    It seems that the Formatting Help doesn't have any information on quoting? Personally I would find the ability to do that very helpful. It's nice for making it clear what information you're pulling from another source.

    Another forum feature that would be very nice is the spoiler option. Not because there are spoilers but because you can hide long lengths of text, like code, or pictures so that a post is easier to read. Hiding images also makes it easier for people on mobile or in low bandwidth situations to load the page.

    Take a look at our CfUnit project landing page. We are experimenting with various elements look&feel with it.
    Any feedback you can give helps us defining finer configurable elements with we can build our pages to accommodate the software we have written.

    With regards,

      That does look good. Project Link for other people. I apologize, I was talking about the Codesys Talk pages rather than project pages.

      This is a personal preference but I also hate places that require you to know the formatting syntax requiring you to type out everything. Forcing you if you don't know it to be constantly referring to the Formating Help page. Reddit is a good example of that. It's just easier to click a button and have it insert the formatting. The only thing here like that that pops out to me is a lack of an insert link button. Maybe that's because I am not used to writing code and use ladder logic with a macro pad for shortcuts.

      Personally I do appreciate the work that you guys have put in on the Codesys Forge. So I don't mean this to be negative.

      Edit: Another thing I've noticed is a lack of a notification icon for replies to items that I'm subscribed to. You do get emails but I don't see a notification here. On other forums I take advantage of an "Alerts" icon and drop down list both to know that I've got replies and to quickly hop back to pages once I have something to add.
