Ok, I know how to do just one quote (by clicking reply bottom righthand corner) but how do you quote several different people in a reply?

Thanks :)

Okay, here goes: You highlight what you want to quote by left clicking your mouse, and going over what you want to quote. You right click what you've just highlighted, and choose 'copy' from the menu that comes up. Now in your reply box, you click on the quote button (the one with the talking bubble, which strangely is square), which brings up a first quote thing (whatever you call it). Then you left click right beside that, right click, choose 'paste' from the menu, which will post what you copied, click on the 'quote' button again, and there you are.

If you want to put in who the quote was from, you put it into the first quote thing, like this (and I will misspell it on purpose, or it will mess up this post)

It will then show that I took the quote from you.

Okay, it messed me up the first time I tried this. I wasn't sure if I told you to do it wrong.

If you haven't copied what you want to quote when you click the 'quote' button, it will bring in both the brackets with quote and unquote, and you then copy what you want to quote, and put in in between the two.

If you want to add a quote in between text you've already written, you can just type all the brackets, quote etc., the slash after the square bracket and typing 'quote' after the slash, with the bracket last. Because if you try to put a quote into already existing text, it will just put it at the end of your text otherwise.

So, here is an example:

You highlight what you want to quote

And here is another: (notice, with this method, it won't tell you what date the post you quoted was from, but I am sure you could add it with the name if you want to)

I know how to do just one quote

With this method, you can also put in quotes from websites, or whatever.

Ok,I just tinkering around,computer savvy NOT!LOL

But I couldn't get into the reply box(after the copy business)by clicking 'Add Reply'-I had to hit 'Reply' and then delete the whole of your post,then click 'paste'.

Is that right?I'm confusing myself! <_<

Thanks for trying to explain it to me Ursula :)

Uh oh,that's not right-no quotes round what I copied and pasted.

More practice needed!

There's a much easier way.

See the quote button below every post? Click on it and it turns red. So click on all of the quote buttons beneath the posts you wish to quote. When you've selected all of them, click the add reply button at the bottom and they're all there--dates, user names, and all.
