If I do a quick reply by clicking the "Quote" button on someone's post, the quote appears in the quick reply box with a bunch of HTML tags, not just BBcode. If I click "More Reply Options" to get the full editor, the HTML tags go away. Is there any way to make them not appear in the first place?

As an example of what I'm talking about, I just quoted myself and got this in the quick reply box:
<p>[quote name='Tesseract' timestamp='1387843573' post='424696']<br />

I don't see that. Works fine when I click "Quote" on anyone. Not sure what you are doing wrong ;) Maybe your editor mode is in html, instead of standard?

I just quoted myself with no edits.

Hmm, I don't even know how to get it to do what you get.

Looks fine.  Reboot!  Your browser might be confused.

OK, interesting data point: it works as expected if I multiquote both of you.

Where would I check that? The help refers to a "Board Settings" section in the control panel, but I can't find it.

I think it's actually been doing this since the last forum upgrade, so several reboots and cookie resets since then.

Very odd. Has anyone else seen this issue?

I haven't seen this in quite a while, but there were infrequent occasions when I did see HTML tags in the reply box. That happened usually when building up the page was delayed or slowed down for one reason or the other, like a slow connection or a general tardiness of the browser.

Try punching the quick reply, just let it have it right in the box.  I'll hold your coat.
