    Home page (RWO - RedAndWhiteOnline.com ) has some stuffed CSS.

    Check out the Swans v Giants Elimination Final 2021 thread starting with post 902. The Quote attribution section is not properly formed. I don't think it's a user error as there 3 consecutive posts with this error.

    I have no idea what this means. Or whether it matters. Does anyone ever look at the home page?

    It is user error. Or at least, user caused.

    If one person tries to partially quote another post and gets the quote tags wrong, anyone who subsequently quotes that reply will inherit the incorrect quote tags unless they edit them themselves while they are responding (or go back in and edit when they see they have posted a reply with incorrect quote formatting).

    The solution is to be careful when you are replying with quote to a post where the quote formatting is clearly incorrect.

    Yes. I see what you mean. The problem goes back a long way with repeated citations of the original error. It's a bit tricky to notice that there's a problem in those circumstances.

    I think it's usually pretty clear. There's a second name that appears above the text box in which the quote appears. That name will be that of the person you are actually trying to reply to. The name that shows in the text box as "originally posted by" will be the name of the poster that the first person (ie the one you are trying to reply to) replied to. (Sorry, that is a horribly constructed sentence but hopefully you can decipher it.)

    If you are replying (with quote) to a post where there are two names appearing at the top, it's a warning check your own quote tabs to make sure you're quoting what you want to quote, and also that it is attributed to the correct poster.

    How did we end up in this thread? Someone must have flicked the switch on the Post Transporter. Are you okay, Barry? Did you make it through to the other side?
