When replying o a topic I often get 'the number of opening and closing quote tags does not match. Please fix this to submit your post'
A what does that mean?
B I am doing exactly the same as I normally do. This has been a sporadic problem for sometime and is damned annoying.
And not just for me, a friend who went to make his first post had the same problem, gave up and has gone back to lurking instead of contributing.

For every quote in a post there must be one quote opener saying quote and one quote closer saying /quote (both contained in square brackets). If the number of openers doesn't match the number of closers, you get the error message.
