Hi there everybody. 

I'm having difficulty with quotation tags. It is often my way to manually copy/paste some text into a post, and manually enclose it with

tags, and then write my own words of wisdom beneath it. 

Currently, this doesn't seem to work. When I hit save, both the original "quote", and my Words Of WisdomTM, are enclosed in an outer quotation shell. Moreover, if click on "edit", then whilst I can edit the text in the inner quote, I can no longer edit my Words Of WisdomTM

To illustrate: below is a quotation, followed by some WoW.

blah blah blah this is a manually inserted quote, created by typing on the keyboard, I have preceeded this sentence with "quote" (in square brackets), and finished it with "/quote" (in square brackets

And here are some Words of Wisdom TM. Notice how everything is in a common quotation box ? 

Oh b*****.. it's behaved normally on this occasion. Lets try it in a new post.

Don't worry, you're not mad ..... I have been having the same problems (using Firefox btw)

when I add another quote like this by typing [ quote]  [ /quote] it didn't work - but I could add quotes by using the " icon instead.   Just slightly annoying because I am used to using [ quote] [ /quote] ...



And we#ll see now what happens ;)

And here are my Words Of Wisdom TM, which are BELOW the closing /quote element. Hence these words should appear BELOW the quote, and on a plain background (e.g. not as part of the quotation. 

 

. (subsequent edit) .. AHA.. can you see the problem ? The bit that starts "Must have been a glitch" are within the quote. The second sentence -  now incorporated into the quote - was BELOW the closing-quote element.  And they cannot be edited.
