How to un-quote in forum posts?

Recommended Posts

I want to post something on a forum topic. I decide to quote. I change my mind. There's NO WAY to get rid of the quote. If I delete the text the empty quote box will remain there like a mocking monument to my indecision! And if I leave the page and come back days later the evil quote box will still be there! I just ended up deleting all the "not so smart moments" topic (yes, I get the irony) trying to get rid of a weeks old empty quote box (bad luck, I had started it so the exterminating option came up).

Try using the backspace key on your keyboard, with the mouse cursor below the quote box.

That works for me.

I quoted your first post in this reply, then just hit the backspace key and as you an see the quote is gone.

Holy frag, it's true. Now that's embarassing.

In my defence I can say it still doesn't work from smartphone, and that led me to give up on pc as well.

I don't have a smart phone so I can't help you there.

Yeah, there is no way to un-quote on smart phone. You have to log off and then log back in if you want to ge rid of the quote box.
