I tried to post a reply to a post (a couple of hours old) and was told "This topic is too old to reply, so, it's locked now. Thanks."

There no option to use QUOTE, so just reply without quote. Anyway you may write the tags and quote the previous message, manually. Like this:

If is that you meant.
BTW which topic you're mentioning ?

All other phpBB forums I have used allow "quote".

If it does not work, why is it there - even worse provide a misleading error message?

Is your timezone set correctly in preferences?

@moonman, this issue has existed for ages and has been frequently complained about with no response from the maintainers. E.g. see viewtopic.php?f=8&t=12751.

The threads are locked so that there is less necroposting and less spam and given how many people maintain the forum it isn't going away.

Did changing the timezone to a correct/different one not help? I don't know where the issue is coming from with quote buttons.

@moonman, I suspect you are not seeing the issue which the OP and the other thread I linked to is complaining about.

If I click on the Quote button on your reply above which is from 9 mins ago, I immediately get the error message the OP refers to. My timezone is correct at UTC+10. Does it in both Chrome and Firefox.
