In this post, scrolljoe asked about how to quote people on the forum.

I am still baffled by the THING in many ways and yet can't even find a way to use the QUOTE feature of the forum.

To quote someone else, place everything the other person said (that you want to quote) between [QUOTE ] and [/QUOTE ] and place everything you want to say either before [QUOTE ] or after [/QUOTE ].  You are allowed to have multiple quotes in a post, or even put quotes in a quote.  When the post is displayed, it will place everything between [QUOTE ] and [/QUOTE ] in a quote box.

Note: I had to place a space between the E and the ] so that it wouldn't create a quote box.  When you type it, do NOT put a space between the E and the ] or else it won't work.

If you forget to use both [QUOTE ] or [/QUOTE ] or misspell them, then it will print out the words instead of create a box, just like above, where I added a space.

If you press the Quote button, it automatically places that person's text between the quote tags, and you type your response before or after the quoted text.

Hopefully that helps.  I've been meaning to write some help pages on that.  This looks like a good start.

If you want to try it out, you can visit the Test Forum and play around with it.

Gotcha ! what I used to do was highlight what I wanted to quote and then press the Quote button which gave me the entire text.

Thanks a million.

Yeah, it's not smart enough to to that.  You have to manually copy and paste the text you want or get rid of the extra text you don't want to quote.

Reinforces the belief that the greatest computer is the one encased in that bony fortress of the skull. Give the Master a hand for that.

After all, who created the computer?

Oh, another thing I forgot to mention.  You can make it say:

by using [QUOTE=So-No-So] instead of [QUOTE] where So-N-So is the name of the person you are quoting.  If you use the quote button, it automatically fills this in.  If you do it manually, you will need to add the name in yourself.
