I use [ exnews ] [ /exnews ]

Seems to work for me since the EX doesn't.


Fake news.

In posting window click on the 'little white cloud' icon just above the form field...

That provides the external content quotes.

Fluffy cloud icon (EX):

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary


Paper icon (EXNEWS):

At one PM today, in Dallas, Texas, President John F. Kennedy was shot by an assassin's bullet.


Big Quote icon:

From Dallas, Texas, the flash apparently official: President Kennedy died at 1 p.m. Central Standard Time, 2:00 Eastern Standard Time, some 38 minutes ago.

--Walter Cronkite, CBS News


Box with Arrow icon (2 steps, name of site, then URL)
wikipedia.com

The problem comes when nesting the BBcodes.

From Dallas, Texas, the flash apparently official: President Kennedy died at 1 p.m. Central Standard Time, 2:00 Eastern Standard Time, some 38 minutes ago.

--Walter Cronkite, CBS News

The URL in a Quote works.

Below does not (EX inside of QUOTE)

From Dallas, Texas, the flash apparently official: President Kennedy died at 1 p.m. Central Standard Time, 2:00 Eastern Standard Time, some 38 minutes ago.

--Walter Cronkite,

CBS News


I think this is how to use EXNEWS, QUOTE, other BBcodes, with URL to source



From Dallas, Texas, the flash apparently official: President Kennedy died at 1 p.m. Central Standard Time, 2:00 Eastern Standard Time, some 38 minutes ago.


--Walter Cronkite, CBS News


I think I learned something today! Cool!

I never really thought about the icons above except to insert a u-tube video. Nesting BBcodes is a PITA. Especially when quoting a thread post where you want to respond to both. You get stuck with "reply to" which is on purpose (I think) to keep people from quoting the whole thread (like using "reply all" in email).

Sorry for the JFK stuff. It was just stuck in my buffer and I got lazy.

Thanks a lot and by the way reply all in an email means reply to everyone in your contacts (depending on your device/ server) better not use it if you don't want the spouse learning of your secretive plans!
