Title: Boxed Quotes
Post by: hoefer on September 26, 2008, 05:56:59 AM
Some of you reply to a post with boxed text quoting a previous post.  I am somewhat of a techno-tard, please help.  How do I do that?

Just hit the box marked QUOTE at the top corner of the post you're responding to. It'll fill in a box ready for you to post your response. Standard text editing then means you can trim down whatever is in the box to the relevant words you're responding to.

If you're responding to the quotes from a couple of people, scroll down the page when you're writing your post. At thetop corner of each previous entry in the thread is an option to "insert quote"...this will then add the selected message as a quote box right after the cursor position in your message.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the help, I had tried the button, but must of deleted the hypertext thingy cause the preview didn't show the box...  Thanks again.  Let's see if I got it...

Oops I put my spiel on the wrong side of the hypertext thingy (these are real advanced terms I'm using here...)  NOW I think I've got it...
