Maximum number of nested reply-to?


(se oli tonnin seteli) #1

I’ve noticed that nesting quotes using reply with quote only allows two (or three) levels.

With >'s it nests multiple levels even beyond layout width, which is nice for going full retard in sandbox/drunk topics

I assume this is intentional, but could be configurable - Allowing a few levels more could probably help when reading a summarized topic?

I remember reading something about nested quotes being work in progress (at least regarding images and the word broken was used by codinghorror?) so I’m in no hurry but just wanted to know how this was intended to work in the future.

From my perspective, nested quotes (as in reply to, not HTML style) are not supported at all.

It seems that there is basically no limit to quote replies.

Nested `[``quote``]` [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] [quote="codinghorror, post:2, topic:24607, full:true"] From my perspective, nested quotes are not supported at all.

Sorry, codinghorror. Hopefully you didn’t just get a load of quote notifications. As for >:

That’s from this:

Past this number, it just isn’t rendered.

Hm, that’s weird, I don’t see anything that would prevent them from rendering, like for example:

/* css */
.cooked * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * { display: none; }

Curious.
