Frequently Asked Questions

Q)
Why don't you have a border around the quote?
A) It defeats the purpose as to why I created it. It was created because there's a difference in how the QUOTE and other (ie. PHP, HTML, CODE) bbcodes are displayed. For example, the default QUOTE bbcode is displayed with a 100% width whereas the others are a fixed width. To me, this wasn't consistent with the overall design. It looked fine by itself but in combination with others it just didn't flow. At least not for me.

Q) Why don't you use an endquote?
A) It just doesn't look right when using multiple quotes. It's actually a bit confusing.

Q) Why does my quote image not display?
A)
  1. Make sure you uploaded the image.
  2. Check custom CSS and:
    1. check that the location of the image is correct (default : /forums/images/misc/q.gif)
    2. check that the name of image is correct (default : q.gif)

Just thought I might provide additional quote images.

Attached are .png versions of the quote image. These can be used on any background and you won't see any white bits hanging off them.

All you need to do is change

Before placing it in additional css. If you want to use the white quote image change the file name to "w-q.png". Oh, and don't forget to upload the images, hehehe.
