Some forums have this option and I think it can be useful if you are out of the loop with some threads and you are not sure what's the entire context of the reply/post some users are making.


Example:


POST


User replied:


Post

Yeah, I agree.



I think there should be a button ( I mean like an arrow or smth like that) next to the quote(or something like that) that if you click will lead you to the original post that's being quoted. 

Just an idea :)

I have an idea, for loooooong posts it could be helpful to have a hyperlink to the original comments we quote. Sometimes the comments are so long that we only quote "what matters" for our comments. For new readers it could be helpful to click right on the quote and go to the original comment if they don't want to read the whole thread. Not sure if that's possible or not necessary xD

Created a ticket to do this. We had it before, but turned it off because we didn't know what to do in the case of multiple quotes. We'll probably just have it jump to the first quote in the post..

Is it not possible for both quotes to be with different "arrows"/links?

Just bumping this to the top. It's low priority, but still on our list.
