Selecting text doesn't quote the emojis

    Yep, that's about right :smile_cat:

    Selecting the text.

    Ok, I suppose you'd have to recognize the images and then reverse it back to the emoji equivalent. Um.... maybe that would add too much overhead.
    But I wonder if there's a way to just quote the raw?

    Aside from the full-quote button? No idea.

    Also, isn't this technically a bug?

  • When you hit the quote reply button that hovers over selected text, the only thing I can imagine it doing is grabbing the selected content.

    Since the selection is no longer includes raw formatting data, the selection has the literally image of the emoji and not the :blah: of it.

    So the only option I can think of is checking if the image is a forum emoji image and replacing it with the :blah:

    However, I did notice that the :blah: is the title for the image, and class is emoji, so this will probably be easy to accomplish.

    Example

    <img src="/images/emoji/emoji_one/smile_cat.png?v=0" title=":smile_cat:" class="emoji" alt="smile_cat">

    ā€¦I was just about to post that! :laughing:

    Meh, I've stuck it in Bugs now :smile:

    The best part is when it strips the list formatting and shoves everything in a single line...

    Yeah, that's not raw. The first quote is missing, and the other is, uh, escaped?

    I'd go with "half-baked".

    But it does retain emoji properly :stuck_out_tongue:

    Well, that about sums it all up, yes.
