Quote not working - anyone else?

When I hit "reply" and try to use the quote button it leaves the coding around the content of the quote which I thought would be there only until it was submitted but it was still there afterwards too.  In addition, it indicated that I was replying to myself and not the person I was actually replying to.  ( I did start the initial post that the person commented on and I was replying back to them so I don't know if how they replied had any issues on my subsequent response).

Hi Zoe!

Unfortunately the quote function has been this way since the migration. The easiest way I've found to get it to work properly is to hit quote, copy what shows up, then hit disable rich-text and then paste. Click enable rich-text and the quote will show up without the code. You can manually change the name to whatever you'd like. On some boards (such as this one) for some reason the "who" in the quote (even in the reply-to spot) shows as the OP's name. That's also a known issue.

Please let me know if you need any more help!
