Okay, you've explained to me how to do a 'quote',but what if you only want to quote a few lines or just 1 paragraph rather than the whole post?? :unsure:

Do the "reply with a quote" and then highlight and delete the text you do not want to quote. There may be more elegant ways, but that will work.

Yep, in the entry field where you're typing your reply, and where the quote is (you'll see it surrounded by markers that tell you it's a quote, enclosed in brackets), just go in and delete the text you want to remove from the quote.

Illustrated above.... in the quoted block, just remove the text you don't want. Just make sure you don't delete the code around it.

I've been trying to get this 'box' thing quote too.
I just did a post after adding my new picture. Now the posts came up on the wrong message.
I'm getting the hang of most of this 'tech' stuff but the 'box quote still alludes me.'
I did the quote first and then the reply option wasn't there???

Judy--I just figured out how to make this work, myself--at the bottom right of the post you want to quote, hit the reply button. If you want to quote the whole post, just hit enter a couple of times to get down below the quotes post and add your reply. Then post as usual. If you only want part of the quote, edit out the parts you don't want, but leave the codes (?) around the original post. Hope that makes sense!
