Thread: I don't know how to "Quote" !

  1. #1

    Default I don't know how to "Quote" !

    How do I "Quote" a message on my post and also how do I "Quote" part of it?
    I'm the kind of woman whose feet hit the floor each morning, and the Devil says........... " Oh, Blast She's Up !! "

    Best thing to do is do a test post here, click the Quote button and try editing it - once you get the hang of it it's easy and very neat, and you can always use the Preview Post facility to see how it will look, rather than actually posting only to find out you've missed something out.

    The multi-quote function is also very useful - there's a wee tutorial here

    Right, lets give this a go?

    When you edit the quote you need to leave the bits in square brackets alone, otherwise you don't get the quoted section separated in its own box.
