OK Guys and Gals....Rich and I just got off the phone and the reply with quote is back to the previous functionality.  You can access it through hovering over the gear symbol.  Rich is looking into alternatives as far as dealing with the misuse as discussed above. 

Ha!  You da man (men).

Thanks for working to restore this.

so the auto reply is coming with all posts, not just after reply with quote.

I can confirm this is happening.  I got an email warning after I made the reply immediately above.  There are no photos in my quote, as you can see, but I still got the email.  All FYI.

On a positive note, the fact that the software vendor is available to make changes on a Sunday morning is impressive.

Thanks again for working with this.

The code I wrote to send these alerts is not working the way I intended. It is looking for "inline media" however, the system evidently considers Avatars and smilies as inline media so it sends the alert on every post. I have shut it off pending resolution.

Thanks Steven, however the "software vendor" here is just me, working out of the motor home parked in Paintsville Lake State Park in Kentucky on a cold and rainy Sunday morning.

I wonder if those that do the reply with quote are NOT aware that they can delete whatever part of the post they don't want to have re-shown?  I often will do a reply with quote that had a bunch of pictures and delete all of them except the one or 2 that I specifically want to address my comment to.

But as with all "please, do this" requests here they seem to be ignored by a vast many.  I remember Scott mentioning a few times in relation to his Photo Fun threads to no avail.  Sad.  Not to mention inconsiderate IMO.

Rich, hope you can find a "fix" for the abuses in the reply with quote feature--it's been a pleasant several days not having to see the redundant, thoughtless repetitions the feature generated so often.

I agree. Maybe if more participants would send alerts to the moderators, with the "Report Reply" feature, the Moderators could simply delete those offending posts. Maybe those folks would gradually get the idea?

I know this is kinda old now, but fyi recently Ive had one quote that skipped reposting the picture I wanted to refer to, and another couple of posts where I couldn't remove a picture from a quote nor any text. 

Actually, not being able to remove the photos in a quote has been common a long while. I'm guessing that is the root cause of people falling out of the "short quote" mindframe. They just couldn't make it go away.

I edited out all the uneeded space eaters in quotes until I lost the ability to edit them out.   

  I normally edit out a quoted photo/text with the backspace key.(droid)  

Sometimes the backspace key won't change anything but what I type.

If I backspace in quotes photo or text, it just reloads whatever I erase and moves the cursor to the end of the quote.

FF, Kiwi, Brave, Duck Duck Go and other browsers. (these work best for me here... FF only so/so. Google spellwreck is better behaved on the other browsers that use Google base code, than Googles own browser.)

Removing a photo from a quoted post is easy. Click on the photo to highlight it and press the DELETE key. Done.

[REMOVED TEXT]

What does "...lost the ability to edit them out..." mean? You can edit the text in a quoted post just like any other text. I just removed some of yours above.

OUCH! That's a very time-consuming way to do it! A better way is to click and drag to highlight all the text you want to remove, then press DELETE.

That is not normal text editing behavior and is something unique to your machine. You shouldn't be editing text with the BACKSPACE key anyway. Use the click and drag method.

[REMOVED TEXT]

Im on a droid, no delete key exists. The backspace used to delete photos just like text. Time consuming, but when I could, I edited quotes this way. (long ones too)

Sometimes a backspacing does work. Sometimes not. More often not over a year or so's time. Working more lately.

Click and drag, not an option for droids. 

"Highlight" to copy-paste doesn't give a delete option. copy/paste doesn't cut here either, it just copies. That goes back 4-5yrs.

5 devices , different mfgs over time, all basically the same behavior's. I bet Ive tried 20 browsers in depth. I use what works "this quarter".

I don't necessarily expect changes, but it's an fyi for your end (I thought you'd like to know at least), and an excuse why an edit may not happen to some folks quotes.
