Quoting multiple posts, and blockquote button issue
Often on my forum people attempt to quote multiple posts, or quote the same post multiple times. On almost all forums on the internet clicking "quote" adds that post to the reply box, often at the point where the user is already writing. However with wpforo clicking quote on any post again (or on another post) deletes whatever is in the reply box and puts that post there. A user is unable to quote multiple members at once or easily quote the same post multiple times (as they often want to do if the post is long and they are attempting to address specific paragraphs). This issue is hindering discussions since users are very used to forum quotes functioning the other way.
Exacerbating the issue (and my second concern) is that many users attempt to click the "blockquote" button in the reply field first to paste their quote and write the reply under it. However, when they do this the reply field doesn't create a blank space under the blockquote to write in, and can not write anything outside of the block quote! If you go to the reply field at the bottom of this page and click block quote you will see what I mean: You can type in the block quote, but cannot exit it in any way. I think this could be easily remedied by automatically creating a blank line under the block quote whenever it is inserted via the reply field button, as is done when using the reply post button?
Thanks devs for the work so far. I've got the ad package and am looking at the PM system package, but I want to ensure that the forum is functioning properly for how people will be using it first.
Thank you TGW,

Please note, wpForo doesn't have Multiquote function yet. They should quote one by one in separate replies or use the simple Quote button. Just copy the text, paste in editor, select and click on quote button Like I did it here.
The Multiquote feature is already in our to-do list. We'll do our best to make it available with future releases as soon as possible.

They just need to press on Enter twice:

The multiple quote block function works fine on my forum. However, I have an icon (surround in red) that appears and hides the entire text. How to remove it? I see you do not have it when you use the quote block.
