    Okay, I'm not that daft!:biggrin:

    I know how to use a quote. But how on earth do you guys use more than one quote in one post. Been trying for ages to figure this out, didn't want you guys thinking I was dumb! :rolleyes:

    But I give in - can't see how to do it. Please enlighten me :confused: :oops:

    I dunno, I just wrap qoute tags round the bits I want in quotes and if theyre in a different post go an copy an paste that. It takes ages.

    indeed, copy-paste the text from other posts into your message;
    highlight the pasted text;
    click the "quote" button (the little text balloon)

    In addition to the above, if you want to show who made the original post, edit the text to read "QUOTE=PeterBale" etc (between the usual brackets, of course!)

    That's how I've been doing it...maybe it's just cos I'm a bit of a duffer at this sort of stuff but it takes me yonks (and I can never remember how to spell peoples user names so i end up scrolling about umpteen times and the screen ends up going up and down more often than a new brides nightie!) :redface:

    The other thing to remember, if answering several points made by the same poster, you can simply open and close the Quote boxes as you go along, posting your own comments in between: if doing that, I always preview before posting, as I always end up forgetting to close one of the brackets somewhere along the line :oops:
