    It works for me (I used it to quote you) but I think someone else mentioned the same issue on another thread.

    HB, for me it only copies the entire post; if I want to quote a small piece of it, like this:
    I have to manually cut the bits I don't want from the quote. (As in, if I highlight just a couple of words, it still adds the entire post to the quote)

    No, I've noticed this too and have been trying to apply a fix. Nothing has worked, so I've now asked xenforo support.

    I think you misunderstand - while the forums have moved domains a lot in the past, I would only consider putting them under my own name or series name in the event of being so successful that either name would be a recognisable brand.

    Additionally, it must also make good business sense to do so - for example, because I'd have a publisher able to help ensure the forums continued whatever my personal circumstances.

    I mentioned all this simply because I'm being open and honest about my long-term goals - which are better measured in decades than years. :)

    Brian, were you aware that it still works OK in the vb3 fixed style? (I just switched to SFF Chronicles style and it stopped working.)

    It works everywhere - except in the SFFchronicles style!

    I'm hoping it's just a line of code gone awry somewhere and easily fixed - otherwise I'll have to customise a new sffchronicles style from scratch, and I'd prefer to avoid having to do that!

    Ah that then makes sense. Thanks for the clearup. Yes, that would make sense for branding purposes, but only if you become a household-type name.

    I've seen it mentioned that becoming an overnight success takes around 10-20 years, so that's my next time frame to work with. :)

    Even then, unless you want to always have your author name and public profile synonymous with this website, it might be confusing for the general public, but that's something for future you to deal with.
