Post editing

Post by ExEMDLOCOTester »

I have had an instance where I responded to a post (without quoting), and the poster revised the post, but I am not sure what was revised. When a post is edited by the author, will all subsequent quotes to that post be edited too?

I think that when you use the quote feature, it's whatever you physically quote. If you quote it, and the poster later changes it, I think that you'd have to edit your post yourself.

I assume that is the way it works too.

From your answer, Mr. Becker, it appears you are assuming too! (No disrespect intended). :wink:

I am trolling for a definitive answer from the "Top" (Webmaster God). :-D

Very nifty. I was indeed assuming, and your quoting of me is the sort of example I was going to look for.

I think you answered your own question...but web God? Otto? Mike? Jessy? TerryC?

Heres our answer: http://www.railroad.net/forums/viewtopi ... 743#323743

The quote does not change, just the original post.

When you quote, it looks like this (i turned coding off for this post):

[quote="Otto Vondrak"]I left a burnt offering at the Altar of the Web God, and I await guidance from above...

-otto-[/quote]


You can edit that, but it's essentailly typing for you- it's not linked to the other post.

Nope. No change. I edited it above. It's a code thing in the new post.
