Disappearing quote lines

DynagripDynagrip destroy everything you touchRegistered User, ClubPA regular
I've seen this in a few instances. The BBcode looks correct, but for some reason only the word "Quote" shows up in normal text and there are no lines or spaces to separate the quote from the rest of the post.

Here's an example.

    Ecoterrorism is actually the single largest terrorist threat at the moment. They don't usually kill people, but they blow up or set on fire very expensive things.

    I've seen the bug before but can't remember what causes it. I'm sure alpha will know.

    Alpha and I were discussing some code changes relating to quotes and the destruction of page views. Some changes were made; perhaps this is related to those changes. I'll have to look at the underlying HTML to see if I can see what's wrong.

    *edit*
    Figured it out. It looks like the blank quote tags aren't being parsed properly. Should be a simple fix, but we'll have to wait for Alpha to get on to fix it.

    Bah. This one is my fault, not yours. I didn't submit a fix properly.

    I am so not taking credit for this fix. SeñorAmor was the brains behind the operation, I was just a monkey typing at a keyboard... an alphamonkey....

    You're lucky alpha didn't make me a mod during his code changes or I'd have to threaten you with jailing.

    I wouldn't actually do it, but, by God, how I would threaten you.

    So does someone have a picture of what this looked like, since the quotes in the links are back to normal?

    Blank quotes (ie, quotes w/out a username) just displayed "Quote" and the quote text.

    Beta signups are over. hehehe


    I missed this error. Is it the blank quote thing Mr. Suave had in his sig for a while? Isn't that old?

    Doc: That's right, twenty five years into the future. I've always dreamed on seeing the future, looking beyond my years, seeing the progress of mankind. I'll also be able to see who wins the next twenty-five world series.

    Nope. The thin lines that are above and below quoted text weren't appearing for non-specified quotes (just
    quote tags)and didn't make the quoted text small. It's fixed now.
