Yeah, when a person has a quote up the quote box is REALLY tiny, and what they said is under it, that's about it.

The above quote looks really tiny to you?

I ask, because it appears normal to me.  I am guessing that you might be seeing a quote that was not done correctly.  You have to highlight everything you want quoted (or hit "quote" when you respond to the post) and the quoted text has to be inside the quote open and quote close:

Code:
[quote author=Patient7 link=topic=118029.msg182995#msg182995 date=1203031486]

Is anyone else seeing the error described?

Well, the problems not occuring on my posts, but I've seen a couple quotes with that problem.  That could be what's happening to these particular posts, if you give me a moment I can find one.

Okay, it took me a while but I found one, it was in off topic discussion, other topics, if you could live in any time period what would it be?, page 3, the second post by BTM.  Here's a link.

OK I see it...
He used the quote feature incorrectly.

He used the quote in brackets but forgot to add the text in between them.
Something like this:

{quote}{/quote}

I changed the brackets to those perenthese looking things.
If you use brackets instead of the perenthese things and don't put text in between them, it looks like this:

Quote


By the way, anyone know what the actual term for those perenthese looking things are?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
