Nested TagQuotes?


#1

Question about quoting - didn’t think it was enough to need a thread, but PM reply was to make one, so here goes:

@codinghorror, Is there a way on Discourse to nest quotes using the [quote] tag?

In other words, simple nested blockquotes using > and >> (and so on) work fine, but I haven’t yet been able to determine a way to place any other quote-indent inside of tagged quotes, such as in this post - the best I can do is bold the subquote’s author and add a > to clarify that it is, in fact, a subquote. It works, but it looks sort of funny, and doesn’t actually tag any of the inner quotes as a “user quoted in…”.

Since my initial PM, I have run across this post on the main Discourse forum, but it doesn’t look like it was ever addressed.

We currently don’t support nested quoting.

However, you will see nested quotes if you expand a quote, which itself contains a quote. (To expand a quote, click or tap on the top bar of the quote, like so)
