Description

This is a selfish request: I like to use > for quoting, and I'd like them to be translated to blockquotes.

Ask and you shall receive!

The Visual Editor already renders '> ' into a <blockquote> without any code.

However, if you primarily use the plain-text editor in the forums, you can now begin any line with '> ' to start a quote. To stop a quote, use two breaklines.

When the forum post is rendered, the line will be wrapped around a <blockquote>.

Example:

> I just quoted somebody

My reply to that quote.

will transform to:

<blockquote class="bbp-the-quote">I just quoted somebody</blockquote>

My reply to that quote.

The '> ' syntax also works via email as well.
