Thanks for the reply. We have the Simple WYSIWYG extension, which may be involved.
The obvious question is does it go way if you disable editor? If it does this discussion belongs in the extensions discussion area. Unfortunately it's not possible to move this topic there so you would have to start new one and you can reference this topic.
Just taking a stab at this, does the problem user have any special characters in their name? Space, comma etc?
I did not disable the editor, but found the issue is with a space in the user's name. Their name is two words. We do have a few users also with two words, the same problem exists with them.
I have a separate test forum and experimented there. I created a user there with two words, with the same problem. If I replaced the space with a hyphen, the problem went away. Replacing the hyphen back with a space and the problem recurs. Experimenting back and forth can be done with an existing post. That indicates the problem only occurs with the post is quoted.
Also, on my test forum, I disabled the Simple WYSIWYG Editor, and the problem goes away. I had previously found another problem with that extension and posted it in the extension's area. At the time, I emailed the developer asking him if he was still supporting the extension. He replied back that he had no time. It was tested only through 3.2.x, so I realized I was using it with some risk, but I found no other extension, and it provides functionality our forum users need.
I could start another topic in the extension area, but I noticed subsequent topics after mine have not been responded to. If there were an alternate extension, I would be very interested. In addition to other issue I posted there, the extension inserts blank lines each time a post is edited or quoted, so it becomes annoying.
