Does the spoiler work properly inside a quote?

But a named quote in a reply does.

Just manually enter a quote tag in front and back and, on front tag, add an equal sign followed by a space (for no name), and get this

Yes, I saw that, but a simple quote has to work. It's part of the editor. Just an indented block with a different background is all that's needed.

The "Quote" label can go.

The editor also inserts INDENT tags which are not functioning.

And the SPOILER sections are centered, which is less than optimal.

Other than that I'm not complaining!

Q: Does a nested NOPARSE work?
A: Yes, it does.

Example. This is how you use NOPARSE:


[noparse]

[quote]
showing how a simple block quote should work
[/quote]

[/noparse]

Testing block quotes and indenting again.

Like so:



before the quote

[quote]This should be a quote.[/quote]

after the quote
[INDENT]This is meant to be indented.[/INDENT]
after the indent



For real:

before the quote

Quote:
This should be a quote.
after the quote
This is meant to be indented.
after the indent

EDIT: doesn't work, and look at the different amounts of vertical white space eaten both within noparse tags and without.

It looks like simple quote blocks are working now.

Quote:
This is a quoted block.
This is after. Should be one blank line before and after the block.
