Quoting

Something that has been annoying me.

You can't embed 3 quotes within each other.

Any way of getting around that because it didn't happen in EFH 1.0.

No. It's designed to cut down on the quote within quote within quote ad nauseum that the earlier versions of phpBB permitted. It gets hard to read a thread when every post quotes every post above it.

Quotes within quotes are very useful (the difficulty of doing that in vBulletin is one of it's weakest point IMO), but there's got to be a limit. I'm not stuck on three as a maximum though if you think more would be worthwhile - certainly I'm open to suggestions.

Yeah I can understand why you've done it. I've only gone to quote and its stopped me twice so it doesn't happen all that often.
