If you search for something and a post includes a quote that is longer than the preview length of the post, there will be no indication that the post begins with a quote. Ideally it would be formatted as a quote and then truanted; otherwise, I think it would still be better if the post was shown as beginning with

Code: Select all

[quote="username"]
. Looking into this more, sometimes it appears to happen even when the whole quote is shown - is it if the full sentence or paragraph after isn't showing either?

search.php?keywords=%22We+are+getting+m ... mit=Search

Judging from these it probably should remove the entire quote from the preview.

Hm, yeah. Removing the quotes is probably the best option. I don't see any other formatting than some quotes either.

search.php?author_id=44996&sr=posts

it shows some posts that looke like i made them, but those words were actually spoken by someone else lol :)
like the part that says "Prehaps some reward for launching all parts" - that wasnt me :)
