    Quotes???

    I'm sure this is a painfully silly question:o How do you quote from a post, and include it in your new post? I see it done all the time, but not sure how to do it. Several times I've wanted to respond to a specific statement, or there were other posts in between the post I needed to refer to, and needed to quote the original poster.

    Thanks, FD:)

    Re: Quotes???

    Go to the post you wish to quote and click the "quote" button in the bottom right corner.

    You will also see the comands that start and stop the quoted section in your newly started reply and you can cut, copy, paste, or type manually the same commands to quote within quotes or to break up the quoted portion for inserting your comments.

    Re: Quotes???

    Still a little confused...Do I click quote first, or multi quote? When I click quote, the post pops up, but I can't select and copy the text. If I click the multi quote, it turns red when I click on it. I can then select the text I want to quote, and copy it.

    Thanks, FD:)

    You may also press the quote icon in the editor window or wrap the quote in the [ quote ] and end the quoted text with [/quote ]
    (I added spaces so it would not activate the control)
    Cheers,

    Not sure about multi quotes.

    If you just click "quote" a new reply window should open with the quoted post. Just add your text before or after the [ ]s

    I forgot to mention that right click copy is dissabled in the reply window. You can still do it by highlighting the desired material and then using Ctrl C for copy and then Ctrl V for paste.

    Still not getting it. How do you get the quote to look like the above quote, in it's own highlighted box?

    Help!

    1 - click on the quote button that is in the lower right corner of the post that you want to quote.

    2 - in the text box on the new page that is generated by clicking the button, you will type your new message. You will see something like this when you first get the box:

    [ quote=firemandiver;238897]Still not getting it. How do you get the quote to look like the above quote, in it's own highlighted box?

    Help!

    FD[/quote ]

    3 - type your response either above or below the original message (outside of the [ ]'s)

    4 - click the sumbit reply button
    .
    I guarantee that if you CLICK HERE you will not have your view blocked by clothing
