I have a basic forum and am having problems with the [quote] button. What happens is when the [quote] button is clicked, it gets the appropriate text and sticks it into the message textbox like so
[quote=username]the quoted message here[/quote]
so that part works fine, and i even save it to the database at it is above.
how do i format this so it looks similar to the text in normal forums when the new message is posted which includes the quoted text?
i'm guessing css???
any suggestions on how its done?
