Copy/Pasting and Quoting on the board?

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm having a bit of an issue.

 

For some reason if I try to copy and paste something into the message box, when making a post or replying to one, it doesn't work, nothing shows up.  And also if I click the button to quote someone's post it doesn't show up in the message box.

 

Is there some sort of setting with my web browser, or within the forum that I need to change?  When I try to paste a box comes up asking if I want to allow it to access my clipboard.  I click yes but nothing happens.

 

Thanks,

Place your cursor in your message box and then click 'quote' under the post you wish to quote. You can then delete the parts of that quote that didn't interest you. Leaving the quote you wished to respond too. Does that help?

 

There is no need to copy paste quotes.

Yeah I'm doing that and you get those little bars in the middle of the screen showing something is loading, but nothing shows up.  It's weird it seems really glitchy, I've never had the issue on other forums.

What browser are you using, on what operating system?

it's Windows 7, Internet Explorer 11.I found now that it works if I click on the light switch button at the top of the sort of word panel. It seems it switches to sort of a plain text format, not sure the exact terminology. So you lose the ability to use any of the buttons on the panel, but it lets me quote and copy and paste this way.
