Unable to quote bold text

Is it just me or do other users also experience this?


Quoting does work until "a" as shown here:
=> Every selection of arbitrary length up to the "a" gives me the Quote button above the selection.

Quoting does not work when anything of the bold text (WE4626-BKC) is in the selection:
=> as soon as I hit the space after the "a", or latest when I hit the "W" with the selection, no Quote button is being shown.

Can anybody reproduce this?

It is not the first time that I see this, therefore I start to wonder what might be causing this (Discourse or my browser).


I'm seeing the same thing. I get the Quote button if the text is all of the same type (i.e. either all normal or all bold), but as soon as there's a mix I don't see the Quote button. I'm using the latest canary build of Edge. Have tested it in the latest stable build of Edge as well with the same result.

Quoting anything formatted fails now.
Either bolded or a quote from preformatted block fails.
I noticed this maybe 2 days ago.

Same thing with FF78.3.1esr

In the meantime I noticed that also text containing links is affected by this.

Yep, it is apparently anything except plain text.

@thess Have you recently updated our discourse version?
We are now on 2.6.0.beta3. Can we easily switch back to 2.6.0.beta2, just for testing?

Actually if there is a mix of formats it doesn't work. If you select only the bold text it works.

Code quoting seems completely broken:

example code

Same from Chrome canary on Android... Discourse bug confirmed (or intended)?

Recently, I found quoting failed even across a line break; no special formatting seems to be involved there.

I can quote this part:

or this:

but not the concatenation of them.

@tmomas - Yes, the forum was recently updated. I hesitate to consider a downgrade of the forum software due the potential for database migration issues which may be introduced. I would prefer to go forward if possible but, unless there was a specific fix for this available, I'm not sure this will help right now.

One thing on my "to do" list here is an item to take the site off-line for about 15-30mins and do an application rebuild rather than an upgrade. This action, among other things, will re-build all assets (js, css, etc.). I believe it was recommended by the Discourse folks a few years ago to be done a few times a year (quarterly?). The OS is also overdue for an update which I usually do before a re-build.


I believe this issue has been resolved now. I did the aforementioned forum application re-build and it looks like quoting across items is functional once again. While I had the forum down, I also brought the system up-to-date. Enjoy...


Wonderfull, quoting is working again!
Thanks for the update! :slight_smile:
