To include a quote from someone else's post in your reply is very easy... :thumbright:

STEP 1: Simply click on the Image button of the post you want to quote...
You'll find it in the top right hand corner of their post... :hello2: Yup, way over there...

Image

STEP 2: When you click on the quote button in their post, you'll see this...

Image

STEP 3: If you don't want to include ALL of their post in the quote, highlight
the parts you don't want and simply delete them, [-X being very careful to
leave
intact the [ quote="Hippy Chippy"] and [ /quote] at the start and
finish of the part of the quote you want to keep, as shown below...

Image

STEP 4: Add your own comments below the quote to reply to it, like so...

Image


STEP 5: Hit [Submit] and your post will then look like the one below...

Image

Which you'll agree, looks smarter/ less confusing than doing it this way...

Image

i.e., by just using quotation marks on a 'copy and paste' from an earlier post...

Hope that helps Folks... Here endeth the lesson on 'QUOTING'...! :notworthy:

=; BTW... You can also quote a post from an unrelated Topic, posting it into a Topic of your choice... :type:


1. Hit the Image button on the post you want to quote...

2. Select all of the text (the quote) in the panel, then Crtl+X to cut it out...

3. Hit the 'Back' <- button (top left of screen) on your browser...

4. Go to the Topic you'd like to post into, hit 'Post Reply'...

5. Go Ctrl+V to paste the quote into your post... (You can edit the quote if you don't want to use it all...)

6. Add your own message (and Smilies) below the quoted text...

7. Hit 'Submit'... voila...! :dontknow:

=; Notice at the very beginning of a quoted post that there is a :something: within two semi-colons..? It happens when the person's
post you're quoting started their post with an 'emoticon', or 'Smiley', like I just did with this =; at the start of this sentence...
Image
When you click on :type: EDIT, you'll notice there's NO SPACE between the right bracket ']' and the first semi-colon ':'...
Image
Simply put a :type: SPACE between the right bracket ']' and the first semi-colon ':' then hit SUBMIT...
Image
There you go, all fixed...!!! :yea:
