Quote:Fast Quote

Quote has never been so easy!
This plugin provide very fast quote option - select text and click the Fast Quote button (see picture below).


This additional Fast Quote button provide super-fast option to quote selected text. instead of the whole post.
It supports whole post also (just click it), or only selected area.
It also supports mycode/bbcode in quoted posts.

The Fast Quote button is placed between the Delete and Reply  buttons (see pic.)

With the new smilies, it seems some words automatically become smilies - like skeptic/skeptical. Does anyone find that's a problem?

Skeptics

Yeah, it's not doing it now. I looked at the forum rules post yesterday and all the "Skeptics" had been changed to smilies, and I couldn't change them back without hitting the "disable smilies" button at the bottom of the edit post function.

We've just made some changes which are mostly aimed at improving the forum's placing in the results of Google (and other engines) searches, especially for such phrases as "parapsychology forum". The jargon term for this is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). The changes we've made are to have:
  • Installed the Google SEO plugin and activated all of its features. The features of note are:
    • Friendly URLs. These apply to threads, forums, users, etc. Best described by example. Take the thread with title "Psi Text Resources Thread". The various supported URLs are:
      • MyBB default: <http://psiencequest.net/forums/showthread.php?tid=4> [go there]
      • MyBB default "SEO" form: <http://psiencequest.net/forums/thread-4.html> [go there] (this has been the URL form up until now, from shortly after the forum began).
      • Google SEO plugin form: <http://psiencequest.net/forums/thread-psi-text-resources-thread> [go there] (the new, and current, form).
    • URL redirection. Both of the former two URL forms are automatically redirected via a 301 HTTP response to the new URL form, so the change is seamless for people using the forum, and so that search engines know (because the 301 indicates a permanent redirect) to update their canonical URL for the content.
    • Autogenerated "description" meta tags. These are used by search engines when indexing content. The plugin generates them for thread pages only, based on an extract from the first post on the page. For example, on the first page of the example thread above, the plugin autogenerates as content for the meta "description" tag: "Please post links to text files (journal papers, Web articles, etc.) here." For the second page, it autogenerates: "(2017-08-21, 09:01)Chris Wrote: Yes - but proponents don't get off lightly either. For example, this review, entitled &quot;Wrong About Almost Everything&quot;, deals with a book by one A. Tsakiris: http://peli".
    • Returns a 400 HTTP response code ("Not found") for URLs to non-existent content. By default, MyBB returns a 200 HTTP response code ("OK") for such URLs. The 400 response prevents search engines from indexing the error messages returned for non-existent pages. No big deal, just a "nice to have", although the plugin also updates the error page so that it provides a text box, pre-filled based on the URL, by which to search our site via Google for a matching page, which I think is a pretty neat feature.
    • Autogenerated sitemaps. Used by search engines as an aid to discovering content. Helps us to get new content indexed as soon as possible.
  • Added a "description" meta tag for the forum's index page. The current content of the tag is: "A discussion forum based around parapsychology: the scientific research into psi, the paranormal, and extended/anomalous consciousness phenomena."
  • Added several subforum/category descriptions, adjusted some subforum names, and changed the placement of a subforum. The descriptions, added primarily for SEO purposes, have been added to all subforums of the "Extended Consciousness Phenomena" (ECP) category, as well as to the category itself. The reordered subforum is "Psience Quest Interviews", which we've moved to the end of the ECP category's listing. The forum name changes are:
    • Forum Questions and Suggestions => Forum Questions, Suggestions and Announcements. For better descriptiveness rather than SEO.
    • Psi Phenomena (ESP, PK, Remote Viewing, etc.) => Parapsychological Research into Psi Phenomena (ESP, PK, Remote Viewing, etc.). For SEO.
    • Near-Death Experiences => Near-Death Experiences (NDEs). For SEO.
Questions, comments, suggestions, criticism, etc very welcome.
