  1. See #454
  2. Yes, that would be a good thing.

… and:

  1. What do you think about having two reply buttons, one "Quote" doing what "Reply" does today, and "Reply" simply adding a reply to a specific comment, without quoting?

This would be especially interesting once we have #1835 (threaded view for comments).

Component: generalwiki
Summary: Comments relatedWiki formatting lost in ">" quoted blocks

I'm updating the summary to reflect the core issue with the quote formatting. Right now it's possible to remove the ">" in front of some types of blocks and they'll be formatted, but still included in the quote.

For example:

> a
{{{
b
}}}
> c

is displayed as:

a

b

c

Coincidentally I just finished reading this Joel on Software article Choice = Headaches. Providing two buttons that do almost exactly the same thing adds unneeded clutter to the UI. It only takes a second to clear the textarea, so I'd rather keep just the one button.

#4095 was marked as duplicate of this ticket. It also noted that blank space is lost when replying to tickets.

For example, this:

> test
>
> test2

shows up as:

test

test2

Keywords: quote engine added

Right, the quoting related stuff in the Wiki engine really needs some improvements. I'm thinking of having "line prefix"-style rules that would be applied in turn, so that one could quote lists or other type of formatting (like tables).

I've seen similar behavior with quoting in the TracBacksPlugin that I now suspect is related to this issue: TH 5456, TH 5457.
