    Default OK, WTF is up with posting quotes

    For the last several weeks, anytime I've tried to post a something in quotes, the site truncates about 2/3 of the post. I've noticed a few other members stating that they are having the same problem.

    To the admin(s), As always, your work is highly appreciated! If it wasn't for your hard work and dedication, some of us wouldn't have anything to do at work!

    As long as the boobies don't get truncated.

    is it any quote or just some? i had a problem with some crap characters being rejected... but there may be a quote size limit since the upgrade (new feature?). i'll try to check later unless senior kaga remembers how to get to the admincp?

    I had the same issue and it turned out to be something with the HTML. A character next to a parenthesis set it of. I took out the parenthesis and it posted just fine.

    Right. I noticed that, too. Sorry if I was pointing out the obvious. I'm just some guy on the internet, you know.

    Every time I've run into the issue I Highlighted an article from another website then pasted it in "[ quote ] " markups. The preview always looked fine but when I actually submitted the post, it would get truncated. I am running Windows 7 x64 and Firefox.

    did you type quote or hit the button, with or without text selected?

    I usually type the quote tag.

    The first time i noticed the problem, I deleted my post then tried to create another post with exactly the same text and the web site said it was a duplicate post.
