The functionality will be in phpBB 3.1.6, you just have to wait until it's released.
I wrote the thing that does BBCodes in 3.2+.

I posted yesterday an extension that makes this. is pending validation on " https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/extensions-36 ".
hide quote button in last post.
Based on stoker's snippet Don't quote last post .
Demo: http://phpbb-store.it/database-extension-3-1-x.html
I can not attach here ... you find it here, but this in italian language description: http://phpbb-store.it/eliminare-tasto-q ... t2911.html

or if you prefer, send it in pm, the english version

If you want to remove the quote in every post, I can change this easily.

Laughing at the irony in this thread. Anxiously waiting for 3.1.6 so my users can't do this.

And thanks for your extension, Alex. It sounds like another very useful one. :D

Nice that they're looking at it as a bug, not so nice that it's taken them 2 years to think about considering one of these days getting around to maybe looking into exploring ways of fixing it.

Code: Select all

blockquote blockquote blockquote { display: none !important; }
It may not be very elegant but it's an easy way to get the functionality right now.

The feature was added to phpBB 3.2 earlier this week. It cannot be backported to 3.1 though.
Joshy, could you tell me which CSS file I could add this temporary fix?

I just upgraded my board to 3.1 and now that the quote feature doesn't delete the quotes, my forum is being overrun with nested quotes.
