Summary

I have identified a number of bugs for your forums and have a number of feature requests to make.

Bugs

Code
When creating a new post, the forums provide some nice formatting functionality, such as bold text, italic text, etc.  One such functionality is the [ CODE ] feature, which should provide preformatted monospace text. However, I do not believe this is working. It does not appear to do display preformatted text. It does not appear to display monospace text. Interestingly enough, one effect of using CODE is that it will not display a backslash (\) - ASCII character 92. I doubt this is intentional.

Example:
Code
[i]Italics[/i]
[b]Bold[/b]
[u]Underline[/u]

Backslash: \

- Heading
  - Sub heading
    - Information


Modify
After creating a new post, I am able to modify that post, using the the button at the bottom of the post.

However, once there is a reply made to that post, I am unable to modify the original post.  Even if I am the one who has replied to that post (to add additional information), I am unable to modify the original post - however, I am able to modify my new post.

I believe I should be able to modify my posts for subject changes, content, spelling corrections, clarification, etc. at any time, regardless if there has been a response made to my post or not.

Example:
Post I created and responded to

Feature Requests

Quote
When viewing a thread, there is a button at the upper right hand corner of each post labeled "Quote".  Clicking on this button does not appear to have any action / affect if there is no text selected.  I would expect the quote function to quote the entire post if not specific text is selected.

Preview
Please add functionality to the forums that allows users to preview a post before posting it to the forums.  It can be frustrating when creating a long email detailing a bug and accidentally forget to close a tag.

Subscribe
Can you please offer some method that allows users to automatically subscribe to threads they post to.  This is instead of having to select the "Subscribe for new messages" checkbox each time.  That is too easy to forget sometimes.

Upload
Would there be any way that you would allow users to upload small files to your server, such as screenshots or configuration files.  This would assist in creating bug threads or ask questions.
