What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 140 Stack Exchange communities.

Possible Duplicates:
Bug using quote button in Google Chrome on Windows
Blockquote glitch in editor in Chrome 6 and 7

Enter text, mark it and select Blockquote gives some wierd output.

For example:

Hello world

gives this:

Hello world

Hello world> Hello worldHello world

Hello world

It works if there is text after that is already blockquoted (for instance, selecting "For example" above and selecting blockqoute works fine)
The browser I am using is Google Chrome 6.0.472.62, haven't tried it on others. Also found this error on other stackexchange sites (the ones I tried was stackoverflow, meta.stackoverflow, superuser and meta.superuser)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@Tobias: yup. duplicate. should I just delete this question? Or.. wait for someone to [closed] it? –  Default Sep 21 '10 at 11:09
It's up to you whether you delete now or wait for the close votes. –  ChrisF Sep 21 '10 at 11:09
since you didn't stumble upon the other post others might also find your post first, so it may be useful to redirect them –  Tobias Kienzler Sep 21 '10 at 11:11
Although, there is an answer that says v6 is stable and works, but I use 6.0.472.62. I don't go for any betas (unless Google pushes it automatically) –  Default Sep 21 '10 at 11:12
@Tobias: true. I guess I'll leave it to be closed then :) I added the duplicate to the top of the question. –  Default Sep 21 '10 at 11:16
@Michael no need to insert a dupe link, it will happen automatically as soon as 5 votes to close are in –  Tobias Kienzler Sep 21 '10 at 11:18
@Michael: you should edit this fact in in your question, since when it's not a beta it is no exact duplicate... but maybe you should also leave a comment @Jeff on the other bug report –  Tobias Kienzler Sep 21 '10 at 11:20
One more question then, in the duplicate it says "status-declined" as a tag. Does this mean that it's not being fixed? –  Default Sep 21 '10 at 11:20
@Tobias: I thought of it, but I saw that hmemcpy already left a comment that he has a stable version and that the bug remains. Just found out what status-declined meant as well, so I guess it won't be fixed.. :( –  Default Sep 21 '10 at 11:22
hm.. I should learn to search first. Found a second dup: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/63307/… . Jeff also states that it's Googles fault, not his –  Default Sep 21 '10 at 11:29
@Michael: not necessarily, now that it's a non-beta issue that might change. Upvote there, leave a comment, involve... –  Tobias Kienzler Sep 21 '10 at 11:47
@Michael in fact, that is an even better dupe. Maybe you should flag your report for moderator attention and mention that as dupe-source –  Tobias Kienzler Sep 21 '10 at 11:49
