We use a quote when we want to refer to what someone has already mentioned or after finding something that was said out there on the www.

There are a few ways we can do it.

Method 1/ After reading what has been said in a post:-

We might not want all of the post, so we can modify it.

Left click and hold at the beginning of the words you do not require and pass the cursor over them until all you wish to remove is highlighted in blue, they will then be removed, when you press the backspace key..

Below is the same post altered:-



Then make sure that the cursor is flashing after the
at the end of what you want and you can type your reply. Pretty easy?[/quote]

Have read back and found less's lessons and can multiple quote one extra quote but then it seems to give error -but it is a start!

If you look at your post there is an end quote visible so you did something wrong. I spend a lot of time fixing quotes that people make mistakes wirh so hurry up and learn to do it then you can teach our 2 worse members how to do it

Just cracked it myself Di... didn't realise you had to press the multiple quote button as well as the quote one.

Used the three examples above to show it can be done but had to remove the superfluous [/quote] from your post first otherwise it ends up like below as the system ends the quote after the first [/quote] instruction. Good luck!

I also found you need to put all your quotes in the post first before you start typing. If you go back to add more you lose what you have already typed - or maybe that's just me.

Are we to expect a new avatar to reflect this? or isn't she smart enough to create one?
