    I think it would be easier and a fairly easy conversion to use "[q]" instead of "

    I have added a Q to the vB code bar in addition to the quote vB code. So you can use them both. If you want to manually type it just use [ q ]Your text here[ /q ] without the spaces.

    Along similar lines, I see more spoiler
    usage than strike usage (although perhaps that's because Software and Movies are my main haunt).



    Unless there's lots of striking in the Hardware sections, wouldn't it be slightly more convenient to make
    into [s ]? Or is strike already too well-established and entrenched?



    Either way works, of course. Think of this post as a "while you're at it..." [​IMG]

    Wouldn't it be easier just to make the Quote button stick the [ quote ] [/ quote ] tags in the box. The pop up is a bit superfluous, especially as it can only take all copied text up to the first carriage return.
    Cheers for the Q's, though!! [​IMG]

    Click on Enhanced Mode and then click on the q and then the close current tag. That will put just the vB code in place and you can type in your message.

    Evan:

    Nope. I am going to leave the stike and the spoiler tags as they are.

    Thanks for the non-stop cosmetic (yet very cool) improvements.
