replies with quoted sections no longer attribute the quoted author

Since the web site update, quoted sections no longer show who wrote the quoted text. It's in the BBCode, but just no longer shown.

For instance, this just has a large quote mark at the box, but doesn't list me as the author. The BBcode includes "quote=jlv post_id=564412 time=1565121905 user_id=13054", but the author seems ignored.

The generated HTML has

Code: Select all

 <blockquote class="uncited">
so I suspect something in the fetch and rendering of the HTML.

This problem affects all quoted sections, not just new ones. (go look at any old thread).

I hadn't noticed that, as I was too busy being Irked by the lack of auto-spacing between the quote and the reply text. I now insert 2 "carriage returns" if I remember.

I also can't ban IP addresses, anymore, or even see them.

Good eye, guys!

I've fixed the quote 'author' part, and I've also fixed the padding around the quotation box

Thank you for fixing the author! (although there seems to too much whitespace padding around the quotation box now)
