charging Forum Users for the amount of space that they take up when they reply to Forum posts, and quote screen after screen of someone elses comments above their own one line contributions.This makes the forums very hard to read, as it's hard...
