I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry. Today on my site the quoting works fine. Yesterday, despite previously having first a while ago not worked in any browser, it worked in Edge and Opera but not Chrome or Firefox. Now unexpectedly working as expected in all.
I have never had any plugins apart from what Discourse comes with. I am on 2.6.9.beta6, updated to the minute with the latest commits. Running on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS on DigitalOcean droplet.
So this is great. But mystifyuing. Obviously sofware cant fix itself, so there must be some tiny chnage in OS, browser, or Discourse that is influencing this, but may never be able to be identified. The only thing I can say is that I have ‘graceful’ theme installed, and it has underdone some turbulence in terms of quite a few updates in the last days. But I am not using that theme. Is it possible that it has to be removed and not just not used? I find it odd that themes/plugins/etc that are not is use should upset things, but I am prepared to believe it (just barely).
Having raised this issue to begin with, all I can say now is that today’s exact situation with everything updated, no plugin ring-ins, all is fine. It’s almost embarrassing, and yet I swear the issue was there and causing annoyance.
That’s where I am now, but I am sure there is more to this story, as others are certainly seeing what I was.
