No need for any "Extension magic", if only the post_id would be referenced.
- If a user is renamed, the new name will show up.
- If a user is deleted with posts retaining, the quote would show "Guest" or the former username - depends on the implementation, both informations are present in the quoted post
- If a post is deleted, no user is shown, but the quote is still there
- If the post owner is changed via mcp, the new user will show up
The present behaviour is completly new, the old behaviour was (and is still working):
[quote="Name"]something with a name[/quote]

It is not self explaining to a "normal" user how to built those parameters when writing a "clever quote" by pressing the quote-button in posting area.3Di wrote:the user_id (only together with the user name)
The name is quite easy: "Enter the user name you want to quote after a equal sign" - but what about the others? post_id and user_id may work for a experienced or "clever" user, but the time as a unix timestamp?
