Quotes And Quoting

O.K. where to start? Well, what is a quote?

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:-

This gives us the whole of that 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 [/quote] at the end of what you want and you can type your reply. Pretty easy?

Re: Quotes And Quoting

another way to use quotations is when you have read through a long rambling thread,(such as this), and the person finally gets to the point, such as:-

"There you go, quoting is quite easy really".

You can use the quotation marks above.

This time what you do is copy just what you require from the post, by holding down the left button and highlighting it, right click select copy then press the
button.

Re: Quotes And Quoting

So we have copied the bit we want, now we need to put it between the quotation marks,
left click [ QUOTE][/QUOTE] with a flashing cursor will appear between them right click and paste

[ QUOTE]"There you go, quoting is quite easy really"[/QUOTE]

Again write your reply, then submit.

Quote:
"There you go, quoting is quite easy really"
I don't understand can we start again?

I know we've been told before, but I was still flummoxed.

I can do it, but only by opening lots of pages on Accy Web, and by then cutting and pasting after I've hit the quote button, on each seperate thing I want quoted.
I can rindy, but, lets see if I've put this simple enough for folk without trying to confuse too much eh?

"There you go, quoting is quite easy really".

Yes that's it, I've reached the end for now as with rindy just ask and either I or some other accywebber will promptly ignore you

Re: Quotes And Quoting

Thanks Uncle Less, sort of helpful.

Though I've just really confused my self, by hitting the air bubble icon on your post, and it was posted in my blog, rather than in this thread.
