Hi fellas,

Would someone mind answering this quick question I have.

I'd like to know how Mybb's quote system work. I understand that when 'New reply' button is pressed, a new post is stored in database along with the id of thread we're replying to etc..

But how does it work when you're quoting a user, for instance when you press 'Reply' button, how is the data passed from thread page to another? (newreply.php) and how is that data stored structurally?

Thanks in advance!
please trace instances of replyto in newreply.php , post.php files so that you can analyze how quote is inserted
