    New Quote System
    You can now quote across multiple pages and threads in Milepoint. As always, select "Quote" at the bottom of each post - select the multiple that you want. Finally, go to the correct thread you want to comment on and click "Insert Quotes" do display a box where you can rearrange or delete some of the quotes. After that, you can reply to the thread as usual.

    In addition - You can now select only parts of a message to either "Reply" or "Quote" by highlighting text. This was a feature of the previous update, but was conflicting with our Glossary. Got it fixed and it's not working fine.

    Online Status Shown on Profile Picture
    A little green triangle will show on your profile picture in threads when you're online. Still playing with privacy settings regarding this.

    Long awaited, beats the multiple cut and paste we've been doing. Thanks,

    Actually if it was in the same thread you could just click reply on multiple entries and it would all be put into the new post box ... however this new feature is cool in that it allows you to move them around in a drag-n-drop fashion :)

    I also want to point out another new feature on MilePoint.com. Users that are online and have their "show online status" checked will now have a green image in the upper left corner of their avatar.

    Is the "New Profile Posts" tab a new feature as well?

    Seems to be an awesome way to see all the spam posters that haven't been deleted yet.

    Yes this is a new feature and I'm working on cleaning up the spam posts.

    Absolutely - those colonic cleanses must be appealing to some of TOBB lurkers! :D

    Yes, absolutely, as it was always a bit of "mission impossible" to try to do this over multiple pages. Thanks!

    This feature is actually annoying, because it requires two clicks to quote a post. Other forums have a single button to quote one post and write a reply.

    I think we could have the best of both worlds if you only got the second box "where you can rearrange or delete some of the quotes" if there was more than one quote in the stack. Usually I'm just quoting one person so there aren't multiple quotes to move around and the second box becomes both useless and annoying.

    Is that not just the REPLY button we had and still have?

    Slaps forehead.
    Too obvious, I didn't try that, because I just assumed it was the same before, when it didn't bring in a quote.

    Pretty sure it always brought in a quote before :confused: ... that is how I recall it. Maybe my kitty mind is going ;)

    It's always been like that. The +Quote was just added with the Like and Reply... and it's okay, I occasionally have to go to one of our dev sites to get a refresher on what the last version of Xenforo/Milepoint looked like.

    New addition to quoting: You can now highlight select parts of a message and either choose to "Reply" or add to your Quotes instead of doing the full one.

    Definitely! For a while it was being overridden by our glossary, but our programmer worked his magic and got both to play nice.

    Addendum to that tip: You have to select "+ Quote" or "Reply" from the popup box which appears when you select text. If you select "+ Quote" or "Reply" from the links at the bottom right of the post you get the full post rather than just the selected text.
