Re: How Do I Quote A Post?

Bottom right hand corner of the post, can you see a blue "box' with quote in it?

Charlie,

You have to be logged in to your account to see the quote link at the bottom of the post. Log in, then just click on the blue quote link button.

Re: How Do I Quote A Post?

got a feeling i might have (a) forget it or (b) do some kind of update of forum tech. Definitely no 'quote' box in the l.r. corner. Thanx anyway

Are you trying to do this from a phone? Because they do not always allow you to see everything those little buggers.

Re: How Do I Quote A Post?

There is a 'Quick Reply' box near the bottom of the page.
There is a 'Post Reply' button at the end of the thread, lower left.
There is a 'Quote' button inside each individual post, lower right.


Each post in the thread is surrounded by a grey/blue box.

When logged in on computer or phone,
In the lower right of that box will be 4 buttons.
One button has a graphic of a ship's wheel and the word 'Quote'
The next button has a graphic of a page and a large quote mark.
The next button has a graphic of a page and a quill.
The next button has a graphic of a thumbs up and the work 'Thanks'

To quote from a particular post,
Click the 'Quote' button.
The entire post will then appear in quotes in the top of the usual 'Reply to Post' page.

To quote from multiple posts,
In each post you want to quote, click the small box with the large quote mark.
After all those posts are selected, click on 'Post 'Reply' at the bottom of the thread (NOT the 'Quick Reply' near the bottom of the page).
All those posts will then appear in quotes in the usual 'Reply to Post' page.


When not logged in on computer or phone,
In the lower right of the post will be 1 button, the quote button.
Click, and it will take you to login. Then to the 'reply to post' page.


Or use copy and paste to quote, sometimes that's easier.

Do they let you watch all 136K by yourself??? I mean... there's quite a bit of immaturity and hijinks to keep an eye on...
