What happens if I miss a period?
No! this is not that period, in-fact my focus is not on the text. Grin
Notice the main topic. It's already locked. Now notice, I quoted the content of the topic successfully even though it's locked. How was it possible?

I am sure 99% of the members including Legendary do not have any clue about this hidden yet very useful feature. I am going to explain the process in a minute. I also have another feature which I am sure we all ignore most of the times. There is another feature I discovered on the other day which is actually useless though. I will list that too. And finally I will have a bonus information which I am sure was never clicked on your mind.

How to quote a locked topic?
There is an easy way but it was not very satisfactory to me. I guess you already know about it.
Code:
[quote author="www.theURLofTHEtopic.com"]the content of the topic[/quote]
the content of the topic

i.e:
What happens if I miss a period?

So, I was looking for a better way to quote a locked topic then I figured out this...
What happens if I miss a period?

Let's start...
You gonna need another topic/post which is not locked. I will pick one of my topic which was created on Scam Accusations board few days ago. I will take this opportunity to aware you with this new trick that the scammers using to scam the members. Here is the topic I will use: SCAM ALERT!!! Lost 0.08 BTC [Please stay safe]

1st - grab some information from the locked topic:


1. Click on the topic/post title
2. Get the message ID
Code:
28250551
3. Get the topic ID
Code:
2766177

2nd - let's deal with the unlocked topic.

1. Click on quote button.

2. Replace the underlined ID next to "quote=" text on the URL with message ID from the locked topic.
Code:
28250551
     2a. Press enter
You will see the contents from the locked topic
3. Replace the underlined ID next to "topic=" text with the topic ID from the locked topic.
Code:
2766177


Now you can do your things. Copy the contents you want to quote and paste it on the topic/post you are replying.  Smiley

Have you noticed the small edit icon on your right bottom corner of a topic you posted?
Well this one I guess we ignore most of the times. At-least I do even though I know it exists. Here is the icon:
Once you click on the icon, it does not load the whole page. Only the content area will load for you to edit/update and once you click on button then it just toggles back and save the updates. The benefit is that you are not loading the entire page to edit/update your post.

The useless delete feature for you to delete others post.
This is actually an error I guess. It does not work for a good reason.
~
Seems like it's a common feature...
If someone comment on your topic then on their post history page there will be a delete button for that post only.

i.e: pugman's post history archived.

pugman made a comment on one of my topic: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4779921.msg43154825#msg43154825


The post history page of pugman and it shows me that I can delete it.


This comment has not made on any of my topic, so I can not see the delete button for this.


A Global moderator can post on a locked topic. My guess is admin, moderator and staffs can do the same.
I didn't unlock it. I can post in locked threads due to wizardry.

Thoughts?

Thoughts: the title is useless, it should describe the thread instead of trying to be clickbait.
I've also seen a similar topic not so long ago. Its trivial information, but too much work to use.

Looks like a lot of work. I just cut and paste the relevnt text, and add quote tags manually.

Alternatively, you can link to the post with a suitable comment.

There are still some thing that this trick could not actually do. Based on your tutorial, in order to quote a locked topic you should copy and paste its contents then what you will only got is the plain text of the locked thread. You won't be able to quote it's image, text format (Bold, Italic, underline, strike through, color, font style and font size), text alignments (center, left,), table, list, horizontal line, quoted reply, and text with links unless you do it manually which will take some time.

That's the reason why you're the opposite of your username. You don't even use "Search" in the forum.

Oh I'm sorry you're just a newbie. Maybe you just don't know what it looks like and where it is located. Just look at the top right area of the forum, it should look like this Smiley

Anyway seems like I was 99% wrong  Tongue
I will lock the topic in the next 24 hours since it does not have much use now.

As mentioned, and as I replied to your last post on this topic, here is a much easier way to do it (that I just did myself in under 20 seconds):

Find the post you want to quote, and click on its title to reload the page to that specific post. Then copy the message number (last 8 digits) from the URL.

Then, in the thread you want to reply in, click on "quote" on any post. In the URL bar on the new page, paste over the 8 digits after "quote=" with your new 8 digits. Press enter.

To ensure the quote links properly, you then need to take the 7 digits after "topic=" from the original post (as in step 1), and paste them over the digits after "link=topic=" in the body of your reply.

I will not called it " quote ", because you can't quote locked thread. You can call it redirect link. I was did before same like. We need copy post and make it quote on our post. We can simply redirect by
Quote
(quote= tread link)
Copy paste quote from other

It will redirect on the thread. I think no need lot of work.

Also o_e_l_e_o given best example and short cut.

Ooops, my bad, it's really working. Actually I read the whole thread but what made me wrong is I didn't try it, I just read it.
I try to change the Id next to "quote" with the message Id of the locked topic and I'm surprised that the whole contents of the locked topic appeared. I thought that the "copy the contents" you're talking about is copy the locked thread like this...

This what makes me a little bit confused because I misunderstood it.

Well, it's really working. Nice tutorial mdayonliner. They might say that something like this topic has been discussed before but I'm still grateful that you've posted it here because if you didn't,  I won't found out a useful trick like this Smiley
