Nested quotes are halfway eaten when trying to quote



  • I'm not sure this discobug is known yet, but I've noticed that when you quote a post ('Quote whole post') with nested quotes, the innermost quote gets eaten. Only for the first quote block though; the rest get through correctly.

    Of course, it's very possible that it's a discofeature.

    I'll try to make a sample post.

    So if you quote this post, the first nested quote gets eaten. I think.

    ...And it did. Whee. Bug or feature?

    Been a bug since Atwood was just a glint in his father's eye ;)



  • And it seems I got a bonus bug here! Why doesn't the second set of [quote]s render?


  • sockdevs

    That's also an old bug ;)

    Because you're Doing it Wrong

    Nested quotes are evil. Formatting in quotes is evil. Welcome to Discourse.

    You can pretty much thank TDWTF that at least one level of quoting kinda works. And our custom CSS for a few <code> and similar fixes in quotes.
