I've noticed that when quoting multiple people in the same topic, you get to reply to it and it eventually becomes one long quoted text box. Check out the last reply in the general chat thread as an example. Anyway to fix this?

Multi quoting is a pet hate of mine. The posts get so long, there are times when some members will delete most of their quoted text that re end tag the quote like i did in mine when i quoted and it ended up in the quoted message.

I know, right? One of the few things I've hated about phpbb but I know other software has this issue too. Hopefully it's an easy fix

You have to make sure that what you type is outside the quote tags. Click after the [/quote] and hit return before typing your response to a quote.

If you want to quote multiple people, hit "Post Reply" to go to the full reply and use the quote buttons in the topic review. It will put a quote of the post wherever the cursor is in your post.

It looks like the maximum quote "nesting depth" (or the amount of quotes that can be inside each other) is set to three. Any more quotes than that inside each other will cause it to break. If you'd like, I can change that to a higher number.
